Glow League 2021

The sun is setting earlier and earlier and there is at least one reason that that is a good thing. It’s getting dark enough to start up our Glow League aka Rundle After Dusk aka R.A.D!

Glow League Details

Glow League will run on Thursday, September 23rd, October 1st (Friday Night Lights event), then October 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th. Most of the rounds will be at Rundle, with the possible exception of the Friday Night Lights event that may be hosted at another course in Edmonton.

Getting Ready for 2021 EDGA Leagues!

As we approach the start of the 2021 EDGA League season, it may be a good idea to go over the leagues and some of the ins-and-outs of how we are going to play this year. Haven’t signed up for a league yet? The first step in all of this is to become a member of EDGA and register for your league(s) of choice today!

2021 EDGA League Overview

2021 EDGA League Overview

Using UDisc at League

Although some of our leagues will have different structures, all of our Leagues will be using UDisc to keep track of scores each week. So first things first, players need to install the UDisc app on their phones. After that, we have put together a little step-by-step instruction on how to score your group’s league round in UDisc.

Join your League on UDisc

 

  • Open your UDisc app and click the “More” button on the bottom row
  • Scroll down and click on UDisc Leagues
  • Search “EDGA” to find a list of our leagues
  • Select the League you’d like to join from the list
  • Scroll down and click “Join League”

 

Create a League Scorecard

 

Each round will have one designated scorer. If you have been designated as that round’s scorer, you will need to create the scorecard using the following steps:

  • Select “Rounds” on the bottom row
  • Select the course your league will be playing at
  • On league nights, there will be an EVENT that you can click on rather than the layout (It is very important that you click this and not just a regular layout)

 

“Check-in” and add players on your card

 

  • Select “Check In”
  • Add all players who will be added to the card that day and click “Confirm Players” (all players will be notified to check-in on their phones)
  • Once all players have checked-in, click “Create Scorecard” and score the round for each player on your card

 

Once the round is over ensure that you finalize the scorecard in the app so that all players scores will be uploaded to the league.

Let’s Go!

If all of this is a lot of information, each league will have experienced players and EDGA members who administer the leagues on site, so feel free to ask questions!

Can’t wait to see everyone out on the courses! (social distanced of course)

2021 Bag Tags

We are always looking to find value for our members and more ways to enjoy our great sport!

With that in mind, Edmonton Disc Golf Association members have the option to purchase bag tags for $5 when they register and they will be able to join the EDGA Bag Tag Laddder.

Bag tag challenges are just another way for players to compete on the courses without having to spend a bunch of extra money.

There are many ways to play on the Bag Tag Ladder. On league nights, groups may agree to play for tags, you can challenge another player for their tag and arrange a time to play, or you can challenge another player at a tournament for an extra layer of competition during the round!

Rules and more information on bag tags can be found on the Bag Tag Ladder page.

EDGA Leagues 2021!

The Edmonton Disc Golf Association is proud to announce that we will be hosting 4 separate leagues for our members during the 2021 disc golf season.

In many years, the Rundle Park League was the only league that was hosted by EDGA, but with an explosion in disc golf popularity and with new courses being added locally,  we have the ability to run 4 separate leagues that will start in April.

On Tuesday nights, players will be able to play in The Hills League. After a successful inaugural season, the league has expanded to provide options for players. There will be an amateur division where players will enter draws for plastic and other prizes, or players can try their hands at the pro division with cash payouts. Both divisions will cost $75 for EDGA members to register in.

Wednesday nights will be the night for EDGA’s two newest leagues: The Norwester League and our Women’s League. Norwester will run out at the 9-hole course on the west end of the city and will feature cash payouts for a $75 registration fee. The Women’s League is a league for our local female disc golfers with just as much competition baked in as the players want there to be! It will be hosted at various courses throughout the season, will cost $0 and players will play for draws and prizes.

Thursday nights will remain Rundle League night. Our longest running league, it will once again be a tiered, cash payout league and will cost EDGA members $100 to enter.

Thank you sponsors!

We would like to take the opportunity to thank our sponsors who have stepped up to ensure that the league experiences for our players are above and beyond!

Hermitage Fundraiser Tournament

Help us build a new course in Edmonton! The Edmonton Disc Golf Association is hosting the Edmonton Hermitage Fundraiser Tournament on the weekend of Sunday, March 21st, 2021.

The PDGA sanctioned C-tier tournament will have pro and amateur divisions, as well as women’s divisions and will cost players with PDGA memberships $40 to enter. Money raised from the tournament will help to pay for equipment and other essentials for a potential new course at Hermitage Park.  Players who miss the opportunity to register for the tournament, can choose a donate option on the tournament registration page.

If you’d like to register or donate to the cause, head over to the tournament page at Disc Golf Scene.

For any questions, please contact Tournament Director and EDGA Board Member Wally Ovalle.

COVID-19 Update (2020-05-22)

Hello all,

While our 2020 season remains on hold, there is some good news: Edmonton has re-opened its disc golf courses. The city has issued a list of requirements and guidelines to help keep us, and our loved ones, safe. Please follow these as, if the city sees unsafe behavior, it is possible they could close the courses again.


https://www.edmonton.ca/programs_services/emergency_preparedness/covid-19.aspx

In all re-opened spaces, users must follow public health guidelines including:

  • Maintaining 2 metre physical distance
  • Gathering in groups of 50 people or fewer
  • Only sharing common equipment with members of the same family or cohort
  • Staying home if you feel sick
  • Bringing your own hand sanitizer
  • Washing and sanitizing your hands before and after using these areas

Some new guidelines will be in place:

  • Users should use local playgrounds in their neighbourhoods and sanitize their hands before and after use.
  • Equipment should only be shared by members of the same household or their family cohort. (Editor’s note: it’s best not to touch
    others’ discs, even when clearing the basket.)

COVID-19

Hello all,

The 2020 EDGA season is on hold for now. We’re hoping to run some events late summer or early fall and we’ll have more details as the situation evolves.

Both Edmonton courses are closed temporarily as per the City of Edmonton’s order and we don’t have a projected date for reopening. EDGA recommends that people do not play.

2019 memberships have been extended and are valid through 2020.

Stay healthy. We hope to see you on the course as soon as it’s safe to do so.


City announces additional sport fields and court closures

April 27, 2020

Effective immediately, tennis courts, pickleball courts, basketball courts, volleyball courts, disc golf and premier sports fields are closed. This is to ensure the health and safety of Edmontonians and to meet provincial orders around physical distancing. Park spaces like baseball diamonds and soccer fields will be open to the public for casual use only starting May 1, weather permitting.

Users of baseball and soccer amenities must continue to adhere to two metre physical distancing rules, ensure gatherings are kept to 15 people or fewer, and avoid or limit touching commonly touched surfaces like sporting equipment or stationary field objects. We understand the benefits of outdoor activity, and we want to help keep everyone safe. Please keep your physical distance and interact safely with others when outdoors.
