As Tournament Director, I hereby accept the terms of the PDGA Tour Sanctioning Agreement and agree to the following points

listed below. Please initial each of the following points and sign below.

Agree to follow and enforce the Official Rules of Disc Golf, Competition Manual, and Tour Standards. If any provision

of these documents is unacceptable I shall contact the Tour Manager and request a waiver

Agree to enforce the PDGA policy on the use of alcohol or illegal substances. (See Section 3.3 of the Competition Manual)

Agree that as TD I will be a current member of the PDGA in good standing and a certified official well before the start of the event

Agree to ensure that each player competes in an official division for which they are eligible, based on class (Pro, Amateur, Junior),

age, gender, and player ratings. See the Divisions, Ratings & Point Factors Table for more information.

Agree that for all SuperTour (A Tier) events, only PDGA current members will be allowed to compete, regardless of division.

If a player in question does not provide proof of membership (membership card, soft card, or name on the list of current

members provided by the PDGA office) that annual dues will be collected before the player is allowed to participate.

Agree that for B and C Tier events, all non-current or non-PDGA members (with the exception of those competing in a Youth

or Junior division) will only be allowed to compete upon payment of a $10 fee in lieu of membership. This $10 fee does not entitle

the player to the calculation of points or the assignment of a player rating.

New players who pay the $10 fee are eligible to receive a Supporting Level Membership with the PDGA. These players are

still required to pay the non-member fee at all PDGA sanctioned events until becoming a full member. TDs are

encouraged to hand out a supporting member information card (included in TD packages and available online) and/or direct

these players to supporting.pdga.com.

Agree to fill in and distribute the Soft Membership Card provided in the TD package to players who pay their annual PDGA dues

at the event.

Agree to pay a minimum of 40% of the Pro field and a minimum of 45% of the Am field as per the pay tables.

Agree to email the TD report via email to tourmgr@pdga.com within the deadlines specified in the Tour Standards. If a TD is unable

to submit results electronically he/she should ensure that this key task is assigned to an assistant TD or local club member with

the necessary skills. The PDGA will receive handwritten results at an additional charge of $25.

Agree to submit all fees (sanctioning, insurance, player, membership, etc.) to the PDGA within the specified time frame

as outlined in the Tour Standards.

Agree to submit two TD reports when you have a two day event with different divisions competeing on each day.

Agree to provide the individual Pro cash and retail value of Amateur/Junior merchandise won in the Scores worksheet of the TD report.

Agree that the tournament director and sponsoring organization understand that it is their responsibility to comply with all local, state and federal laws.
