🥏 How do I run or play in a league on UDisc?

Are you new to running leagues on UDisc? If so, below you will find some helpful instructions and tips on how to be successful. The League Director Guide is also a great space to reference.

Before an event:

  • Submit a league application. You can submit your league for approval here. Make sure to include all relevant information. The more details you can provide, the more likely we are to approve your league. Check out this post for some common reasons that a league may not be approved.

  • Set up your league. When your league is approved, you will receive an email letting you know. You can use the links in that email to access your league manage tools or head to Log in | UDisc and tap on your league. In your manage tools, you can use the General tab to enter important information about your league. Here you can make changes to the details of your league. Additionally, you can set the play format and start type, create divisions, and define any optional extra tags (e.g., women friendly, glow, restroom details). Don’t forget to add a cover photo or logo from the Photos tab.

  • Create your first league event. When you have completed your league setup, it’s time to create your first event. Go to the ‘Events’ tab on the left side, and click to ‘Schedule a New Event’ or tap the**+ Create a new event** button.

  • Set up your general event settings. You can name your event, specify the event type, select date and time, set your format and start type, choose your course and layout, set a scorecard message if you wish, specify divisions (optional), allow multiple entries (optional), and set event specific optional extras (e.g., ace pool, beginner friendly). More details about

    • What are the possible event types?
      • Single Day Event - A one round event that happens on only one day.
      • Single Day Recurring Event - A one round event that happens on a specific day each week for a number of weeks.
      • Multi-Day Event - A one round event that spans multiple days
    • Can I create events at different courses?
      • Yes! Even if your league is set to a specific ‘Home’ course, whenever you create an event, you can select any course and any layout you wish to play.
    • Do all of my events have to have the same format and start type?
      • Every event can be set to whichever format and start type that you want to use, this does not have to match the basic settings you have for your league.

    Events become active at midnight on the day of the event, and auto-complete at 8pm your local time the day after your event ends. Please note, the course, layout, and other event details cannot be edited once an event has begun.

During an event:

  • All members must have a UDisc account. They are not required to have UDisc Pro, a free account or UDisc Pro trial will work great.

  • Players can check in to the event in the app. From the ‘Events’ tab of the UDisc App, players can locate your league event, and tap ‘Check In.’ This will add players to the event, and allow them to create a league scorecard. If a player does not have their phone with them, or does not have a UDisc account, another player can assist in getting them checked in. From the league page they can tap ‘Players’ then ‘Add Player’ or search for a player using the search box and filter tools.

  • UDisc Leagues use live scoring. At least one player on each card must be keeping score. But with live scoring, all players on the card will have access to it in their UDisc App and can add scores and see changes in real time.

  • One player per group should create a scorecard. Once all players in a group are checked in, one of the players can create a scorecard for that group either from the league page, or from the Rounds tab of their UDisc app. They will add the players in their group to their card from the list of checked-in players.

    • If a scorecard grouping changes after the card is created, a player on the card can use the scorecard menu in the top right to access the ‘Add/Remove Players’ option.
  • Keep an eye on the leaderboard. During the round, from the scorecard or the league page, you can open the leaderboard and track scores in real-time.

  • Reach out to checked-in players with an urgent push notification. During the event if the league admin needs to get a message out to checked-in players, they can send a notification from their league manage tools. Navigate to the current event, and tap the Manage event button at the top of the page, then select Send urgent push notification.

After an event:

  • Complete your event. Events will auto-complete at 8pm your local time the day after the event, however, you can manually complete your event from the Leaderboard or by tapping Complete event at the top of the event in the app.

  • Check your league standings. If you have standings enabled and the recently played event was within the timeframe set, your league standings should update once the event is complete. You can learn more about standings here.

  • Make necessary updates to scores after the event has completed. If the event has already completed and scorecards are locked, but you find that a score is incorrect and needs to be fixed, you can do this from the Leaderboard. In your League tools, tap the Leaderboard button. You’ll then see the full list of cards and completed scores - tap the Edit (pencil) icon next to the player you’d like to edit, then Adjust scores and penalties.

    You can then make any needed changes to scores for that player, and when finished tap Save. (Please note, if you are accessing this page on a mobile device, you may need to flip the orientation of your device and scroll right to see all scores.)

  • Add payout and bag tag numbers. From the Actions tab on the internal Leaderboard, tap Edit player values. Here you’ll be able to add payout information and add bag tag numbers that might have been handed out after the round.
  • Export scores to CSV. If you wish, from the internal Leaderboard tab, tap Export.

The League Director Guide & League Player Guide are also great resources.
