If you are reading this most likely you are an individual that has recently joined the GVDA, are considering the possibility or just want to know more about us. In any case WELCOME!
The Genesee Valley Darts Association is a traveling steel tip league that operates in the Rochester, NY area. We are a membership organization that has been promoting the sport of darts for 40 years. Our next (Fall 2021) season is fast approaching, marking a long overdue return to darts after the suspension of the Winter 2020 season last March. The signup event and tournament will be on August 31st 2021 from 7pm, at Sunset Lanes- come on down and sign up, play in the $250+ tournament or just chat with us and other dart players.
Contact us at any time if you are interested in playing. We have provisions for accepting new teams through the first few weeks of any season, or we can put you in touch with existing teams who are looking to add to their roster.
Our primary night of play is Tuesday although we also sponsor several tournaments for our members throughout the year. We run three seasons each year: Winter Season in January - May, a smaller Summer Season from May-August and Fall Season from September to December. Additionally, as a member of the ADO (AMERICAN DARTS ORGANIZATION), we sponsor qualifying tournaments that provide our members access to regional and national play. Each year we run the Rochester Open dart tournament with sanction from the ADO. We also assist taverns in setting up and running their own tournaments that are open to all players.
A regular team is 4 players or more. You can play with three but will need to forfeit points from that night. We don't do advanced line-ups or computer assignment so there is an element of strategy when matching up against the other team.
Player dues are currently $30 per player per calendar year. There are no weekly or per game fees.
Tavern fees are $60 per team per season (reduced in summer) and we ask as a courtesy (but don't require) that the tavern put out some food for the teams (a sheet pizza, or a few dozen wings).
Whether you are a team looking for a tavern, an individual looking for a team or especially a tavern interested in putting together a team, this website should provide the information you need. Come on in and look around. If you still have questions please click the link for contact information to be directed to the right person. Thank you for visiting and may your darts always fly straight!
