In which Division Should I be playing?
One of our goals at KB Kornhole Games is to grow the game of cornhole for both the competitive AND social player. We have a great community of experienced players BUT we want to include all skill levels. Believe me, it's no fun getting beat 21-0 time after time. Therefore, many of our events will include MULTIPLE DIVISIONS for both our singles and doubles tournaments. That way, you can play with people at your skill level. What's the difference? Note: tournament director has final say on division placement.
Note: If an event only has two divisions: Experienced and Social then the Experienced division is geared toward the Advanced & Competitive player and the Social division is geared toward the Beginner & Developing player.
Division Descriptions (ACL)
- Tier 1: Novice – This division is for players who are new to the game or play in their backyard. If we know you then this likely isn't the division for you. If you know a local bar or venue where you can play a weekly blind draw then this isn't the division for you. ACL Backyard level points are awarded for players/teams who compete at this level. (PPR Range: <6.0 / Dekaround Range: 0 – 50 points)
- Tier 2: Intermediate – This division is designed for players who have started to play regularly/competitively and have the occasional moments of brilliance followed by rounds of inaccuracy. Players at this level play frequently either with friends or at the local weekly blind draw. ACL Social level points are awarded for players/teams who compete at this level. (PPR Range: 6.0-7.0 / Dekaround Range: 51 – 70 points)
- Tier 3: Competitive – If you're competing at this level then you are likely playing at least once per week, if not more, in a competitive event. It's a good probability that you've played in a regional, conference or national event. Players at this level are talented and know how they stack up against other players. ACL Competitive level points are awarded for players/teams who compete at this level. (PPR Range: 7.0-8.0 / Dekaround Range: 71 – 90)
- Tier 4: Advanced – The best players in the state are competing in this division. Players/teams competing in this division are playing for the biggest payouts and the title of the best player/team in the state! Nothing more needs to be said. ACL Advanced level points are awarded for players/teams who compete at this level. (PPR Range: >8.0 / Dekaround Range: 91 – 120)
