Founded in 2006, the purpose of the Advanced Singles League, ASL, is to promote darts in the Philadelphia area by providing a venue for players who wish to improve their individual game, as well as providing a platform for players to earn the right to be sponsored at major tournaments. Members of the ASL and will maintain friendly, competitive relationships with similar organizations involved in the sport of darts. The ASL is a singles league format that will run on Thursday nights along with QCEDL. The ASL is an open league for any player regardless of age, sex, ability level or geographic location. However no player may be associated with QCEDL as a Thursday or Tuesday night team player and the ASL during the same season.

20 weeks, broken into four - 5 week quarters plus one tournament after each 10 week half.
This is a two bracket system consisting of the top 6 as A Bracket and the rest of the field as B Bracket. The first 5 weeks of play the format is LOD into groups of four with round robin play within your group. We simply draw cards to determine who falls into which group and play is according to the board sheet. Every player will play 3 games against 3 opponents per night. We use a simple point system – One Win equals One Point. At the end of the first quarter, the top 6 players in terms of points moves to the A bracket, and the rest of the field stays in the B bracket.
We then play out another five weeks with the B bracket functioning as in the first quarter. The top 6 will play each other in scheduled matches (some week’s one match and some week’s two matches). The format will be 5 sets, best of 3 legs. After each half, we will have an LOD tournament for all players with a Prize for the top Players (4-8).
B Bracket Rule: In order to move up at the end of the 1st and 3rd quarters, you must have played a minimum of 3 out of 5 weeks in the quarter for your games to count.
All dues paid or otherwise raised are for the use of sponsoring our players for various tournaments. The ASL awards the top players from each bracket (to be announced) a fully paid room and entry for the singles event of that tournament chosen by ASL. In the event that player cannot attend that tournament, the player will receive the cash equivalent of that prize. We will see what the P.D.C. comes out with or the best tournament out there.
All sponsored players of the ASL are expected to represent our city and league with dignity and class. For this reason the ASL will impose a dress code for any tournament sponsored player for Saturday only. The dress code is simply to wear our polo shirt that will be provided, not our league shirt but our tournament shirt, no white sneakers and no blue jeans. Any breach is this dress code or misconduct during the events on Saturday will be addressed by the officers and directors of the ASL and will enforce any decision render at that meeting. In the event it’s one of the officers or directors being reprimanded he or she will not be present at that meeting. The officers and director reserves the right to seek outside advice for players, spectators or tournament directors to better render a decision.
