Competition Formats


Individual scoring events-  anglers earn points based on individual placing only.

-This can be done via split beat format where angler who may be paired in teams or not, will fish half a beat for half the session and then switch with the angler or team mate fishing the other half of their beat.

– This can be utilized using a team format where sessions are scored on team and individual basis where teams fish the same beat but utilize separate score cards.  Anglers may fish split beat format or same beat format based on the comp organizers discretion. A team placing will be derived based on separate placing, or by combining individual placings. Individual placing will be scored per usual procedures.

Team scoring events-  Cuprace events are the only events where teams earn points.  4 events through the season plus a end of year championship.  Each Team recieves preregistration for 4 anglers, 4spots if individual or 2 spots if 2man teams.  After pre registration spots, open registration will be used to add anglers based on team affiliation in equitable fashion.  If there are 12 open registration spots, then each team would essentially have an opportunity to get 2 more anglers in the event IF there is equal amount of team anglers in open registration.  These spots will be filled based on order of registration based on equal distribution of team affiliation (see team affiliation requirements).  These anglers would be wild cards in the event and could be in the top four of the event that contribute to team standings.   Each event takes the top 4 anglers that placed for each team to place team standings and award cuprace points.

Anglers earn points on the leaderboard based on their placing. All events have a maximum point earning of 36 points and reduce by 1.5 points for each position before any multipliers are applied.

1 day events have a 1 time multiplier

2 day events have a 2 time multiplier

3 day and championship events have a 3 time multiplier.

Single Day Event Example:

20 person individual tournament

Maximum Points = 20

1st place   20  x 1 (1 day multiplier)  = 20

2nd place  18.5 x 1 = 18.5

3rd place   17 x 1 = 17

Two Day Event Example:

48 person individual tournament

Maximum Points = 36

1st place 36 x 2 (2 day multiplier) = 72

2nd place 34.5 x 2 = 69

3rd place 33 x 2 = 66

After multipliers are applied, individual teams on events utilizing a 2 man team format will have their points split evenly.

Two day ( 2 Man Team Format ) Event Example:

24 – Two Teams

Maximum Points : 24

1st place  24 x 2 (2 day multiplier = 48 / 2 (2 man split) = 24

2nd place 22.5 x 2 = 45/2 = 22.5

3rd place 21 x 2 = 42/2 = 21

Championship Event ( 2 Man Team Format ) Example:

20 – Two Teams

Maximum Points : 20

1st place  20 x 3 (3 day multiplier = 60 / 2 (2 man split) = 30

2nd place 18.5 x 3 = 55.5/2 = 27.75

3rd place 17 x 3 = 51/2 = 25.5

Cup Race events-  Teams are guaranteed 2 registration spots if event is two man team, or 4 registration spots if individual registration.  Teams have until 30days prior to the event to get as many entries fielded as possible before the unaffiliated anglers can be used to fill empty spots for the event.  Event host will work off the registration list to try to balance the team distribution as much as possible, balancing off the second highest fielded teams number of entries.  A team counts toward cuprace points when both anglers on a 2man team are rostered members of that team at the beginning of the season.  No substitutions allowed for a team using a non affiliated angler.  Individual scoring for cuprace events will utilize placing, x 3xmulitplier, then divided by the 2man team function

*Team Affiliation Requirements:  All teams are required to submit a finalized roster no later than January 15th each year with league finalization occuring no later than February 15th of the season year.  Rosters can not be changed with additions until the following season. Anglers wishing to no longer fish under a teams name may do so at any point during the season by contacting league administration. 

As of January 4th,2020  these formats are approved by the SEFFL Board.  Any other format may be presented to the board for inclusion based on validity.
