    Hello all,

    on the subject of practicing, we(the moderators) were discussing setting up a practice high scores table for you like the one in the practice forum.

    We were thing Cricket Count-Up, 30 darts at 20, and 30 darts @ bull would be the 3 games.

    What would you yewts like to see or play? :D

    I think you all should decide on the games you would like to play for submitting practice scores. Give us your input on choices and then perhaps it can be worked out to have a practice ranking set-up for you. We may think we know what y'all will be comfortable and happy playing, but we need to hear it from you for the overall decision.

    hi anne

    i myself like doing the round the world doubs and trips it takes me about and hour to finish it. i also like the 100@ game dad and i do this a lot of times during the week my best at 100@ 20's right now is 103 and for the 19's is 98 .

    i play 501 and 1001 everyday either before school or after my best game of 501 is 19 darts but usuall get around mid to high 20's my worst game is i think 48 lol bad day.
    i tryed John Parts blackbelt but decided to strangle dad for showing me this, John.. this is very hard but good pratice.

    Any games you come up with im willing to try!

    One thing to consider is that we want all the kids we can get to participate so keeping the format shorter is likely desireable at first (like the one for the main site which actually started with just 3 practice games and eveolved into the one of today).

    I would recommend a tiered system where the youth members can participate in either of the tiers.

    Here is my idea:

    1. First level would be games like John Mentioned -- short, simple and easy to figure out scores in.

    2. A higher level of games designed to challenge the youth player a bit more and give them something to work at once they've advanced beyond the 1st level (ringer is clearly passed this point even).

    3. The final tier would be one similar to the main system in which the games would be the most challenging.

    Using the Blackbelt theme you could set belts based on the tiers so a white belt would be a lower score in tier one and a black belt would be the higher scores of tier 3.

    What do you 'yewts' (as John would say) think?

    Guest Guest thinks Craig and PDL need to be invited to join us here :wink: On & Gone had good ideas for the adult one . Maybe he has a little input on the yewts section too. :)

    hey first of my introduction my name is shawn feenstra and am 16 years old. i play darts ion parkhill along with rocky and ringer. i just competed at my FIRST provincial tournament and got top 16!!!:D anyways about this practice thing i think it is great but we should not really have as many games as the adults have mainly because we want it to be easy for us younger players to practice also because practice makes perfect :?: . all the things I know is that when you practice anything, you get better at it. now back to the practice scores. i think that eric and the other mods and stuff should put the 100 @ 20, BOBS, CCU, and 100 @ bull. i think it would be a good idea though to change it from 100 to a lower number for the youths that do not really want to concentrate on one number. the main reason i think this is because when you focus on one number for such a long time (even the amount of darts in a game) you start to eventually loose ur concentration on that number and you can't hit it any more. i dont no about everyone put my gmes are about 20 darts with my best 14 darts. and i even loose my shot for twenties in those games.

    oopsies ^ that was long sorry everybody.
