One of our goals at Cornhole Idaho is to grow the game of cornhole for all division players. 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 and League committees have the final say on division placement.
ACL Pro means that you have achieved the highest skill level in the sport and have accepted the terms laid out by the ACL to become an ACL Pro.
ACL Pro players must play in the Pro division at Nationals and the Advanced division at Regional and Conference events.
(Dekaround Range: 91 – 120)
Anyone can play in the Advanced Division knowing that this is where the best of the best will compete at the Regional and Conference level (*note at the National Level Pro’s will no longer participate in the Advanced Division). This division offers maximum points towards player rankings. There can certainly be top level players in the Advanced Skill Level who have not yet earned/accepted the ACL Pro Player Title.
This player can execute sliding the bag and airmailing the bag as needed. Player fully understands game strategy and likely plays and practices on a regular basis.
(Dekaround Range: 91 – 120)
The Competitive Division is intended for players who are good, but not quite ready for the Advanced level. For areas that have a lot of depth at the top end of players, it makes sense for a Director to offer Advanced and Competitive Divisions for Local, Regional and Conference tournaments.
This player fully understands game strategy, but may struggle with consistency. At times this player looks like they can beat anyone, but then in a subsequent game or round can struggle. Player is at a high Competitive level and should work towards getting better by challenging Advanced level players.
(Dekaround Range: 71 – 90)
The Intermediate Division is for players that enjoy playing casually but are competitive enough to beat the Novice level players. Players can enjoy the sport and events without having to play the top players.
This player has a feel for the distance needed to toss the bag, but can be erratic in getting the bag to consistently be in the middle of the board. This level of player is working on developing a consistent pitch.
(Dekaround Range: 51 – 70)
The Tailgating Division is intended for beginners and large events that have a lot of Intermediate players.
This player has limited experience with the game and usually has very little control over where the bag is going.
(Dekaround Range: 0 – 50 points)
