The Western Maryland Dart Association is the largest organized steel-tip dart league in the Frederick, MD USA area. We have been running continuously for over 40 years. Our 400+ members participate in multiple divisions, on dozens of teams, sponsored by many of the Frederick area's bars and restaurants. Our primary goal is to provide a fun, challenging and rewarding darting experience for all our members. In WMDA, excellence and good sportsmanship are required. We stress individuality of each participant, and comaraderie among all WMDA members.
We have 3 seperate seasons. Fall, Spring, and Summer. These seasons play year-round so you can always get a team together no matter what time of the year it is.
Don't think you're good enough to play league darts? You don't have to be an expert! We have separate divisions for players of all skill levels, from beginners to experts. In the WMDA, everyone can play and anyone can win.
Think it might be too expensive? Steel tip darts is by far one of the most inexpensive leagues to play in. Pool, Bowling, even soft tip darts average anywhere from $15-25 a week to play, and that doesn't include other costs. Depending on how many players you have on a team at MOST our dues cost a player on average $2.50 a week per season. Yes---$2.50 a week!
Interested? Want more information? Contact us and we'll help you get on your way to playing league darts. After all, that is what the WMDA is all about—playing darts and having fun doing it.

Today is the big day we return to normal programming, with the captains meeting for the Fall 2021 season! Tonight's Captains Meeting is at Orioles Nest #331 at 7:00PM.

1. Hand out dart boards, team packets, and tablets (if needed)
2. WMDA Rules Overview / League Review
3. DartConnect League Use Overview / Demo
4. Luck of the Draw Tournament!
Please ensure at least one team member can make it tonight to pick up your dartboard and packet -- if no one from your team can make it, please let us know in advance so we can figure out a plan to get you the board and packet prior to next Wednesday.

At the Captains Meeting, we will be doing a demo and training on DartConnect. DartConnect is a dart scoring application for tablets, which will be used for all legs and all matches in Fall 2021 -- electronic scoring speeds up the night and we'll do an overview at the meeting for any new shooters. We may also be doing elections at the Captains Meeting, so all are welcome to come and there will be an LOD following the handing out of the Captains packets, dart boards, and tablets.
If you are not a team for this session and would like to play, please feel free to post in the 'Discussion' tab on the WMDA Facebook or send an E-Mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you find a team or get a team together. There is also a 'Looking for a Team' section on the wmda.org website that has some shooters already looking for teams.
This is a very exciting season for WMDA and we hope that you will join us this session! Please E-Mail email@example.com with roster forms, if you need a copy of the roster form, or if you have any questions. Also continue to check the WMDA Facebook for the most updated news.
