Local USAMPC singles qualifier match play brackets will be held throughout the United States and Canada in April. A list of these events can be found on the UDisc app (coming soon!). Players that meet the qualifications described above can pay $45 to compete in one of these brackets. Please contact the TD to get more information on local details. The Local Qualifying Bracket may be conducted over a few days or over the period of a few weeks. The Local Qualifying Bracket TD will determine the timing of when the brackets need to be played. The $45 entry fee is a one time cost. Players will receive a Dynamic Discs Fuzion Burst Maverick and Latitude 64 Gold Burst Explorer in their player pack. If a player advances to the next levels, there are not additional entry fees. Winners of Local Qualifying Brackets will move on to the State/Province Bracket. Winners of the State/Province Bracket will move on to the Championship Bracket in Emporia, Kansas (June 22-24, 2018).
Local Qualifying Brackets – March/April 2018
State/Province Brackets – May 2018
Championship Bracket in Emporia, Kansas – June 22-24, 2018
Bracket TDs will establish the locations for the Local Qualifying Brackets matches.

The Championship Bracket will be hosted in Emporia, Kansas.
Match play is an exciting way to compete as a disc golfer. Match play has grown in popularity and the unique format provides an opportunity for using a different strategy than what disc golfers typically employ playing traditional stroke play. The event also allows amateurs another opportunity to experience tournament disc golf at the highest level.
