There is a new way of sjoelen competition...on the Internet.
II will be a fun way to compete with others who may not have any other way to compete in a club or league environment. It is the intent that the Internet sjoelen league shall not compete with local sjoelen clubs or leagues.
So the results of the Internet Sjoelen League will not be binding for any club or national leagues.
This league is for recreational purposes only and is independent of any official sjoelen league
In general we are thinking to have each player submit a 10 game score each week by Friday evening. The Fall 2017 term will run say for 13 weeks, but only 10 weeks will be counted. And at the end of this period we will total all the scores and place all the players in 12 different classes depending on their average scores. Players that are part of sjoelen clubs should report the total of the first 10 games played that week. Players not part of a club play 10 games in 1 or 2 sessions on their own sjoelbak and report that score.
Obviously this is based on the honor system and hopefully each player will play with a partner who would keep score for them.
The chief aim for this league is to give players who live in countries like the US or Australia an opportunity to compete with others around the world. Obviously the players in the Netherlands and other European countries will get much higher scores, hence the many classes. This should encourage each player to practice more and try and get into the next higher class. Then in the winter term 2018 each player knows what class they play in. For the club players in Europe it will be a fun way to play against their WK competition throughout the year and hone their skills even further. We believe this will raise the quality of sjoelen all around the world. The results of this league are non binding of course and are for recreational purposes only.
From our latest communication:
First I would like to introduce you to the four people who helped start this league:

Judging from the reactions we have heard so far people are excited and ready to start competing with people all over the world
We are excited to start this new adventure and only time will tell where this will lead.
The Fall 2017 season will start the week of September 22nd and will tally the scores on Friday September 22nd and will continue to tweak the league rules as needed.
