Golf

Golfers will participate in four regular season meets in an effort to meet a qualifying score making them eligible to participate in the European Championship. The lowest qualifying score will be dropped and then the other three scores will be averaged to arrive at a qualifying score. DoDDS-E uses the Stableford system of scoring for both regular season matches and the championships. Each player will score as follows:

  • 1 point for a double bogey
  • 4 points for a birdie
  • 2 points for a bogey
  • 6 points for an eagle or ace
  • 3 points for a par

**After a double bogey, players will pick up their ball and continue to the next hole.

 



Tennis

Tennis

Schools are scheduled to compete within their region during the regular season with win/loss records from these matches being used to determine qualifiers for the European Championships. At the end of the season, a panel of coaches will review all results and make recommendations for qualifiers. Criteria used to make these determinations may include win/loss records, previous place at the European Championships, and strength and records of opponents. Athletes will then be placed into pools where they will play a round robin format with the top 2 players in each pool advancing to the semi-final matches. Players may participate in singles and doubles during match play in the regular season, but at the Europeans, players may enter either singles or doubles.

 



Volleyball

Volleyball

During the regular season, varsity teams play a best of 5 set match against regional opponents and junior varsity teams will play a best of 3 set match.  Teams will open the season with a "jamboree" weekend and will then play a six-week regular season schedule followed by the post season championships where teams will compete within their division for team titles.
