Effective Dec. 1, 2018, ALL new players will start as a Skill Level 3.
NOTE: Local League Management is authorized to assign a higher starting skill level if they believe the higher skill level more accurately reflects the new player’s true pool playing ability.
The skill level of new players may not immediately reflect their true ability since the player’s ability is not yet known. It is not unusual for a new player’s skill level to fluctuate during the first few weeks. A player’s skill level is not considered established until they have 10 actual match scores in that format on their record.
Please refer to the Official Team Manual, page 23.
