Rankings Calculation, Approval Process and Release Schedule
for WFTDA Rankings
Rankings Calculation Process and Member Review
- Score Entry and Verification
See the WFTDA Sanctioning Policy for score submission deadlines and procedures.
The WFTDA Rankings Committee will enter the score from all sanctioned games into the Rankings Calculator. The score will be considered unofficial until the full paperwork is received and logged by the WFTDA Sanctioning Committee.
- Member Review
At the end of a public-release ranking period (generally one month), the WFTDA Rankings Committee will post the rankings on the WFTDA Forum for review and will list any sanctioned games that are missing scores. A deadline will be provided for any feedback on the rankings.
The WFTDA membership will review the results and report any missing or incorrect scores to the WFTDA Rankings Committee.
After review, the rankings will be posted online.

Rankings are calculated and released monthly. Public releases of rankings will occur approximately one week after the rankings period ends, with the exception of June 30 rankings. June 30 rankings will be released with the Playoff brackets.

Should a WFTDA Playoff take place on a weekend at the end of a ranking period, in such a way that games are split between rankings periods, the WFTDA Rankings Committee will calculate all games in that tournament in the first of the two rankings periods.
The WFTDA Rankings Committee Chair may, at their discretion, choose to calculate rankings more than the monthly interval for member league informational purposes only. Rankings are only final at the conclusion of a ranking period.
