The cri­te­ria for play­ers wish­ing to take part in the 2018 South Pa­cific Darts Cham­pi­onship in Van­u­atu will be given out by the end of the year.

Fiji Darts As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Nyla Al­fred said yes­ter­day the com­mit­tee would be set­ting out a list but they have an idea of what they would be look­ing for. “Even though the com­mit­tee has yet to de­cide on a fi­nal cri­te­ria, but we have an idea of what we will be look­ing at for those play­ers who are in­ter­ested,” Al­fred said. “We will be look­ing at the stand­ing of the play­ers through­out all tour­na­ments this year and next year to make sure that they are con­sis­tent. “Con­sis­tency is im­por­tant and that is one thing we will be look­ing at be­cause we want to make sure th­ese play­ers are im­prov­ing in each game and not the other way round. We will be look­ing at whether they are team play­ers and can work well in a team en­vi­ron­ment. “Their char­ac­ter would be an­other thing we would be look­ing at. Th­ese are not the only cri­te­ria we will be look­ing at and it is just some of the things I know we will look at. “When we hand it out at the end of the year, those in­ter­ested in try­ing out for the team for the cham­pi­onship will know what we are look­ing for. “Since tak­ing part in such a com­pe­ti­tion over­seas is a first for Fiji Darts. “We will be seek­ing help from other sport­ing fed­er­a­tions and FASANOC to help us come up with cri­te­ria.” Al­fred also said that two Nauru teams would most likely to come down next year for com­pe­ti­tions which would be a prepa­ra­tion plat­form. “The same Nauru team who came down last month said they want to come down again next year as well. “Noth­ing is set but we are work­ing on get­ting them back here be­cause hav­ing com­pe­ti­tion with them would be good and we will use it as a plat­form to test our play­ers.

“We will still be hold­ing tri­als next year as well, so it will be a very ex­cit­ing year for Fiji Darts.” Edited by Leone Cabenatabua
