JDC AFFILIATED ACADEMIES are currently not operating with the exception of New Zealand. The JDC will continue to react  and plan to the latest Covid 19 updates from the relevant governments in which affiliated acadmies operate and will make a decision in due course of when the JDC Academy system and its ranking system can begin to operate again. 


JDC TOUR EVENTS are currently not in operation due to the restrictions on venues and large gatherings. We are working closely with our partners to re start the tour when possible. With the news of Rileys this week we are also closely monitoring the situation and in touch with Rileys on a regular basis. The JDC will announce when it can resume the tour.


JDC JUNIOR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS is still planned for late November but due to the current situation with Covid 19 we are waiting for confirmation on dates, venues and ultimately if the tournament can take place as planned. The main issue is the venue is currently being used as a nightingale hospital.

Over the last few days just for some light entertainment the JDC and its members have been engaged in a 2 part quiz of 50 JDC and dart related questions. The winners picked at random will receive the following prizes and will be contacted by the JDC in the coming days. 







PRIZE 1 goes to - Mackenzie Wilson

The health and safety of our children, staff and volunteers is our main priority at all our events.

Currently, there are no plans to cancel, postpone or otherwise change the running of our events and we are in regular contact with our venues, all of which are operating as normal.

We are closely monitoring the situation and will follow advice from Public Health England, the World Health Organisation and both local and national government.


We would like to draw the attention of anyone who attends any of our events to the following general advice

    • Frequently clean your hands in soap and water, or with an alcohol-based hand rub. 
    • If you cough or sneeze, please cover your mouth and nose with a flexed elbow or tissue – throw the tissue away immediately and wash your hands;
    • Avoid contact with anyone who has a fever or cough;
    • Avoid unnecessary contact with ‘high touch’ areas such as handrails, lift buttons, door handles, surfaces etc;
    • If you experience difficulty breathing, have a high temperature or cough, please stay at home and contact a medical advisor by phone;
    • We recommend a thumbs up approach to oche etiquette during this outbreak. It will be deemed good oche etiquette to give a thumbs up to players and officials during and at the end of your matches. 

Please follow this advice and further information via the links below of the World Health Organisation and the NHS during this outbreak of the coronavirus.
