SCT Leagues 2017

Written by Motts on January 31 2017

Those of you who have been with us for awhile know how competitive the SCT Leagues are. Not only are they fun to be a part of, in some of them you have an opportunity to become the envy of your friends by winning a shiny new paid of Blundstone boots.

We have a variety of leagues you can join:

League of Extraordinary Coaches (LoEC) – our 3 high performance leagues available to only the best-of-the-best coaches.

Standardย – providing an excellent level of competition for the above average coach.

Chick’s – run by my long-suffering partner, Richo, ladies only is the order of the day.

Technical – where every coach in the league starts with the exact same team. You’ve got to be good to win this bad boy.

Dead Team – you submit a team at the beginning of the year and don’t touch it all season. We’re hoping Father Dougal will release last year’s results some time before the bye.

If you’re keen to be involved in any of these, here’s what you have to do:

  1. Email me: motts at supercoachtalk dot com by 5pm Friday, February 10. After that deadline, I can’t guarantee you’ll get into the league you want.
  2. State your alias on the website (if you’ve got one) and which league(s) you would like to be a part of in 2017.
  3. If applying for LoEC, provide your 2016 TEAM NAME, TOTAL SCORE and SEASON RANKย (this is now conveniently located under Home / Team History / 2016 Season). Anyone who doesn’t provide this information when applying for LoEC will not make the cut. Only the highest 51 scores will make LoEC. Anyone whoย misses out will automatically be put into one of our Standard Leagues (which will also be ranked).
  4. Wait patiently for me to respond via email with a league code.

That last part is key. As you can imagine I receive well over 100 applications every year and it takes time to organise everything. Know that if you send me an email, I will get back to you. Just give me a few weeks.

If you’ve got any questions, whack ’em in Comments. Otherwise, open up your email client and get cracking!

  1. Regarding The Dead Team League we are still waiting on last years results from Father Dougal who obviously still has people to consul in his home state of Washington after the shock election result.

    1. I’m in Maryland right by DC actually, so right in the middle of things, with a *lot* of stressed people. This site is a welcome relief from all that!

      I expect I can have the DTL done soon. Afraid to promise by the end of the weekend but shooting for it. Once I get that done I can move onto articles for this season. I’m well behind where I wanted to be at this point, but real life has been a bear for a while. Still have some idea about things to research and write about……

      I’m not eligible for anything SCT leagues other than the contributors after a not so good result last season. Which is something I should write about I think; other can learn from my mistakes.

      1. No worries Father D. of all people i understand the stresses and life getting in the way.
        Anyway i can wait a bit longer to be announced last years Dead Team League winner!

        I look forward tolong meeting you on the Supercoach field again this year in the 10 team league we are both in again this year.
        Even though i took out the title in that league last year and as bad a year you had you still managed to trounce me on both occasions we met.

        Father your articles are the favourites of many SCT readers so it is good you are back on board with the SCT team again.

        Good Luck this year Father D. with your articles and with your Supercoach team.

  3. Thanks to everyone who has applied so far. I’ve received over 50 emails which I’ll start going through today and will provide an update on the cutoff average so far for LoEC qualification.

    Just a note for all coaches who want to play in our Tech Leagues. As we saw last year, the Herald Sun is very stringent on the One Team Per Coach rule. So if you want to be in our Tech Leagues and manage your own team, you either have to accept that you’re not going to be permitted to win the $50k or you’re going to have to be VERY careful about how you manage both teams. Keep in mind that the admins are able to track IP addresses.

    I suggest finding someone you live with who doesn’t have a team and using their details for the Tech League. Get in writing that they’ll hand over the $50k in its entirety if your Tech League team takes it out though!

    1. Hey Catta, keen to be in the league again but I can’t seem to open the old email address that I logged my team in on. Maybe if you could send me the code to doubleddavo at gmail dot com.
      Team name ballsandall@sct
      Cheers mate.

  7. Fellow Coaches,

    Apart from the leagues as above for โ€˜Classicโ€™ SC, we also have a SCT Draft League up and running. Last year this was a highly engaging, fun and competitive league to be a part of, with the Bearded Burblers taking out the big one from the crowd favourite โ€˜Deesasterโ€™.

    So if you would like to be part of the ultimate Draft League for this season, drop a โ€œyayโ€ in the comments below and if successful youโ€™ll receive an email with the league code.

    ***Disclaimer***
    Please only show interest if youโ€™re committed to playing out the whole season as well as making yourself available for the live draft. (Time and date TBD once the league is full)

    1. If there is a spot open I’d be up for that BB. Not sure I’d be much good at a draft but I’m keen to give it a go.

      1. You’re in gents, good to have you aboard.

        We’re about half full now

        No need to stress Densen, the Draft comp has a funny way of evening itself out throughout the course of the year

  8. If we enter the “Dead Team” league does that mean our starting team is recorded by Father Dougal and we then play Supercoach as normal or are we required to leave our team unchanged all season?
    Also are the points taken from our starting 22 or from the full 30 players listed?

    1. The Dead League is conducted via spreadsheet. Its completely separate to the SC website.

      Not sure about your second question. Father?

      1. Champ your score is taken from only the 22 players your select on the field for the year..

        There is no captain and the budget is only 9 million as you do not have to select rookie Bench players.

    2. Thanks for the replies. It sounds like the type of comp I’ve tried to get my regular money league to run because after 30 trades we all go into the finals with basically the same team.

  9. LoEC cutoff update

    The gun coaches from last year are all leaving their applications to the last minute. The LoEC cutoff is currently around the 50k point mark.

    I’ve had 72 league applications so far.

    Applications are not guaranteed to be accepted after 5pm AEDT Friday Feb 10.

  19. Hi Motts , applied for spot in std league last week under name coopers home, could you also explain how SCT Group you registered today works. obviously this is my first go at SCT leagues etc.

    1. Got your application.

      The SCT Group enables everyone on the site to compete against one another. You join it through the Leagues tab.

      Last year, Catta VERY generously put up $500 for the person that came first in our Group on the condition they had “@ SCT” appended to their team name. Ratticus also very generously put up $100 for second under the same condition.

      I haven’t heard from Catta as to whether he’d be prepared to sponsor our Group again this year but Ratticus has already said he’ll be back with a greenback. So whack “@ SCT” at the end of your team name and join the Group today!

  20. LoEC Cutoff Update
    10 more applications received overnight – we’re now up to close to 140 overall. The cutoff for LoEC is now 50,978 points in 2016 or a ranking of 3,470.

    With DoubleD only one spot above the cut with 3 days to go its starting to look dicey!

  21. By the beard of Zeus, I have a LoEC cutoff update for you. This will be my last update before sending invitations out in the coming weeks. (They teach you that in SuperCoach website forum management school – it maintains the suspense.)

    The cutoff for LoEC entry has surpassed 51,000 points in 2016. Teamcustard now sits on the cusp with 51,009 and a ranking of 3,252.

    Don’t stop applying if you’re under that because we will be ranking our standard leagues as well. SCT1 will pick up exactly where LoEC3 finishes off. Don’t forget to include last year’s data when you send me your emails.

    DoubleD, right now you’re at first drop. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news buddy.

    1. Nice having the history feature. Haven’t dropped below 50,000 points sonce at least 2014.

      50,700 odd despite lacking internet access during much of August September due to Cape York trip.

      Hopefully that’s enough for a Std League.

  22. Hey Motts, happy for a spot in a standard league if possible. Just under 50K points last year.

    Love your work…….Bananas
