For the 2018-2019 Season, the NCGA Points Calendar will run from Oct. 1, 2018-Sept.30, 2019. The change will go into effect for all Player of the Year divisions: NCGA Player of the Year, NCGA Women's Player of the Year, NCGA Senior Player of the Year, NCGA Senior Women's Player of the Year and NCGA Super Senior Player of the Year. The change allows NCGA officials to select the Cup Match teams without having to create a separate points list. The NCGA Points Calendar traditionally has run from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30 of the following year. Jason Anthony (left) and Sabrina Iqbal won Player of the Year, and Women's Player of the Year honors, respectively, in 2017.
