Default Moving Players Up in Leagues

I am trying to come up with a reasonable way to force players to move up in league competition (and to allow them to move back down if the case should be), ratings are not an option for several reasons. How do other places do it?

Mt Airy Tuesday night singles used to have a rule that if you won 3 times they would move you up a division. Back then, there were only 3 divisions Pro, Adv and Rec and most of the time, there were at least 4 or 5 in each on a given night. They also only paid out cash for the Pros. The Nati would hand out funny money for adv and rec.

They made it a PDGA league a couple years ago and stopped going by the 3 wins rule.

Maybe you could add a rule that if someone didn't win for a set length of time(3months maybe? or 6?) in their new division they could drop back down but once again would face the 3 win rule.

Silly. We have 20-30 people per week with 3 regulars over 1000 rating and the vast majority of players under 900.

Something along these lines is what I am thinking but I would like to see it incorporate a comparison with scores in the next division up as well as simply winning in the lower division.

You could move up players if their scores in a lower division would have placed them in, say, the top 3rd of a higher division, a fixed number of times.

As a separate thought, a drop-down rule, allowing a player to drop down to a lower division, should be based on number of weeks played, not number of weeks passed. Otherwise, the guy who only shows up every month or two would easily earn a ticket to a lower division; the guy who shows up every week would have to lose a lot more for the same benefit. Besides, a drop-down rule shouldn't be based on not winning; it should be something like not finishing in the top 50% of the higher division.

So something like three wins with a score that would have cashed in a higher division prompts a move up. Then maybe the option to drop back down if they finish bottom half for six (or more) consecutive weeks in that higher division?

That is what I am thinking for moving up at this point. Moving down I was thinking maybe 3 consecutive weeks out of "cash" with scores which would not win lower division. (Cash line being top half)
