Cali West is currently at the top of the ranking charts in women's darts in the United States. She has held this title for 3 consecutive years, and is in position to finish this year just as strong. She has been playing darts for 16 years, first starting out in her local league in Syracuse, New York.
Syracuse hosts one of the top tournaments on the darts circuit, and as such, she competed in one of the toughest tournaments in the country right away. As she had some success and turned the heads of several well-known players, she was encouraged to travel to more tournaments.
Each year she has expanded her tournament schedule, now traveling all over the US and Canada. Almost every weekend, she has her bags packed, ready for the next tournament, driving to most of them. Good thing she enjoys driving!
She has also traveled overseas, to England and Ireland. She has had the honor of representing the United States in World competition, first at the World Masters in England, then at the World Cup in 2011 in Ireland, and again at the World Cup in 2013 in Newfoundland, Canada. This year she will be representing the US at the World Cup for a third consecutive appearance in Turkey.
She attributes her success to lots of practice, and her competitive nature. She also takes every opportunity to continue learning and perfecting the game of darts, and in turn, feels she learns about herself as well.
Cali grew up on the south shore of Long Island, New York, and has lived in Syracuse for most of her adult life. She also enjoys other hobbies, such as writing, playing guitar and mountain biking... although there never seems to be enough free time for that!
