By flipping up the coin which side lands the selected team will go for the first throw.

How to count scores in the 801 darts
The dartboard has two rings. One is the outer ring and another one is the inner ring. The outer ring is counted as a double score. For example, if you hit 12 points of the outer ring it means 24 points. The inner ring is counted as a triple score. That means if you score 20 points in the inner ring it means you score 60 points, and there is the bullseye in the exact middle of the dartboard it is the innermost circle. It is for 50 points and the thin circle after the inner bullseye is for 25 points. The bullseye is counted as a double score because it is double of the 25 points.

And just like before you have to make this 17 points again in the next turn.
