Based on the sheer size of the WDL leagues, please note that our State Reps may not make it to all playoff games to speak to qualifying coaches. So all qualified teams who wish to compete at State must contact the State Tournament Director, Chase Gardiner, at email@example.com or 608-441-5310 x4.
Please follow this page for specific qualification standards updates and we'll be listing all qualifying teams on this page. If a team not listed feels that they should be and therefore a qualifier they must email firstname.lastname@example.org
