THE WDDOA FALL 2021 U12-U19 PRE-QUALIFIED LIST IS NOW AVAILABLE.

WDDOA is committed to providing a league structure through a promotion/relegation system that will place teams in the appropriate level of play, in order to promote the highest level of player development. 

WDDOA has developed a tiered approach to bring group sizes and competition levels back into balance. Looking ahead, the focus will continue to be on standardizing bracket numbers for the 2021-2022 seasonal year and beyond which will enable us to work towards providing an equal number of competitive games to all teams. 

What does this look like for your team? Promotion/Relegation will be achieved in a more upward motion: no more than 2 teams relegated to a lower flight but more than 2 teams will possibly promote in order to even out the brackets and create parity in the number of games among the teams in the same group. 

Seeding: Teams were seeded into the WDDOA Fall 2021 Pre-Qualified List based on Spring 2021 finish. 

Should you have any questions about the seeding on this list, please have your club DOC contact WDDOA for clarification.

Core Requirement: The requirement of >50% will be calculated from the qualifying roster; Fall 2020 for Frontier / SCL teams that qualified during the Fall season and Final Spring 2021 Roster for all other teams participating in a WDDOA flight. However, it will be a "club" core requirement rather than a "team" core requirement. This means that core will be met by filling the teams with >50% of players who were registered with the club (rostered to a USYS team for the 2020-2021 seasonal year. 

SO WHAT DO YOU DO IF...

You  don't see your team name listed on the pre-qualified list
You have a new U12-U19 team that wants to participate in WDDOA
You have a pre-qualified team that is not able to return club core
You have a pre-qualified team that is returning team core BUT is changing clubs
 
You should consult with your DOC and/or Club Registrar to have them fill out a Request for Consideration (RFC) form. RFC forms will be available online starting  Monday, June 7, 2021.
