We are very excited to announce, we are moving the dates of the WPCYO playoffs! Post season games will now be held on the weekends of February 23 & 24, and March 2 & 3. We’re finalizing the logistics, so for now please save the dates and share them with your coaches and families.
We have posted the number of eligible playoff teams, from each division, on the WPCYO website. For teams still in the hunt, we ask that all regular season games be played by the end of the regular season, on February 10th. Only games that determine tie-breakers or play-in games should be played the following week.
For years, the biggest concern amongst WPCYO Coordinators has been playing a full season, only to have some or all players miss the playoffs because they are on vacation. We hope that moving the start of the playoffs will allow families to enjoy their school break, and still participate in post season games.
Changing the dates will require a lot of additional moving parts, including more sites and staffing. In addition to changing the dates we’re looking at multiple sites, in both the Northern and Southern areas. We’re also working on adjusting the schedule, to avoid lengthy delays. We’ll be looking to all of you for your support and flexibility, especially in this first year, as we all work to make this major change.
We hope you’re as excited as we are about these changes, and are looking forward to seeing the positive impact on our playoffs!
