From the WIAA -
We need every football score reported on Friday night to the WIAA office. Please call (715-344-8580)! Win or lose, In the tournament or not. All scores affect teams vying for qualification into the playing field.
1. Please remember to always call in your WIAA tournament scores. We are always waiting for a few schools to call in the score. Please call 715-344-8580 after Friday’s game and any tournament game!
2. First Half Points Allowed Form due by noon on Thursday, October 11.
3. Football Playoff Information Verification Form due by 2 p.m. on Friday, October 12.
4. Seeding Meeting Information is on the web site under tournament information. Coaches must login to see the materials in a black accordion box.
It is important that coaches be prepared for seeding meeting with all materials. Seeding meetings are where discussions on placement are to take place. Do not call the WIAA office if you are unhappy with a seed. Work it out at the meeting. A school may have more than one person present. However, only one person may speak for a school.
Following is our projected timeline for the release of football information on Friday and Saturday:
12 midnight - release tournament field of 224 - broken into 7 divisions.
1:30 a.m. - release 8-team groupings by division with seeding meeting host indicated
11 a.m. - All seeding meetings begin
1 p.m. - Deadline for seeding meeting hosts to submit completed bracket to WIAA (all 8 teams will have been seeded – highest seed will host if on approved site list — discuss day and time for game so that is included on the completed bracket when it is submitted by seed meeting host. We don’t want to have to track down day/time of game later.)
Officials assignments for football available on website.
Once we begin to receive the completed seeding meeting reports, we will compile the brackets and release the completed division bracket via our website (Sports > Football > Tournament Information) when a given division is complete.
