The 2018 NWLA Tournament has concluded, and planning has begun for 2019. After a short sabbatical, the Organizing Committee has gotten together and finalized a few things for 2019:
- The 2019 NWLA Tournament will take place July 12-14, 2019, at Wakefield Park in Morenci, MI.
- There will not be a regional round this year. In it’s place, the NWLA National Tournament will feature 20 teams in 2019! The 13 qualifiers from 2018 will be automatically included in the field, and then 7 other applicants will be selected from the field. A new format will be released in the near future, but it will feature elimination after Pool Play. Stay tuned for more on this.
- The 2019 NWLA Tournament will be accepting applications from fall and winter leagues! As long as your league starts after the end of the last NWLA Tournament, you’ll be eligible for the next year’s Tournament. NOTE: If you have a fall season and a spring/summer season, you won’t be able to use both for eligibility. You can decide which one you’d like to use, and all eligibility will be determined from that season.
- The NWLA Tournament Rulebook will be getting a thorough inspection and revision for 2019.
- The NWLA Tournament website will be getting a full redesign, which will be operational in the near future.
That’s all for now. Check back soon for the 2019 Format release!
