TIME CRITICAL DEADLINE - midnight SUNDAY, JULY 7, 2019
Teams are required to review their team placement for accuracy. Any questions or concerns, please submit an Alignment Concerns Form (scroll down) IMMEDIATELY, but no later than Sunday, July 7, 2019 by midnight.
Most alignment issues are fixed BEFORE the final Alignment meeting. DO NOT wait until Tuesday to bring an issue to our attention.
Final alignment will be held at the UYSA State Offices on Tuesday, July 9th at 6 pm. Individual teams do NOT have to attend. Tracy Proulx, Emily Frandsen & Michelle Wixom will be representing all SWAT and MVU Teams.
Note: Make sure you look at the DIVISION you are in AND the TEAMS you are slated to play against. After all it's about the competition not the label of the division. Teams may Rolexed up or down because of the number of teams returning. It is important to evaluate WHO you are playing against rather than the name of the division.
NOTE: All PREMIER and all 2005 (U15) TEAMS ARE YEAR ROUND, they will not be realigned between the Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 seasons. D1 teams will not promote between fall and spring, but 1st Place of Fall 2019 and 1st and 2nd place of Spring 2020 will be promoted at the beginning of Fall 2020 seasonal year.
PROBLEMS OR CONCERNS ???
SUBMIT A PRE-ALGINMENT CONCERNS FORM
Let us know if you have concerns, especially if you are placed TOO HIGH. In addition, if based on the alignment flow above you are NOT in the division you expected to be in and there is an obvious mistake, please let us know immediately. If you "feel" like your team should be moved to a higher division, let us know. However, the alignment rules are not really subjective or discretionary. Moving teams up just because you think they are better than their state record indicates usually falls on deaf ears. However, if you feel like in the movement of teams that your team is significantly better than the teams that have been left in your bracket, let us know. Provide very specific, fact based data on why you feel this way. We will do our best to advocate on your behalf. Time is of the essence. Any comments received after Sunday, July 7th will most likely not be considered. Essentially we have 24 hours to advocate on your behalf before Final Alignment. We need the information by July 7th to do so.
