WDDOA is excited to introduce a new competition model and flight structure for the upcoming seasonal year which is now reflected in the WDDOA Fall 2016 Pre-Qualified List.

WDDOA Flight 1 - PRIME (Highest Level - Playing Neutral Site Model) 
WDDOA Flight 2 - CHALLENGER (Mid-Level - Choice of Neutral Site vs Home / Away Model) 
WDDOA Flight 3 - ALPHA (Entry Level - Playing Home / Away Model) 

The new WDDOA flight structure will focus on developing the most competitive and exciting soccer environment within Western District for players and parents...while giving the flexibility that is needed to the clubs and teams in order to create and shape the future of soccer in WDDOA both on and off the field. CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE WDDOA FALL 2016 PRE-QUALIFIED LIST

Please note: 

  • Due to the birth year mandate being implemented in 2016/2017, teams were automatically aged up 2 years in order to complete the list. However, each pre-qualified team will have the option to accept the 2 year age up OR only age up 1 year depending on the team/player composition. Further instructions / documents on how to accept and declare your teams' age group for 2016/2017 will be published soon.
  • For Fall 2016 there will still be a core requirement. The requirement of >50% will be calculated from the qualifying roster; Fall 2015 Roster for SRPL teams and Spring 2016 Roster for all other teams. However, it will be a "club core" requirement rather than a "team core" requirement. This means that core will be met by filling the team with >50% of players who were registered with the club (rostered to a USYS team) for the 2015/2016 seasonal year.
