2019 Far West Regional Information


FARWEST Regional Championships 2019 Wildcard Matrix - Boise


Arizona Boys 16U and Girls 12U will be granted a Wildcard entry to the Far West Regional Championships. That means the Winner of the Boys 16U and Girls 12U State Championship will advance as well as the Finalist (as the Wildcard). Note that if the Champion of the USYS Regional League Desert Conference also wins the Arizona State Cup, that team is going as the State Cup Champion and the Desert Conference spot is given to the DC 2nd place finisher. IF this were to occur for an age group with the wildcard such as the 16U, the Finalist of the Arizona State Cup would attend as the Wildcard. The 12U event is held in conjunction with the West President's Cup Regionals in Norco, CA. See the President's Cup web page for more information.
