Qualifying for the State Championship

Each district is allocated a specific number of spots for each division. Boys’ spots are allocated primarily based on the number of participants in sub-district events. Girls’ spots are based on the average scores posted in sub-district play statewide. The highest finishers in each division at the District Championship win the spots allocated to the district. Any ties for the last spot in each division will playoff. If a boy player from that district cannot play at state, the first alternate will take his place. Starting on the Sunday before State, the vacancy will be filled from the host district (District six in 2018). In the case of girls, any qualifier who cannot play at State will be replaced from a statewide alternate pool, and be selected by the Executive Director based on average score.

The top five boys and girls on the preceding year’s points list will be given an exemption from qualifying at their District Championship to play in the 2018 State Championship. If the player so exempted elects to give up their exemption and play in their District Championship, the player then must qualify to earn a position in the State Championship. To use this exemption, the player must play in at least one WJGA sub-district event during the 2018 WJGA season and the player must notify the Executive Director by July 4, 2018.
