The State Championships Event Schedule can be found in the Downloadable Forms tab of the regional websites and in the Player Resources page under Get Started in the main APPL website. It identifies the day and approximate times the various divisions and flight skill levels will be playing. The specific matchups will be defined once the regional winners have been defined and will be seeded according to their games won/lost percentage.
All matches will be played at Dave White Regional Park in Casa Grande (same venue as last season).
The event will take place in two sessions:
Session 1 – Open Age Championships: March 25th & 26th
March 25th: All Women’s Open Age Flights and All Men’s Open Age Flights
March 26th: All Mixed Open Age Flights
Session 2 – Age Defined Championships: April 3rd, 4th & 5th
April 3rd: All Women’s 55+ Flights and Men’s 65+ 3.5 Flight and Men’s 65+ 4.0 Flight
April 4th: All Men’s 55+ Flights
April 5th: All Mixed 55+ Flights
Reminder: Previous emails have included this rule reminder but it is worth mentioning again.
Remember the Player Playoff Qualification Rule: This rule was new this year:
“In order to participate in a sub-flight playoff, players must have played in at least one complete APPL regular season match. In order to participate in a State Championship match, players must have played in at least two regular season matches or one regular season match and a sub-flight playoff.”
This rule will be strictly enforced. Any playoff or state championship games played by a player that does not meet the qualification rule will be defaulted.
More details will follow as we near the end of the season. In the meantime, if you have any questions please contact your League Coordinator.
