U16 Academy playoff qualifiers almost set

Published: June 16, 2011

Here’s where we stand with just a few straggling games left to complete at the end of the regular season.

The USSF Development Academy season concludes with two major events. The first is the DA playoffs, held this year in Frisco, Texas June 24-28. Thirty-two teams qualify, the top two teams in each of 10 divisions (based on inter-divisional play) and then 12 wildcard teams (based on overall points per game). Seeding is based entirely on points per game. At the playoffs, the teams play in eight, four-team groups, with the winners of each advancing to the national finals held next month in Milwaukee.

So in the U16 age group, the picture of who is going to Dallas is basically set following last weekend’s matches.  Here’s a rundown of what the playoff picture looks like:

Division Qualifiers
