The University Interscholastic League (UIL) has recently approved a proposal to restructure the postseason formats for several sports, including basketball, soccer, volleyball, softball, and baseball. This change will see each classification divided into two divisions based on enrollment, similar to the current 6A football playoff format.

As a result of this new structure, two champions will be crowned in each classification. State tournaments may now be limited to only championship matches, potentially removing the regional quarterfinal round in basketball and soccer as well as the area round in volleyball, softball, and baseball.

The UIL has been considering these changes since at least October with the goal of promoting competitive equity across the state and providing more opportunities for member schools to win state championships. While some Dallas-area coaches have expressed support for the new format, others have voiced concerns that it could decrease the level of competition.

Despite some coaches being unaware of the proposal until recently, these changes have been in the works for several months. Stay tuned for updates on this evolving story.
