UIL approves proposal to implement major changes to playoff format for basketball and other sports

High school sports in Texas are set to undergo a major transformation next school year, as the University Interscholastic League (UIL) has approved a proposal to restructure the playoffs for various sports. The new format will see each classification split into two divisions, similar to the current 6A football postseason. This will result in two champions being crowned in each classification, based on enrollment.

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. Some Dallas-area coaches have expressed support for the new format, while others have voiced concerns that it could diminish the level of competition.

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