MWPA Releases Postseason Format

Updated: May 28, 2021

The Michigan Water Polo Association (MWPA) has released the 2021 Spring Postseason Format.

A Statement from the MWPA:

The MWPA is proud to announce that the postseason will be played out how it is every year. While we have to use more sites and more days than usual, we will finish with the same results as years past. This gives our student athletes the best and hopefully most normal possible experience in anything but normal times.

The MWPA would like to specifically thank Board Vice President Joey Sutherlin and Hudsonville's Ian Kobes for making this format possible. Joey controls East Kentwood's aquatic facility and Ian controls Hudsonville's. The two paired up so we can fit within the four teams per site rule in order to play out both of our tournaments to their fullest extent.

Players, coaches, athletic directors, parents, officials, and volunteer staff have endured a lot to make this season possible, and so the reward is to have some sense of normalcy as it pertains to our postseason. The MWPA wishes all competitors good luck and great health.


The Tournaments will include modified District and Regional quarterfinals and a dual-site state championship tournament, at which the state quarterfinals and semi-finals will be played on the first day of the State Tournament, with placement games and the State Championship played on day two.

A full breakdown of MWPA Procedures for postseason can be found for each tournament here.

NOTICE: MDHHS Policies have changed since this story was published. All individual school districts are in charge of implementing their own regulations as it pertains to COVID.
