WIAA Winter State Tournament Schedule

WIAA Winter State Tournaments are officially here! Find out dates and times below.

As proud sponsors of the WIAA, we are excited for the upcoming State Tournaments. We look forward to watching the athletes compete and their communities show support during the big game or event.  

We ask whether you are a player, coach, parents or fan that you be the true champion. We believe there’s something more important than just winning or losing a tournament. We believe that the team, school, and fans who support their athletes with dignity and class are the true champions. That’s why we’ve proudly sponsored the WIAA/Rural Mutual Insurance Sportsmanship Award for more than 50 years.

What is the WIAA /Rural Mutual Sportsmanship Award?  

The Sportsmanship Award recognizes the entire community for their conduct and appreciation for good sportsmanship – not just the athletes and coaches – but their fans and community and how they present themselves at state tournament events.  

All schools are eligible for the award, regardless of the number of games played. The WIAA will also give honorable mention recognition to schools under consideration for the top award. 

Judging will be done by game officials, scoring personnel, WIAA tournament management, security personnel, parking personnel, hotel personnel, and regional and sectional tournament managers. 

Judges will evaluate and rate the cheerleaders, spectator sections (students and adults), coaches, players, etc., of each school during the total tournament. The judging criteria includes evaluations in 6 categories.
