AUSTIN- The University Interscholastic League Legislative Council met Tuesday to make decisions on proposed rule changes in UIL academics, athletics, music and policy.

Additionally, the Legislative Council passed an amendment for split divisions in the postseason for volleyball, basketball, soccer, softball and baseball.

This change to the current playoff structure in some sports would allow for split divisions in the postseason for 2A-6A volleyball, softball and baseball, 4A-6A soccer, and 1A-6A basketball. This change would create two state championship brackets for teams to advance through the postseason for these conferences in volleyball, softball, baseball, soccer and basketball.

This amendment would follow the format used for the current 6A football championship structure. All schools in the conference would remain in their assigned district per the 2024-26 alignment. The Standing Committee on Athletics moves that the Legislative Council pass this amendment, to be effective Aug. 1, 2024, if approved by the Commissioner of Education.
