SHEBOYGAN — When Sheboygan County schools take the football field this spring, they will be one of 20 schools in the newly formed Fox Valley Classic Football Conference.

The conference was announced late Thursday to provide a regular season and playoff season format for the schools of the Fox River Classic Conference, Fox Valley Association and Wisconsin Valley Conference.

What this means for your school's team

The 20 schools have been divided into four groups based on enrollment and past success to ensure unique and competitive matchups while also maintaining traditional rivalries. 

  • Group A: Bay Port, Fond du Lac, Green Bay Preble, Neenah and Stevens Point.
  • Group B: Appleton East, Appleton North, Ashwaubenon, Kimberly and Pulaski.
  • Group C: Appleton West, De Pere, Green Bay Southwest, Manitowoc and Oshkosh West.
  • Group D: Green Bay East, Green Bay West, Oshkosh North, Sheboygan North and Sheboygan South.

Regular season: Teams will each play five regular season games, facing each team in its group and one crossover. Practices will begin March 8 with the first games slated for Friday, March 26.

Playoffs: The playoffs will be in a two-game format on April 30 and May 7. The top two teams from Groups A and B will compete in a four-team playoff, as will the top two teams from Groups C and D. Semifinals will be followed by consolation and championship games.

The third and fourth placed teams will form another four-team bracket and follow the same format.
