Former members[edit]

  • Inkster High School: Inkster joined the WWAC during the 2012-13 school year and played spring sports. However, before Inkster could start their first full season in the WWAC, their school district closed. This resulted in the high school closing which gave Inkster no choice but to withdraw from the conference.

Formation and Expansion[edit]

The WWAC was formed by eleven of the twelve teams listed above (exception of Clarenceville) after the Michigan Mega Conference disbanded in 2009. The league began play that same year. The league expanded in 2013 with the additions of Clarenceville, and until summer 2013, Inkster. Many rivalries from the Mega were carried over to the WWAC, including the rivalries from Dearborn and Dearborn Heights. Annual crossover games had also maintained the football rivalry between Garden City and Edsel Ford, until 2015, when division realignment forced the teams to put the game on hiatus.

Sports Supported[edit]

The WWAC supports Football, Basketball, Golf, Swimming, Cross-Country, Track, Soccer, Wrestling, Baseball, Softball and Tennis.
