Division Levels for Tournaments

Grassroots Tournaments offer different playing levels so everyone can feel comfortable competing! It's important to review and understand the divisions before signing up. 

BB: Lowest competition level we offer, not much tournament experience, more of a casual player or newer to the sport. 

A: Intermediate,  some advanced skills. Common level for people who play pretty often but who maybe didn't play on an organized team or have advanced coaching. Familiar with tournament play. Hands will be called at this level and above. 

AA: Advanced, experienced and active tournament player, often played college or club teams, with lots of coaching/ training in the past or present. Jump serves, outdoor hand setting, fast-paced attack, and ball placement are likely from both players.

Open: Highest level, very very experienced player. Compete for money. Players in this division have advanced skills in all areas (swing hard, good defense, blocking, jump serves, hand setting, running plays, etc.)
