SPIKEFEST REGULATIONS AND RULES
Now is the time to get your team together for largest 3-on-3 and 5-on-5 grass volleyball tournament in the world!
Your team can be any height, weight, etc. but you must be at least 12 years of age or older. Enter your team in the appropriate level and gender division and then get ready to SPIKE, DIG, and ROLL!!!
Choosing the Appropriate Division
The player with the highest skill level determines a team’s level of play. A team member ranked as an “A” player who has “BB” ranked players on his team would register the team as an “A” team. No changes to level of play or division will be allowed on site. Sandbaggers go against the principles of Spikefest and offending players will be ejected from the tournament. Sandbagging is defined as a player who enters into a division below his or her ability.
Complaints regarding sandbaggers should be reported at the scoreboard to the Tournament Director.
The Spirit of Spikefest
The event is designed to offer a weekend of volleyball fun for players of all ages and abilities. Poor conduct, such as repeated arguing about calls, will result in ejection from the tournament. We are committed to ensuring the actions of a small few will not tarnish the experience for the greater majority. Sandbagging goes against the principles of Spikefest and offending players will be ejected from the tournament. Sandbagging is viewed by others as “a person who would beat up their little sister and brag to friends about it.” You don’t want everyone looking at you as “that” person do you? Complaints regarding sandbaggers should be reported at the scoreboard to the Tournament Director.
Spikefest reserves the right to ban any team or player from registering in their tournaments. Any team or a team with a banned player will be notified and must make the appropriate substitutions as per policy. if the entire team is banned entry fee will be returned.
