Choosing the Appropriate Division/What level should I enter?
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 Championship desk to the Tournament Director.
Below are the guidelines for the appropriate level to enter your team and avoid sandbagging. If your team breaks these guidelines and you are playing in a level that is truly below your ability… you are a SANDBAGGER (AKA the lowest form of creature on the Volleyball planet, a person who is a 6th grader and beats up a kindergartener and feels good about it).

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.
Spikefest reserves the right to ban any team or player from registering in our 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.
