  • How to choose a division:
    • Stonewall Sports is committed to making sure that all players are able to enjoy the National Tournament regardless of skill level.
    • Competitive division (teams with mostly players rated BB to AA): If your team is confident in your volleyball skills and you want a chance to test your serves, sets, and spikes, this is the league for you. The competitive division is best suited for teams and players who have experience playing indoor volleyball and are well-versed in the rules and fundamentals of the sport. 
    • Social division (teams with mostly players rated Recreational to B): If all or several of your team’s players are newer to volleyball and still working on building fundamental skills, this is the league for you. The social division is suited for teams and players who are still learning the sport but are excited to participate in the tournament and have fun. Teams in this division may have the occasional flub serve and the odd fault here or there, but that’s OK. This is no judgment zone!
