Division Breakdown:

  • MAJOR DIVISION: Do you have game? Do you like winning and competing against others with the same competitive athletic ability as you? The Major Division consists of teams with a superior knowledge of the sport and rules. The skill level ranges from an experienced minor to an advanced major level of play. For the most skilled, most experienced players with the ability and desire to compete hard, with good sportsmanship, and loves to win at the highest possible level is what best describes the Major Division! Individuals who have played collegiate athletics are recommended to play in the Major Division. Participating in the Major Division will allow your team to play more games, get an opportunity to win a team trophy and a team gift card of the sports sponsor or to a city bar within Harrisburg for your team to go celebrate!

 

    • MINOR DIVISION: Are you up for a bit of a challenge? The Minor Division consists of teams with a moderate knowledge of the sport and rules. The skill level may range from an experienced rookie to a proficient veteran athlete who has been playing in the sport for several years.
