HYP Sand Volleyball League 

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! Participating in the Major Division will allow your team to play more games, get an opportunity to win a team trophy and a 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. Participating in the Minor Division will allow your team to play more games and plus you get an opportunity to win a team trophy!

 

  • ROOKIE DIVISION: Do you want to have fun? The Rookie Division is recommended for all athletes who simply are new to the area or individuals who want to go enjoy a recreational activity with others and desires less competitive competition. The division is open to teams with a very basic knowledge of the sport and rules, but few developed skills. (If the sport has game officials, they will assist teams on learning the rules of the sport throughout the season). If you simply want to play, socialize with friends, learn the sport, and you can care less about winning or losing then this is the division for you!
