Pro Division

Why the Pro Division?

The 2019 Spikeball™ Roundnet National Championship will feature a Pro Division made up of the best of the best Premier teams. Only 16 teams will qualify for the Pro Division.

Grand Slam events with at least 16 premier teams will have a Pro Division for the top 8 teams.

This shift makes the season as a whole and the Regional Championships more important. It rewards teams who get results throughout the season and turns the Regional Championships into high-stakes events by making them true Nationals qualifiers.

Having a division of 16 top teams at Nationals allows for better coverage of games, the flexibility of structure, and helps ensure fair matchups. It also makes for a more interesting Premier Division by allowing us to focus on teams and matchups that don’t always get featured. Check out the format here.

How does a team qualify for the Pro Division?

The top two teams from each Regional Championship will earn a spot. If a team does not accept their bid from regionals, it will fall to the next highest placing team. Remaining spots will be determined by taking the sum of the top 5 Premier Points earned at sanctioned events (without depreciation). Ties will be broken by cumulative season points. More info on points can be found here. The last day for points to count toward a team's total is September 14. All teams must officially accept their bids by Friday, September 20th.
