What does it mean to be Elite?

Becoming Spikeball Elite is one of the greatest achievements a team can accomplish in the sport of roundnet. Being Spikeball Elite means you are sponsored by Spikeball Inc, earn lucrative prizes, and gain eternal fame. Eligibility is determined by a team's total points accumulated from their top five tournament finishes compared to other teams throughout the season. Each year only 8 men's teams and 4 women's teams make the cut.

Women

Jenna Coleman & Julie Hasleton

Region: Midwest

Style: Fun

Bio: Like Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, we have a saucy long distance partnership. We don't let this get in the way though of playing though. The first time we hung out at the 2016 spring ambassador tournament in St.Louis we just clicked, it was basically love at first site when we realized we had matching outfits at the afterparty. After a night full of dancing and steak and shake, we decided to team up for the Flurry as team Jwins and took 1st place. After this win and an incident with battery powered Christmas lights, we decided take our relationship to the next level and become teammates for the 2017 season. Snapchat lets us check in everyday with each other even though we are miles apart and we travel to as many tournaments as we can and use the precious time actually playing together to work on our game. Team Moxie may be far in miles, but we are always close in heart.

Region: East

Style: Consistency

Bio: Ogres Heroes (originally Bec & Alli) was established in 2013. Our team dynamic was probably improved by sharing a room for 2 years in college. We have an embarrassing track record of getting knocked out of tournaments by boys less than half our age. To date, we have played in 28 tournaments together, and are always looking for the next one. We love to travel, compete and play the game.

Region: Midwest

Style: Fierce

Bio: We are double second cousins and come from an Amish heritage. We attended the same high school and were college apartment mates. Not only are we Spikeball teammates and cousins, but we have also become best friends through all of the years of school and life we have done together. We both love pretty much any sport we can play and love to compete, which makes it easy to play as a team. While our #1 goal is to have fun and enjoy the game, we both push each other to compete at the highest level we can and never settle for less.

Men

Peter Jon Showalter & Tyler Cisek

Region: Midwest/East

Style: Offensive based, serving

Bio: We started off as “moist” when we beat Chico Spikes after meeting each other the day before. Since then we’ve been super close friends while always goofing around, but play with a deep focus during tournaments. We are the National Champions and are looking to repeat this year! We love to have fun, meet new people, and play all kinds of sports!

Anthony Rentsch & Daniel McPortland

Region: East

Style: Dark Horse

Bio: Daniel and Anthony (better known as Dan and Tony) met at UMass Amherst in 2015 and have played together as a part of Spicy Roundnet Club ever since, but decided to team up for 2017 East Regionals. Tony had a handful of solid finishes as a part of Spicy Dirt, including a top 4 finish at 2015 East Regionals, while Dan was one of the most regular (and best) mashup players in the country. You can find them at tournaments these days by following the oohs and aahs of people watching Dan's serves; by locating the team flying around the net on defense looking for touches; or by looking for the two players who roll up the sleeves of their short sleeve jerseys to their shoulders before every point, to the point where you wonder why they don't just wear sleeveless jerseys.

Region: West

Bio: We started playing Roundnet because we enjoy competition, and then it turned out we were really good. Our above average athleticism gives us an advantage in every aspect of Roundnet. Defense is primarily our focus as teams that can’t play defense cannot be top contenders.

Bio: Anchored LI is anchored in Christ, anchored on Long Island, and anchored to our wives. We aim to serve God in everything we do while in competition with good sportsmanship, encouragement, and always aspiring to play to the best of our abilities. We are both Long Islanders through the through and love representing our home in our team name. Last but not least, we are committed to our wives and families. All this said, we are two guys who love sports, competition, and roundnet. Say hi if you see us around at tournaments and follow our 2018 season on our Instagram (@anchored_li_spikeball)!

Eric Zishka & Harding Brumby

Region: East/Southeast

Style: Endurance

Bio: Our history could be called "A Tale of Two Seasons". We officially got together in 2016, but that year contained more meltdowns than milestones, more hat throws than high finishes. Still, we decided to give it another shot in 2017 and with further training and an improved mindset, our results rebounded. We scored a W in Montreal, 2nd in Gulf Shores, Charlotte and Chicago (GS), 3rd in Baltimore and 4th in Philadelphia to earn Spikeball Elite status. Although we never generated a lot of hype or highlight reels, our 2017 results showed that solid communication, high-percentage play, determination and intra-team support can lead to success at the highest levels of roundnet.
