What is The League?

“League” is defined as a group of sports clubs which play each other over a period for a championship. The League by Varsity All Star embodies this definition as a series of regular season events that will add up to crown overall season champions across all levels and age groups.

  • The League is a season-long points race that emphasizes the importance of competitions throughout the regular season
  • The League includes avenues for Youth, Junior & Senior teams
  • Each event will be assigned points based on the size of the competition
  • Team points are earned by placements at U.S events

What are the Divisions & Levels?

Eligible Divisions 

Division I Division II
Youth Youth
Junior Junior
Senior Senior
Coed Coed

 

What about the Levels? 

The League combines all levels within each division above. This means that teams in Levels 1-6 will go head-to-head with League points during the season.

How are points earned?

  1. Events are assigned point values pre-season and teams can build their event schedule with these in mind.
  2. Everyone is in The League! There is no minimum requirement, but The League winner will be calculated by combining a team’s five highest points earned during the regular season. Maximize your chances of success by competing at least five times at participating events.
  3. Follow along on The League Leaderboard for weekly updates on team standings and check out bi-weekly shows on Varsity TV starting later this year.

What do winners receive?

In total, 120 winners will be recognized from 1st – 3rd place across each region. One Champion will be crowned in each of the 5 regions across the 8 eligible divisions, meaning 40 champions will be awarded in total. Champions will win cash and prizes!
