What Does AA, A, BB, B Mean?

9/27/2013

AA, A, BB and B are levels of play. The levels defined below can blend from one level to the next depending on how people choose to sign up and what levels end up fielding full divisions. For example, if a team signs up for Men’s B based on the description below and no other teams sign up, that team may choose to compete at a higher level thereby skewing the definitions.

Level definitions can also be skewed by the group of teams playing within a Region. For example, if there are 20 Co-Ed BB teams playing in a region, then there may be a split to move the top 6 to Co-Ed A to make room for more teams.

Level B – Consists of teams with a very basic understanding of the game and rules but few developed skills.

Level BB – Consists of teams with a solid knowledge of the game and rules. Skill levels range from Advanced Beginner to Proficient Veteran. All players understand rotational sequence, offensive concepts (i.e., 5-1, 6-2, etc.) and defensive positions but may be working to solidify those skills.

Level A – Consists of teams with a solid knowledge of the game and rules. Skill levels range from Advanced Intermediate to Experienced. All players understand rotational sequence, offensive concepts (i.e., 5-1, 6-2, etc.) and defensive positions and can apply them in competition. Game and player strategies are well understood (i.e., running offensive plays, identifying opponent weaknesses, reading opponents plays during volley, etc.) but may still be in refinement.

Level AA – Consists of teams with a superior knowledge of the game and rules. Skill levels range from Experienced to Professionally Trained Athletes. All players understand rotational sequence, offensive concepts (i.e., 5-1, 6-2, etc.) and defensive positions and can apply them in competition. Game and player strategies are well understood (i.e., running offensive plays, identifying opponent weaknesses, reading opponents plays during volley, etc.) and the game is run at a high tempo.
