Check out our recap from 2022!

Hype Nation kicked off the 2022 Volleyball season in Hoover, Alabama over the weekend with 70 teams competing. Teams gathered at the SFM-managed Hoover Metropolitan Complex over the weekend and welcomed over 1,200 spectators. This tournament included 12-18 girls divisions and is the first of three tournaments Hype Nation will host in Hoover in 2022.

“Sending everyone a big THANK YOU for attending the inaugural Alabama Icebreaker this past weekend,” said Troy Helton, Hype Nation Partner. “We had 16 different clubs representing several states… and just in our first year! I think we laid a great foundation for the future. We can’t wait to see this event grow each year.”

Hype Nation would like to extend a special thank you and shout out to two of our event sponsors. Mikasa for providing the tournament balls for all games and 431 Sports who provided all of the champion medals. Without the support of our sponsors we wouldn’t be given the opportunity to work with other exceptional industry partners!

For teams or clubs interested in attending the second annual Alabama icebreaker tournament, save the date for next year’s event currently scheduled for January 7-8, 2023.
