Hype Nation kicked off the 2023 Volleyball season in Hoover, Alabama over the weekend with 95 teams competing representing 26 different clubs. Teams gathered at the SFM-managed Hoover Metropolitan Complex over the weekend and welcomed over 1,200 spectators. This tournament included 10-18 girls divisions and is the first of three tournaments Hype Nation will host in Hoover in 2023.

“Sending everyone a big THANK YOU for attending the inaugural Alabama Icebreaker this past weekend,” said Troy Helton, Hype Nation Partner. “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.
