MAPL events have three (3) mixed age-level divisions* to allow for excellent inter-regional competition.
*Age divisions refer to USA Volleyball age designations.
**Only select 16s and 14s teams [usually 8-10 total per division] will be placed in the Black division and Blue division respectively. Placement in the 'higher' division is based on team performance as assessed by the MAPL Competition Committee.
