Leading The League: Six Programs Finding Early Success

We've been counting down the days and the time is finally here! The leaderboard for The League Standings has officially launched! 

Fans, athletes, and coaches can now browse through The League standings to find out where they stack up nationally or against other teams within their region.

Teams are battling it out each weekend to secure top points to The League, but as we kick off 2023, six programs are finding some early success that's worth recognizing.

Why are these teams looking so strong in The League standings you ask? These are programs that historically love to compete early in the season and they've already competed at multiple events offering 400-600 points to division champions. If your program stacks the back half of its competition season with events, you've still got time to catch up! Stay tuned to Varsity TV each week to find out where your gym stands within The League!
