What's new for 2017
In 2017 we are expanding to a 24 team format that guarantees each team 3 matches in one of 3 tournament brackets (Gold, Silver, Bronze). Pool play and state rankings will determine which bracket each team will compete in (pool play format TBD). Each team will be paired up with a tyke, just like in 2016. We will also be moving the event to the Greater Columbus Convention Center on the same weekend as the NCAA Men's Volleyball Championships which are being held at the Ohio State University on May 4 & 6!

Our 2017 Tykes
We do this because we care! And if you have ever had to make a trip to the hospital with your little ones, you understand exactly how important it is that we give back. Spike for Tykes isn't about just 4 tykes, it's about a culture of giving back and helping others. These 4 tykes are here to help embody the giving back. They all have special stories, but they are not the only ones. Every donation made on behalf of one of these 4 tykes helps ensure another tyke out there can have their own special story to tell. Let's all work together and help Nationwide Children's Hospital ensure they can continue to provide the best possible care to every tyke they care for.
This event is only possible because of the support from our sponsors.
