USAV Introduces National Rankings for Junior Club Teams
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Nov. 28, 2023) – USA Volleyball is excited to announce its new National Rankings System for junior club teams.
The USA Volleyball National Rankings System will use a variety of algorithms to rank girls and boys member club teams at USA Volleyball-sanctioned events. Rankings will be updated weekly.
“We are pleased to offer a new benefit to member clubs and sanctioned events,” said Jamie Davis, USA Volleyball President and CEO. “We have worked hard to make sure this ranking system adds excitement and cache for club teams. In moments, players and coaches can see how their club teams stack up against others across the country in their divisions.”
The Rankings System relies only on head-to-head match results and the relative strength of teams competing against each other.
Tracking results across the entire season and emphasizing quality wins over highly ranked opponents will produce a robust ranking that showcases the top teams across the country.
The system does not overreact to any single match outcome. A single upset victory alone is unlikely to dramatically alter the rankings. Teams can improve their rankings by winning consistently over time.
All USA Volleyball-sanctioned matches are valued equally in determining the rankings, whether from national tournaments, regional tournaments, local tournaments or other USA Volleyball-sanctioned play.
