please find the top approximately 140 17-year-old club volleyball teams in the
country as of the second week of January, 2020. The rankings are based on the
information we have received to date from clubs across the country as well as
input we have received from our 300-member strong Club Rankings Team (“CRT”).
The pre-season 18s rankings were released yesterday. The current plan is for the 16s rankings to be released tomorrow, with the 15s on Thursday.
Please note: these rankings are not the product of a computerized system. As you peruse the rankings, remember these things:
pre-season rankings are a prediction
of where teams will be at the end of the season not what has
happened to date.
rankings are for fun and for discussion and nothing else.
narratives include many but not all of the impact players for any given team. I
use submitted forms as the basis for the narratives and never guess.
4. We have been asking for team info since mid-November and have asked many
times. If clubs that should plainly be in the rankings – I won’t embarrass them
by naming them here – are not, it’s because the club did not come through with
a form, an informative email, a roster…anything…that would help me evaluate what
they look like for 2020. Look for these and other clubs in our 65-strong
Honorable Mention section.
I do want to add one more thing: if you
have the chance to see any of the teams ranked among the top 10 here, jump at
it! The top of this age group is as strong as I can recall.
That’s it for now! Thanks to everyone who helped get this ranking out in a
relatively short time frame. I could not have done it without you
