National Club Rankings

2020 Pre-Season 18s National Club Rankings

please find the top 130 18-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”).

current plan is for the 17s rankings to be released tomorrow, 16s on Wednesday
and 15s on Thursday.

note: these rankings are not
the product of a computerized system. As you peruse the rankings, remember
these things:

1. The
pre-season rankings are a prediction
of where teams will be at the end of the season not what has
happened to date.

2. The
rankings are for fun and for discussion and nothing else.

3. The
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 55-strong
Honorable Mention section. Note that some strong 17s last year might not field
18s teams in 2020. Perhaps that’s why there have been no responses to some of
my queries…

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 all of you!

    John, that is what I assumed since the now TAV 18 Blue was the 17 USA USAV National Champions. Sad that TAV didn’t submit a form for a team that was strong for them. Still a team, the same roster, playing bigger and better…girls have set themselves a high bar to continue to reach! Lost only 1 match to TAV Black at the most recent NT ranking tournament. Finished 34th at Triple Crown last season, ready to see where we land this year! Thanks for your work, I actually did read the opening comments to the article so I wasn’t blaming you!! 🙂
