We thought it would be an appropriate time to drop our 16s National Club Rankings, just before the start of the 16 Open Division at AAU Nationals and prior to the start of USAV Nationals. Below you will find the top 50 teams in the nation in the 16's Division (at least in our opinion), as well as those teams just on the cusp leading up to AAU and USAV Nationals.
It's important to understand that these rankings revolve around each team's full body of work throughout the season, including qualifier/large tournament finishes, the number of tournaments played, and the depth and talent of the roster.
This year, we'll be ranking fewer teams than last as high school volleyball may have overlapped in some states, and not everyone had the chance to play a full national schedule. Things have constantly changed, and we've done our best to adapt! We've ranked 50 teams. The top 25 have received a short write-up. The rest include key finishes and accolades throughout the season.
Though you may or may not agree with the rankings, please understand that they hold no bearing on your self-worth or that of your child and her team. Kindly keep all unhelpful and negative comments to a minimum and send all corrections via email to Jimmy Pompeo (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Without further ado, we give you the pre-Nationals edition of the 2021 16's National Club Rankings. Thank you to all those coaches who have offered input and insight surrounding their teams.
