National Rankings

 

The formula used to calculate the National Rankings is as follows:

  • All players must have a Volley America # in order to receive pts and end of season prize money
  • Rankings are calculated using the total points earned from tournaments played using the following selection process:
    • Players earn points every time they play and make the playoffs:
      • 1st Place = 40 points
      • 2nd Place = 25 points
      • 3rd Place = 15 points
      • 5th Place = 10 points
      • 7th Place = 8 points
      • 9th Place = 5 points
      • All other = 1 point
    • All divisions receive bonus pts based on the # of teams in a division:
      • 1st place receives bonus pts equal to the # of teams in the division
      • 2nd place receives the same amount of bonus pts minus 2
      • 3rd place receives the same amount as 2nd place minus 3
      • 5th place receives the same amount as 3rd place minus 5
      • And so forth until you get to 0. This makes larger tournaments worth more than the weaker tournaments yet still does not penalize teams that win smaller events
    • The following multipliers are applied based on the division:
      • Open = 1,000
      • AA = 100
      • A = 10
      • B = 1
    • Add the top 5 finishes out of the last 10 tournaments played within the current season and the prior season. (1/1 of the previous year to the current date)
