We will include some volleyball highlights in our daily roundups when space and time permits.

 

ALL PARENTS:

Volley talk is a free web site on which fans coaches, players and others interested in volleyball post questions and seek comments on many subjects.
On the current list of subjects talked about is :
THE CONCEPT OF GUARANTEED COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS.
I urge you to read the offering from a Commentator called DUMAS on page 3 of the thread.

You owe it to yourself and your child to read and understand the immense misunderstanding about collegiate scholarships.
PLEASE JOIN A CLUB THAT TEACHES, AND INSTRUCTS ON THE WAYS OF PLAYING THE GAME NOT WHAT CANNOT BE PROMISED.

Power Rankings

District One Volleyball Power Ranking Process

Here is a step by step description of the ranking process:

1. Only best of 5 matches are to be included; abbreviated matches, such as those played in tournaments, are to be excluded.

2. Only best of 5 matches with PIAA schools are to be included ; matches with non-PIAA schools are to be excluded.

3. District One teams that play matches with PIAA teams that are outside of District One, are responsible for obtaining end of season win/loss records of those opponents to have them included in the ranking calculation.

4. The ranking calculation weighs two factors; a team’s season win/loss record, and the pre-district playoff win/loss records of that team’s PIAA opponents (as defined in steps 1-3).

5. An index will be calculated  using  55% of a team’s own win/loss record (% matches won/total matches played), added to 45%  of the combined win/loss records of its opponents.  This formula is designed to reward teams that play competitive schedules.

6. Each District One team will be ranked for district playoffs using the 55/45 index, with the team with the highest total index ranked first, the team with the second highest index ranked second, and so on until all available seeds are determined.

 

In Addition to reporting your score to the local media and the District tabulator please take a minute and add your scores to the Automated Rankings results site.  Click here to take you there.

It's very easy to do, just make sure you enter the correct date, home and away teams.  This will give us a more accurate picture of the results for ranking purposes.

Thank you!
