Notes:
  1. Best 6 finishes in last 365 days with points falling off after 365 days.
    1. “Best finishes” refers to the highest points received not the highest place: for example, a 5th place finish at a professional event awards more points and will be used in the ranking over a 1st at a CBVA event.
    2. Total ranking points will only decrease if they expire after 365 days.
    3. After 365 days points from a finish will expire and either be replaced by a lower finish or drop off completely if no other finish is available to replace it - this will only occur when an athlete does not have 6 finishes in the last 365 days.
    4. Ranking points will not decrease from playing in lower level tournaments.
  2. Points awarded at particular tournaments are based on the amount of prize money.
    1. FIVB tournaments are worth the most points followed by Professional domestic events and then followed by Sectional promoters (CBVA, EEVB, Dig the Beach, etc.)
    2. NORCECA, Junior and Youth World Championship, Pan Am and FIVB Challenger events are given points just below the professional events for International experience they provide
    3. A tournament’s points can be determined by looking at the amount of prize money each gender is receiving. For example a $150,000 tournament is a $75K level tournament in the point system since the purse is split equally for each gender and so 1st place will receive 200 points
  3. All tournaments need a minimum number of teams for there to be points awarded - 16 for professional events, 12 for Sectional promoters and anything AAA & below needs 8 teams.
  4. Point that are awarded are per person, not per team. For example a 1st place finish at a $150K tournament (split equally among both genders) will award each player 200 points.
