The NJP Player Rater for 9/26 is below. The Player Rater is another “Look” at statistical performances of NJ Girl’s high school volleyball players. Last week we showed overall stats and a special “per class’ analysis. The Player Rater is formulaic and attempts to bring an apples to apples comparison of stats using per set statistics. We also factor in strength of schedule into this equation so weigh player strength. The total numbers seen in the ratings are insignificant but are an expression of a ratio compared to your peers.
In individual categories, we use a simple formula of stat/set times average opponent schedule strength. The “Overall” Rater weighs each category in a proprietary formula and then applies the average opponent schedule strength. We have used the Player Rater formula for overall contribution of any player and use it for our year end awards and recognition as well.
