(3) Volleyball VIDEO of the Week
The high school volleyball season is now in full swing. Below is a VIDEO of one of the most exciting games in California CIF Volleyball History.  It is the deciding 5th Game of the 2011 High School Girls Division 1 State Championship Match between Bay Area's Palo Alto High (coached by Dave Winn) and Marymount High (from Los Angeles)


Players often ask how to rate themselves on VBmatch's AA, A, BB and B scale.

The ratings correspond with the following skill levels:
B = average California high school JV player;
BB = average California high school Varsity player;
A = high caliber California high school Varsity player (e.g. can compete in state championships); a good College Club player; or an NCAA D2 or D3 player
AA = NCAA Division 1 player

Notice that I specified "California high school" as opposed to some other state. Of course, if you've never seen a California high school volleyball match, the above definitions may not help you. Fortunately, I posted a VIDEO LINK for a California high school match (above).

A player who can serve, pass, hit and defend at the same caliber and has the same ball control consistency as the players in the above video is deserving of an "A" rating.
