The TeamRank National Championship is a unique rankings setup that only includes team performance from the current season. It begins with events in August and ends with final events in July, at which point a new competition begins and the slate is again wiped clean. Each ranking is only for that August to July season.
Each list in the Players To Watch Regional Top 20 and National Top 100 rankings are updated monthly and therefore subject to change.
Players To Watch Regional Rankings and National Top 100 in 12 age groups are based on staff assimilation of data and feedback received from coaches and other observers around the country.
Players To Watch ranking and rating criteria explained.
We are currently working to finalize the 2014 through 2016 classes rather than showing partial lists. As always, you are welcome to let us know about players in those age groups.
In the Mid-Atlantic TeamRank update, six separate clubs hold the top spot in the Boys’ age groups, including Bethesda SC, Reston FC, Annandale BGC, Beach FC, Olney BGC and Baltimore Bays. For Girls’ teams, U15 Jefferson Cup champions SAC United are on top both regionally and nationally.
With the spring tournament season (and our continuing to add results from fall and winter events as part of our commitment), it will be interesting to see how the standings in each age group develop.
If you have an issue with the information in the Players To Watch or TeamRank rankings, particularly with factual data, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
