Standings Page:

When you click on a League Division standing, a standings page will open to show the current standings for all teams at that time. After the season is complete, the Standings page will have a link to a printable page in PDF format. The link will open a new window with the complete listings of all pertinent statistics for a chosen Division:

 



Game Remarks: When you hover the cursor over a game, any details entered (such as the individual sets that make up a volleyball match) will be shown in a pop-up label, similar to Tool Tips.Smart Phone Abbreviated Standings

Full Sort Capabilities: The links at the top of each column allow you to sort the whole Grid by that column. Each time you click that link, the order will be reversed - Ascending to Descending to Ascending, etc. This is helpful if you want to compare teams or find the greatest Points For/Against, the highest Win/Loss ratio (to use to set the end-of-season Official Seed), the most games Won/Lost/Tied, etc.

 

Smart Phone Browser Access:

 The Standings pages are designed for a computer browser, on a computer with at least 800x600 resolution. However, you can access an abbreviated Standings page by entering the following address into your phone browser: http://nviac.com/stats/standings-m.php  (See picture at right) Use the drop-down list at the top to choose another team. If  your phone supports JavaScript, you can click on the headings (Teams, W, L, W/L, Seed) and sort the table by that column. This is handy if you want to see how the teams are ranked so far, by their Won/Lost records.

 

 

When you click on the  button at the top of the Statistics page, a page will be generated and downloaded to your computer, at a location of your choosing, in Adobe Reader Portable Document Format (PDF). You may then email the PDF file or print it to any printer. The PDF file is formatted as indicated in the next paragraph.

 

When you use the File-Print option in your Browser, the page, you'll get a page arranged for most efficient printing:

 

Notice that the Menu and Division Selection drop-down list are removed to print only the Division Statistics, and all of the Grids (see below). These reports also include the name and contact information for the Statistician.

[Back to Top] 

Head-to-Head Wins Grid:

 

The Head to Head Wins Against Each Opponent grid shows how many games each team has Won against their opponents. This is often used as a tie-breaker at the end of the season. While the Head to Head statistics can also be gleaned from the Standings Grid, this grid provides a much simpler summation for quick reference.

[Back to Top] 

Total Games Played Against Each Opponent Grid:

 

The Total Games Played Against Each Opponent grid provides an assessment for each team, to ensure that every team plays the minimum number of opponents for the season. The minimum percentage is specified by the League. If a team fails to play the minimum number of teams, the % Played column shows the actual percentage highlighted in RED. The % Played value can be specified in the Site Configuration screen.

All Games Played Listing: 

The All Games Played listing shows all games that have been played for this Division. All of these games are reflected in the preceding three Grids. This is a convenient spot for Athletic Directors to ensure that all of their teams’ games have been properly reflected in the Statistics.

For ease of reference, click on any of the column headings to sort by that column.  Shift click an additional column to sort by the first-selected column and the second-selected column. For example, Sort the Win column to sort by teams, then Shift click on the Date column to sort by date within the groups of teams.

 

See Remarks for any game in the fourth column (such as Volleyball sets that make up the match, or Forfeit indications).

The calendar showing below the Standings list is the current schedule as provided to the Statistician by all of the AD's at the beginning of the season.

Tournament Bracket:

The Tournament Bracket is published by the Tournament Director toward the end of the season. When all teams have completed their games, they will be assigned  their Official Seed ranking, which will be used to place them on the Tournament Bracket.
As you can see from the Tournament Bracket at the right, eight teams played the season and were ranked as shown. The typical matchup for eight teams, has Team 1 playing Team 8, Team 2 playing Team 7, Team 6 playing Team 3, and Team 5 playing Team 4.

The teams will be entered in Round 1 and, as the games are played, the scores may be entered and the winning team advanced to the next round. Final winners are shown along with the Best Godly Character award voted by all of the teams for the team exhibiting Godly character in their play during the season.

Each game is named (Game A, Game B, etc.). During tournament play, directions and game locations are included in the Remarks block at the bottom of the grid. For Game locations, specific game details (sites, courts, fields, times, etc.) will show in the space between the two competing teams as shown in the diagram to the left.

When the Tournament brackets are complete the bracket will be available as a printable file in PDF format.
