Just about every Wednesday during the high school season, VolleyballMag.com recognizes a Dream Team of high school volleyball players who were standouts the week before.
Most weeks, the eight-girl Dream Team will consist of the following:
Setter, S/RS or RS
Players will be considered for Dream Team ONLY if they are nominated by their high school coaches using this link: https://volleyballmag.com/hs-player-of-the-week-submissions/. This week’s team includes three outsides because no defensive specialists were nominated.
Nominations going forward will be solicited by email to high school coaches only on our email list. To sign up, follow this link: https://volleyballmag.com/hs-email-sign-up/
Note to coaches and directors: while there is no science to how we choose members of our Dream Team, performing on bigger stages will give players an edge, as will nomination forms that describe with specificity how well a player performed the previous weekend.
