2022 NAIA Men's Volleyball Postseason Coaches Top 15 Poll

2022 NAIA Men's Volleyball Postseason Coaches Top 15 Poll

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Grand View (Iowa) remains at No. 1 in the postseason edition of the 2022 NAIA Men's Volleyball Coaches' Top 15 Poll after winning its second consecutive national title. 

Poll Methodology

  • The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences and Unaffiliated Groups.
  • The Top 15 is determined by a points system based on how each voter ranks the best teams. A team receives 12 points for each first-place vote, 11 for second place and so on through the list.
  • The highest and lowest ranking for each team (a non-rating is considered a low rating) is removed and the team's ranking will be recalculated with an additional point added to each team for every ballot (including discounted ballots) that the teams appear on.
  • Teams that receive only one point on the ballot are not considered "receiving votes"
