The ratings used in preparing these previews are my Estimated Dynamic NTRP Ratings. And for the purposes of comparing teams, I'm calculating the average of the top-8 players on each National's roster.
The highest top-8 average is 2.65 and the lowest is 2.31.
Flight 4 with Caribbean, Hawaii, Mid-Atlantic, and New England comprises the #2, #3, #5, and #16 rated teams.
Flight 2 has Eastern, Southern, Southwest, and Texas which includes the #4, #6, #8, and #11 teams.
Flight 1 has Florida, Midwest, Missouri Valley, Pacific Northwest, and Southern California which comprises the #1, #10, #12, #13, and #17 rated teams.
Last, flight 3 with Intermountain, Middle States, Northern, and Northern California compriases the #7, #9, #14, and #15 teams.
If you'd like more details on any of the flights, I can generate a flight report for any of the them that will show the average rating for the roster and the top-8 average.
Or if you want to see details about a team including each player's rating and a summary of their record and courts played on the team through each phase of the season, a team report is a great resource for your team or any opponent as a tool to scout them.
Contact me if you are interested in any reports.
Note: As always, average ratings for a team does not win a team match. Who plays in the match, the line-ups and how they match-up, and how a given player plays on that day are what determine who wins. So the highest rated teams using top-8 average may or may not win, but it is interesting to look at.
