Nominations for the 2014 AVCA Awards will begin on Monday, November 24.
The All-Region teams will be specialized by position. This is due to the growing specialization of the game in which many student-athletes play exclusively in the front row or back row.
The amount of each position will include:
- 5 Outside/Opposite Hitters
- 3 Middle Blockers
- 2 Setters
- 1 Libero/Defensive Specialist
- 3 At-Large Selections
Rules and Notes
- Coaches cannot vote for their own players.
- Coaches must vote in order for their players to be considered for the All Region Team.
- Coaches must vote for a total of 14 players with a minimum amount of each position from the values above.
- The voting will take place online through a link provided on this page
- Regional Committees will remain intact to ensure the proper teams are named. Their main role is to review the votes and take action in the case of low voter turnout or obvious collusion.
- Vote totals will be made public once the Regional Teams are announced.
- The process for nominating players will remain the same
- NEW TO 2014: Athletes that receive the top six vote totals from each region will be automatically assigned to the All-Region team. In the event of a tie for the sixth automatic selection, the All-Region committee will determine who will receive the automatic selection.
