The girls G06-G02 ratings are up on the public blog.

http://lastplanetranking.blogspot.com/p/ratings.html

Take a look and send me corrections at the LP gmail or PM me on talking-soccer. If you don't see a team, try the 'All teams' table. That has the 'mystery' teams that I wasn't able to place. 'Team resolver' shows how I assigned tourney names to LP names.

I've had a post up on the WPS forum with the draft ranks since early Sept, so if you are looking for links to that in the future, go there. This year took awhile since I purged all the data pre-June 2016 due to birth year switch.

The Match Predictor widget in the left navbar lets you get a match prediction based on the model.

FAQs:
Why 'rank' little kids? So league and tournament directors can create league and tournament brackets with similar strength teams. Also helps teams figure out how strong they are so they can chose good tournament levels.

What goes into this strength rating model? Just a unique id for each team (home and away) and goals scored. That's it. You can read about the model being used on the blog under the FAQ in the left navbar.

Rankings should not happen prior to high school. Ranking little kids is silly.

To make tournament brackets, you have to estimate team strength one way or another. The LP ranks puts match data through an algorithm to estimate strength and puts a number to the estimated strength. You can click the 'team' heading to get the teams listed alphabetically instead of by strength estimate.

Sorry your little Suzie's team isn't ranked #1 like you thought it should be. Really, though, #100 is just as good. Really.

The girls G06-G00 ratings have been updated with last of league games and OYS U11-U14 Founders and Presidents Cup. I've extended to G00 but those tables won't stabilize until 4-5 RCL, OYS and PSPL league games come in for G01 & G00. That won't happen until mid-Feb. Also I have yet to add in the out-of-state tournaments for G00 (like Surf), so many of the top teams don't have 7 games yet and don't appear on the main tables.

See my response earlier:

FAQs:

For a big regional tournament with teams coming in from all over the PNW and some teams playing up, is is really hard to figure out good brackets. Some kind of 'strength rating' algorithm is one way to do that based on data from games played---rather than guessing or simple 'name recognition'.
