Officiating Training - Due Jan 5th

Hi Everyone!

The officiating “clinics” are now open for completion! Every player needs to complete all of the “Junior Player” trainings before January 5th and email their coach each certificate. Our club believes it is very important for every player to be able to perform every officiating task as it makes them a more well-rounded volleyball player. Therefore, all players need to complete the following modules:

  • Junior Player Scorer, Libero Tracker, and Line Judge Training
  • Junior Player Second Referee (R2) Training ONLY
  • Junior Player First Referee (R1) Training ONLY

The North Country Region does a great job walking through each step of this process and can be found when you click here. Each team/coaching pair may have additional training requirements or suggestions which they should communicate with you.

Please reach out with any questions you or your players have! Thank you!
