Officials Welcome Page
This year will have a new Rule Book, good for two seasons (2013-2015). There are several new rules as well as a revised score sheet. Please ensure you complete your training before your first tournament so you are up-to-date with the changes.
Two North Country Region officials recognized with top honors at the Opens Championship in Louisville, KY this past summer. Ed Richardson received the silver whistle award and Christina Fiebich the silver pen. These performance-based awards are given to the top new National referee and National scorer (respectively) during their first attendance at the Open Championships. If you haven’t already, please congratulate them. This is a great accomplishment!
On-line training, utilizing USA Volleyball Academy, will provide the base training for this season. It will be a goal to augment this initial training with feedback while officials are working at events, both at the Jr coaches/players level and at the Adult certified official’s level.
