How to Official's Guide

Online Training

Make an Impact

Officials are a huge part of our junior tournaments’ success. Safety is our top priority concerning working with junior athletes, and officials are another adult group that we make sure are considered safe before working for North Country Region. There is a process to becoming an official and it leads down to the podium of USA Volleyball, the National Governing Body, where opportunities are limitless. Officials embrace “Volleyball for Life” and they have the upper hand in making an impact on all junior athletes that come in contact with these adults who truly love to surround themselves in this sport for life.
