Each athlete will need to complete officiating training this year if no training was completed last season. By following the given steps in order, each athlete will register for a training called Junior Player Scorer, Libero Tracker, and Line Judge Training that will certify each athlete with one badge that encompasses all three stated roles. First referee (R1) and second referee (R2) trainings are not required for junior players to complete but can be assigned by club director and/or coach.
Step 2: Access Webpoint by logging in. Request a Login to create your user name and password if first time logging into Webpoint.
Click Region Clinics options on the left side of the screen near the bottom of the options menu, then select Region Ref/Score Clinics (see image).
Once registered for the correct training, click the red USAV Academy button on the left side below options menu which will guide you to the proper courses needed to complete the training.
On Home page of your USAV Academy, run the system test to ensure computer is set-up and will run the training properly. Chrome tends to be the best platform to use for this particular training while Firefox works well for others (please stay away from Internet Explorer). Most importantly, you need a fast, stable internet connection so doing your training on the phone will most likely not work well overall.
On My Account page of your USAV Academy, begin watching courses by clicking go and watching each slide all the way through in order to get credit for each course.
Once all required courses are finished, a certificate will pop-up on the left side of My Account page where you will be able to print a certificate (see image). If a certificate does not pop-up, you have not completed the training and most likely have another course to complete until the very end.
Return to Webpoint and print your member card that will include all your certifications for the season by clicking Member Home on top left corner, then select Print Member Card (see image).
Additional Note: Please utilize the Help Desk within the USAV Academy for any issues while taking the courses. Please select “Report an Issue”, then select “Officiating Training” for the department and indicate “North Country” as your region and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
