Referee Training Symposiums

All Symposiums are open to all returning and new referees. Any new referees wanting to work will need to attend a Symposium before they will be assigned.

The Symposium is a two or three day event designed to give the official actual court/game experience while being mentored by our Training Team prior to sending them to your first match. We feel that although rules clinics are valuable tools, the on court game type setting is a good way to give newer officials the game experience they need prior to the start of the season.

The first part of the symposium will be in a classroom setting and will introduce the officials to the basics of the game of volleyball. The attendees will be given detailed information on subjects such as Court and Equipment Match Protocol (when to arrive, conducting warm-ups etc.), Officiating Mechanics (signal sequences, time out and substitution procedures etc.), Ball Handing (setting and other contract violations), and Scorekeeping.

After the classroom session, you will begin working as part of the officiating team. The Training Team will be nearby to answer any questions you may have. You will work with a veteran official and be debriefed after each match to help you improve before we send you out on your own.

The second and/or third days of the Symposium weekend you will be assigned to work on the court as the paid official (R1) for the court.
