Officials (referees and scorers) are central to our sport; you are appreciated! Many of our members contribute to the overall officiating scene, including:
Juniors: both as players keeping score or whistling, but also as paid " Junior Officials"
Coaches: the backbone of our daily operations, our coaches take the stand at most events
Professional Adult Officials: our ladies and lads in blue carry the heavy load, whistling at our largest events, in our top divisions, and most often, at the end of each day... Crunch Time!
The 2022-23 USA-Volleyball season will "officially" (see what I did there?) open on September 1st.
Juniors and Coaches will join through their clubs, by receiving specific invitation links with which they enter the registration process. They will certify or re-certify as officials, through online or in-person "training clinics."
Paid Junior Officials join the RMR through their clubs, then attend classes with the professional-refs...
Professional Officials are required to attend in-person classes where they receive direct instruction regarding both the rules of the game and also regarding the ins and outs of whistling for pay here in the RMR. Our professional adult officials enter the member-registration process through a special invitation link that will be provided directly from the RMR office in early September.
Everyone ends up with a member profile at SportsEngine. There, they can manage their profile (contact information, etc)
Adult officials can also use their profile to access "safety requirements" such as Background Screening (B/G) and the online SafeSport (SS) Course.
The LEARNING ACADEMY is hosted by USAV and is used for several training purposes. All types of officials use the Academy to access their required course work, but it's also a great resource for general learning!"
