Officiating Zoom: For Players and Coaches to review before Saturday!
Click HERE to watch the zoom-clinic!
After you watch the zoom, if you also watch the modules and take the quizzes that have been placed into your Sports Engine Profile ACADEMY ENROLLMENTS then you're certified as a "Team Official" for 23-24!
Please use the drag-down menus above to access our PAID REFEREE pages and information.
Officials (referees and scorers) are central to our sport. You are appreciated!
Our members contribute to the overall officiating scene, in various roles:
Juniors: both as players keeping score or whistling, but also as paid "Junior Officials"
Coaches; the backbone of our daily operations, coaches take the stand or assist their teams at the score-tables 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!
MEMBERSHIP FOR EACH TYPE OF OFFICIAL:
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 team-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!"
Access the Academies through your SportsEngine account (see "How To" below)
ASSIGNMENTS: NEW THIS YEAR:
The RMR will manage referee assignments for the 2023-24 season through the TM2 assigning platform.
There, officials "register for events" just as a team would. Log in online at TM2, then navigate to the "Officials' Dashboard to "Register For Events." Being "accepted" into the event is your confirmation, and TM2 will display your work schedule at the event.
Many thanks to Gary Houghton for building the RMR referee assigning program years ago, before TM2, SportsEngine, or even Arbiter even existed. And many thanks to him for maintaining that platform for us for (decades)! THANKS GARY!
Online Uniform Approval portal
Time to order uniforms for your teams? Your jersey manufacturer should be able to provide you with mock-ups so that you can check out not only how the jersey looks, but also if it complies with USAV rules regarding number size, placement, and contrasting colors.
If you'd like to make double-sure that your uniform is "good to go" you can submit your artwork to the USAV Rules Interpreter for all-year, all-event approval HERE.
Play it safe, and enjoy "peace of mind" by using this simple tool!
Although this website page is otherwise dedicated to your "professional referee" interests, we do need to remind you that all adults in the RMR are SAFESPORT MANDATORY REPORTERS.
You will have learned what that means, during your annual Safesport training, but the article below gives you some reminders, and puts some basic materials at your fingertips!
IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!
USA Volleyball is required on an annual basis to communicate with all adult members the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy (MAAPP) and How to Report misconduct mechanisms.
