CEVA Officials play a crucial role in the region's success. Besides officiating matches, CEVA counts on officials to keep tournaments on time, make sure teams meet USA Volleyball playing requirements and answer all sorts of rule questions. It can be a demanding job, but you'll have some fun too! Requirements to be a CEVA Official include, but are not limited to:
• Current membership with USA Volleyball, cleared USAV Background Screen, current USAV Safesport certification on file, and completion of a concussion training course (info here)
• Attend an orientation meeting and complete online coursework.
• First year officials must attend on-site training in December/January, at which time they will be observed as an R1 and Scorer (no payment)
If you're interested in joining this group, even if you don't meet every requirement above, fill out the interest form below, or contact CEVA Officials' Chair Marcia Costley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CEVA has a growing presence in beach and outdoor volleyball and with that comes a need for certified outdoor officials. If you're interested, please contact Greg Clark - CEVA Beach Officials' Chair - via e-mail.
