REFEREE & SCORING TRAINING


REQUIREMENTS IN CEVA

As of the 2021-2022 season, the requirements for certified referees and scorekeepers on junior team rosters have changed.  Please see Section 8.6 of the Junior Girls' Handbook for more information. 

Teams defined as a 15s team or older are required to have 1 certified scorekeeper, 1 certified assistant scorekeeper, 1 certified R2, 1 certified adult R1, and 2 certified line judges per team.

Teams defined as a 14s team or younger are required to have 2 certified scorekeepers, 2 certified assistant scorekeepers, 2 certified R2s, 1 certified adult R1, and 4 certified line judges per team.

For all CEVA-sanctioned tournaments at the 12s level, teams are required to provide either a score-certified rostered adult or a score-certified junior player at least 15 years of age to help the table crew.  This is in addition to providing the required R1.  This individual can be a coach or older player from another team, and must be able to provide proof of membership and completion of eligibility requirements.

Teams who exhibit a low proficiency as a work team at a CEVA-sanctioned event may be reported to the office by their head officials (regardless of if they meet roster certification requirements).  These teams will be considered "on notice" and may be required to engage in additional training to increase their proficiency as work teams.  Teams who continue to exhibit a low proficiency after being placed on notice may be subject to fines or other punitive actions, in addition to further training requirements.

Occasionally, clubs make it a requirement for all team members to complete ref/score training.  Note that this is not a CEVA requirement, but individual clubs are free to have these requirements if they choose to do so.  CEVA will not prevent a player from practicing or playing simply because they aren't ref/score certified.  This would be done at the club level only.
