REFEREE & SCORING TRAINING

CURRENT STATUS

Junior athletes have had referee and scoring training loaded into their accounts automatically.  Please see instructions on the right side of this page for how to access that training.

"The Whole Shebang" modules are NOT region-required.  They contain all courses available from USAV and are available to all members.  CEVA members do not have to complete these modules as part of our region's certification requirements. 


TOURNAMENT WORK TEAMS

Please consult the Power League page for the latest information about what work team requirements will be in Power League..

We recommend teams still meet the roster certification requirements outlined above even if they're not going to be serving as work teams due to restrictions.

Teams traveling outside the region for events must be able to show proficiency as traditional work teams when they attend those events.  This includes familiarity with the USAV scoresheet and officiating procedures.  While these certifications may not be required by the tournament host, teams must still be able to fulfill their duties in a competent manner.  Remember this may include coaches serving as R2's.

REQUIREMENTS IN CEVA

The requirements for certified referees and scorekeepers on junior team rosters have changed for the 2020-2021 season.  Please see Section 8.6 of the Junior Girls' Handbook for more information.  A brief outline is presented below, and will be in effect when work teams are allowed into facilities:

Teams defined as a 15s team or older (J5, J6, J7, J8) 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 (J0, J1, J2, J3, J4), 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.
