Ref and Scorer Certification 2016-17
All referee and scorer certification is done online beginning October 12, 2016. Coaches and players must complete certification before their first tournament. CEVA/USA Vollleyball members need to register for training through USA Volleyball Webpoint (membership account). Step-by-step directions are included below with a screen shot to guide you.
How to Get Certified...
Once logged in, see left hand side of the screen, select tab called "Region Ref/Score Clinics" located under "Region Clinics."
Choose the appropriate clinic for which you wish to receive certification. Players will have two options: CEVA Junior Scorer Training or CEVA R2/Lines/Libero. R2 means second referee or down ref. The coach will tell players which course they should take. Only the CEVA Junior Scorer will receive certification on the roster. CEVA requires each team to have at least three (3) certified scorers on the roster. In order to achieve a Y on the roster under Score, "yes, certified" you will need to complete all six (6) videos/quizzes.
Parents helping with 12's teams should take CEVA Junior Scorer Training course. Parents will need a USA Volleyball membership (Limited Adult $35) membership and a background screen ($18) in order to be placed on the 12s roster. Once on the roster, the parent will receive free admission to tournaments and can sit at score table to help players.
Coaches that were certified last season don't have to complete the course this season (second year of Domestic Competition Regulations or DCR).
Coaches may elect to "test out" of certain training materials with a quick 10-question pre-quiz. Score 90% or better on the pre-quiz to skip the bulk of the content and jump to quick reminders. If you do not pass the pre-quiz, you will be directed to take the training materials in full (estimated time 3-5 hrs).
Click the "Register" button on the right hand side of the clinic you wish to take.
