Referees are an important part of any volleyball game. They keep control of the court and direct the flow of the game.
Easts Volleyball is invested in developing the referees we have here in our club. Below are several opportunities available for our referees to improve their skills and knowledge.
This year, Easts will be offering opportunities for referees of all skill levels to increase their experience officiating. Throughout the year, Easts hopes to run several refereeing development sessions where referees are able to come and increase their knowledge of the game and rules as well as officiate a few games.
As the year progresses, opportunities for you to referee at events will appear here, as well as development clinics run by high-level, experienced referees. Click on the name to view more information about the event or register.
The Pathway to Level 2
In order for officials to attain their Level 2 badge, Volleyball Australia requires them to attend a face-to-face course as well as completing the competency checks (see right).
As a part of our refereeing development program, referees have the ability to request for their officiating (competency) to be assessed in order to meet the requirements to be upgraded to Level 2. These can be performed at almost any competition.
Easts offers the ability for you to be assessed at The Phoenix League on Monday Nights by accredited referees. Assessments at the Phoenix League require no payment, however, you may not receive remuneration for the officiating done there while being assessed.
To attain an upgrade to Level 2, referees must demonstate competency in:
- 3x First Referee (R1)
- 3x Second Referee (R2)
- 2x Scorer (S)
- 2x Linejudge (LJ)
