Online Clinics now Available!!!!

Southern Region uses USA Volleyball’s Official training & education site called USA Volleyball Academy as our official clinic/exam site. The clinics introduce the rules of the game to our members and provides them with the guidance and support to make their tournament experiences structured, fair, and hopefully, more enjoyable.

In order to receive credit, your courses can only be accessed through your USAV Member Account. When you became a member, you were assigned your very own USAV account. You will need to know your Username and Password to access the site. If you have forgotten it, use the “Forgot my password” button on the sign-in page. 

Steps to register for the online officiating clinics are as follows:

  1. Go to Webpoint to login to your Member Account
  2. Enter your Username and Password
  3. On the left bottom section of the page look for the Region Clinics tab and then click on Region Ref/score Clinics
  4. A list of clinics will then come up on the page. Read each description carefully for the SO Clinics you wish to take. You should only take courses listed for Professionals.
  5. After you register for the clinic, you will receive a confirmation email telling you that you are all signed up and can begin, including a link to the clinics. If you aren’t ready to start yet—no worries—you can log back into the clinics from the main page of your Member Account.
  6. To log in to the place where the SO Clinics can be found (after you register), just click on the “Volleyball Academy” button (on the left side) on your Member Account page. You will then be directed to the Learning Material site.
  7. You will notice that the clinic you signed up for has a SO listed in the title. This just means this is the name of the Southern clinic (all regions of USAV uses this same site).
  8. Under each SO Clinic you will find the actual modules you have to take. Each module will begin with an Introduction Slide to remind you of what you need to take. The actual modules you take are the same modules offered to everyone in USAV—which is why the course titles all begin with US.
  9. You will need to take all modules in your Learning Material site—that includes everything that begins with US.



USAV has added new approved uniform shirt for volleyball officials. Now that these shirts are in production, it is a good time to clarify USA Volleyball’s policy regarding officials’ uniforms at USAV Championship events.
Officials contracted to work at Southern Region events will be permitted to wear the new blue or gray officials’ volleyball polo shirts, along with the new white shirt.

First and second referees do not have to match colors at region events.  Assigned scorers and line judges can either match the referees or be in the default white. Specific instructions for national events will be decided on and communicated by the Head Officials for those events.

It is NOT required that any official go out and buy any other color besides the white. White is ALWAYS the default. The patch will be worn no matter what color polo you are wearing. The old white polo shirt (without piping) are no longer acceptable at any USAV nationally sanctioned qualifiers or tournaments. 

Guidelines regarding the proper uniform can be found on the Volleyball Referee training site
 Indoor Officiating Resources Page.

The new uniform shirts are available at

Other official uniform items can be ordered from the following approved providers:
