USA VOLLEYBALL ACADEMY ~ OFFICIAL CLINIC/EXAM SITE FOR OFFICIALS
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:
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
