2018 USA Volleyball Annual Report
We are implementing new technology, including headsets at national championships events to assist communication between each other, helping to reduce errors and down time. This technology will be expanded in the future due to the excitement we are seeing in our national officials and their appreciation for having access to this learning tool.
We are working hard to have a clear Code of Conduct and moving to develop a stronger relationship toward coaches, officials and team members to combat the growing trend of abuse to toward sports officials.
1,500 referees and scorers used at our national events in all three disciplines.
USA International referees officiated at 20 international events
We are using High Performance Championships as our training ground for emerging officials. We are developing a unique coaching and mentoring program that will bring coaching and mentorship right into the match similar to what players receive. We will bring in a cadre of emerging officials to work directly with our coaches and mentors during a live match, pairing them up to allow them to work together. This will enhance their learning experience and allow them to communicate directly with their mentor live during the match.
