Basic details for our New Referee Program include:

3) completion of USAV background screen and membership registration.

In the meantime, you can get ahead of the curve and prepare for USAV officiating by visiting USAV's Officials Resources page: Resources for Officials - USA Volleyball. There you will find USAV rules & interpretations, and other certification requirements. NOTE: If you are not currently a USAV member, you will not have access the training video library.
