Officiating A Volleyball Game

4 posts in this topic

Anyone care to give me a crash course on how to referee volleyball? The games are 5-6 grades and 7-8 grades. My son joined his team and they're short on money. They have to pay the referees now but I've offered to do it for free. I just don't want to look like a complete fool doing it. My experience with volleyball is on the very basic level. Thanks.

derekd,

The first thing you need to do is discuss the league rules with your league admins as they may have different rules for their league. Are they under FIVB, USA, NCAA or NHS?

Here are some links to take a look at:

Good luck!

there are 2 standards used. You are most likely going to be using the rules governed by the school, which follows states rules (NHS), if your in IL,

its IHSA rules. My best suggestion to you is to grab a rule book from either of those places and read it. They are an easy read and detailed enough to make eeven the newest novice look like they know whats going on.

Thanks for the responses. They ended up not using me. They require an IHSAA official (Indiana) to do the games. The atmosphere of the games is really on a "club" level though, nothing too serious, so I thought maybe they could get away with not having a real official. That's okay though because I think I'm going to get certified in that sport anyway. It was the first time I've really watched it other than some Olympic stuff. I enjoyed it and my son got pretty good at it. I'm sure he'll want to play again.
