The training may be accessed by logging in to your Sports Engine account, select Household from the left menu, click on your  account, click on View Details.  In the upper right corner will be a link to the USAV Academy; click on this box and you will be sent to the Academy site where you will be able to enroll and complete the material.

No excuses for missing a clinic!
Please check back often to confirm location and times.
New clinics are added throughout the season. 
If you wish to host a clinic, we will provide clinicians for either Scorer,
Referee or both.  The following are basic conditions for being a host:
1. Provide a site with a suitable place to project a Power Point presentation.

2. Have a minimum of 20 and maximum of 100 attendees for each clinic.

3. All attendance will require advance reservations through Sports Engine.

4. Clinics must be open to all Region members and be posted on the Lone Star web site.

5. You may limit the number of attendees to conform to venue size or local restrictions.  We will post those limitations as part of the clinic information on the web site.

6. There may be no additional fees charged for clinic attendance.

7. The application fee for certification is $25.  Anyone wishing to attend a clinic and not be certified will pay $5.

To schedule a clinic, please contact the coordinator in your area:

Memorandum

TO:                              Lone Star Region Junior Club Directors
COPY:                        Will Vick, Lone Star Region Commissioner
FROM:                        Dick Kappel, Junior Development Director
                                    Thomas Hoy, Referee Chair
DATE:                          1-6-15
RE:                              Team Referees for 15 and under teams


Because of the adult and peer pressure that is sometimes put on officials in volleyball matches when 15 and under Junior referees are acting as the R1, and because many regions across the country already require coaches to be the first choice as a referee (R1, or R2 if a uniformed, paid referee is provided) for younger teams, the Lone Star Region requires coaches/roster adults of 15 and under junior teams to accept the role of primary referee for the team. If the coach is the R1, a younger player can be the R2 if they have attended a referee clinic.

Please have your team coaches of your 15 and under teams (or other adult listed on the team roster) plan on applying for certification, or re-certification as the case may be, as a referee. This process includes that they 1) renew if currently certified, or 2) apply as a referee, attend a referee clinic, take the referee exam and correct it as needed, complete two ratings (one must be as an R1), and join USAV.

We believe that you will agree that this is the best direction for us to take for the protection of the younger players and the integrity of the game. We hope that you will embrace this concept and participate fully as a club.
