Live Matches for Learning Opportunities in 2017

Throughout the season, matches will be listed below that you might consider going to watch and observing veteran officials. This can be a great learning opportunity for new and younger officials. Feel free to approach the officials working the matches afterwards and ask questions you might have about things you observed during play. Take your TASO ID card and let the gatekeeper know you are there to observe senior officials.  They should allow you into the gym without paying an entrance fee.

2017 New Officials Training Schedule

New official’s training is provided in July to prepare for the upcoming season. There is no cost to participate. While it is not mandatory, it is highly recommended for understanding the basics of officiating volleyball. No new official will be given assignments without some demonstration of proficiency in a basic understanding of procedures.
