All teams will be responsible for officiating matches. All teams must have officials who have attended a ref. clinic this year. Any team late for an officiating assignment will be penalized 3 points per game their next match. Coach must either ref up or down.

8. 4-4-2 for 10 minute warm-up and 2-2-1 for the 5 minute warm-up. When teams are warming up, please have parents come out and block balls so they don’t interfere with the other court's game at courts where this is a problem.

9 OFFICIATING REQUIREMENTS: In our region, coaches (or an adult registered
with USAV who has been to an officials’ clinic) will be required to control the match as one of the referees within all age groups. Coaches and players are required to attend an officials’ clinic before officiating. The officiating team must provide a first referee, second referee, scorekeeper, libero tracker, scoreboard operator, and two line judges. If team members need a refresher on how to keep score, there is a on-line power point presentation/tutorial at http://www.ncrusav.org/ncrofficials/scoreclinic.
