Revised 6/12/09 Utah High School Activities Association High School Volleyball Officials The UHSAA is grateful for the opportunity to work closely with the Volleyball Officials’ Associations and the Volleyball Officiating Academy in promoting the positive growth of the profession. Together, we look for ways to improve the consistency in the education, training and evaluation of our high school officials. The Academy plays a central role in the education, training, and rating of high school officials in Utah. To provide increased opportunities for high school officials to attend a clinic, especially those outside the Wasatch Front, the Academy will offer a July clinic in St. George. Additional information regarding the Volleyball Officiating Academy is available on the Volleyball page on the UHSAA website (uhsaa.org). We encourage all officials to attend one of the Academy clinics to receive the very best on/off court training. To improve the consistency and communication between the UHSAA and the various chapters and associations representing volleyball officials, a universal scale was created for rating high school officials across Utah. The Academy has agreed to use the rating scale when evaluating high school officials at their “Rating Tournaments.” Officials will receive an Academy rating and also a high school rating (i.e., 100 to 500). Having all officials rated on the same scale by the same independent group should create additional clarity and fairness throughout the state. In assigning post-season the UHSAA considers the knowledge, training, experience, and the evaluations of our officials. We encourage any official interested in working post-season to complete the following in the areas of knowledge, training and experience. KNOWLEDGE 1. Attendance at UHSAA rules clinic or completion of on-line clinic & quiz 2. Successfully pass Part 1 NFHS Volleyball Test 3. Successfully pass Part 2 NFHS Volleyball Test TRAINING 1. Attend a “Volleyball Officiating Academy” (A minimum of every 3 years) 2. Work an Academy “High School Rating Tournament” (minimum of every 3 years) 3. Attend Chapter/Association meetings for additional training EXPERIENCE 1. Work assigned pre-season and season volleyball matches 2. Obtain a state rating from the Academy at a “Rating Tournament” 3. Receive a recommendation from your chapter or association 4. Develop a positive and professional relationship with the coaches* *Coaches can enter evaluations on officials through the Arbiter program Revised 12/16/08 Utah High School Activities Association Volleyball Officials Rating Scale Rationale: To provide a common instrument for rating high school officials throughout Utah. This universal rating system would improve the consistency of the ratings throughout the state and allow the UHSAA to assign officials to the level of play appropriate to their experience, training and overall ability.
