For those new to USA Volleyball officiating, the first step is to find and contact local Officials Assoc or USAV Alaska Region Officials Chair.


After contacting the appropriate chair from your region, your certification process with USA Volleyball will get underway.


Each region has its own process, but in most cases, you will need to take a clinic (in person or online through, take an exam (also in person or online through, and be evaluated as a referee or scorer. If you plan on working with juniors, you will need to pass a background screening. Your regional personnel will guide you through the process for your region. Get started today!.


2021/22 USA volleyball officials training will be held at the ASA (Alasaka Sports Assoc) 2464 East Tudor Road Thursday 9 Sept 6-9pm . This training is USAV certification to officiate USA adult league & USA Juniors.

HS 2021  were held in early August.  Officials will need to attend one of the training sessions for the upcoming fall  HS season.
Also, HS Registration with ASAA is changing a bit this year, they will be using  Arbitor for registration and testing. They are hoping to have the site link set up by the end of the month  (June) so please be looking for information on the opening and instructions on how to register.

An overview is:
You will go to the ASAA website.  Click on the link to register and it will take you to the Arbitor site.
You will either need to set up a new account or log into your current account.  We have some folks already registered in there because they worked NCAA matches in past seasons.
Once you get set up/logged in, you should see ASAA listed as an organization for you to register
You will pay for your membership there and we believe you will have access to the test from this same site.
Books will be sent out direct from ASAA after you are registered.

Of course, all of this information is a work in progress, so please be bendy flexy (a Julie term 🙂 )to a few minor changes should they arise.
