Boy’s Volleyball Needs You!!!

If you are interested in starting a boy’s volleyball program, either in your grade school, middle school, YMCA chapter, church or at a Club level, contact the Arizona Region or e-mail erichbke@msn.com

Junior Officials Development Program Expands

The Junior Officials Development Program will be expanding this year to Tucson.  Fifteen’s and older aged players are encouraged to learn more about the game by officiating and make some money doing it. 

Join the Junior Officials Development Program.  The Jr. Officials officiate the 12’s & 14’s girls matches and are trained and mentored as paid officials.  They learn to R1, R2 and keep score as a provisional and higher official.  This will build confidence in the player as an official, builds the Arizona Region’s officiating core and enables players to continue in volleyball long after they might play. 

Those interested should contact Earl Capps or Bob Tang at jrrefs@qwestoffice.net There will be training sessions upcoming.  Watch the Az. Region website under Officials>Jr Officials for the exact date and time of the training and for what to do to become a Jr Official.
