SNOA Volleyball

[Download Volleyball Manual]

Volleyball officials must be 18 years or older and out of high school. They are required to attend scrimmages (the week prior to the season opening) for training and evaluation. They also must pass a test prepared by the NFHS.

In the fall, officials are assigned to high school matches throughout Southern Nevada: from Panaca, Nevada, to Needles, California. The matches cover 4A, 3A, 2A, and 1A high schools. In the spring, only the 4A area schools in the Las Vegas Valley area have boys volleyball.

A referee and umpire are assigned to all matches; however, all 4A Varsity matches have four officials: referee, umpire, and two line judges. For 4A matches, two officials will officiate the B match while another two officials officiate the JV match in an adjoining gym. When the B and JV matches are complete, the four officials get together and will officiate the Varsity match. Most 4A matches are played Monday through Friday, and start at 4:00 p.m. This requires all officials to be in place by 3:30 p.m. The two officials assigned to matches outside the Las Vegas Valley area receive travel pay and usually do a minimum of one JV match and one Varsity match.

Volleyball Scorekeepers: Volleyball scorekeepers will sign up for training and certification during the two weeks prior to the season beginning and will meet as necessary during the season. Scorekeepers are only assigned to 4A schools which play Monday through Friday, at 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. Normally one scorer will score a B match and the other scorer will do both the JV and the Varsity matches. Besides keeping the scorebook, scorekeepers manage the scoreboard and the clock. (For more information on volleyball scorekeeping, click on Scoring/Timing).
