Recognizing and calling overlaps is a skill many of us need to improve.  Whether we use a line-up card or not, we need to be more diligent in recognizing positional faults and calling them when appropriate.

Greetings!
Our lesson for February is one of the most difficult aspects of officiating volleyball: Identifying Rotations and Alignment Issues. Our friend, Gary Frieders of North Bay Volleyball Officials, has produced an excellent video for beginning and intermediate level officials to help sharpen our skills in this area.

 Here are some thoughts about judging ball-handling.  Remember, everyone's an expert but your opinion is the only one that matters.  Don't be influenced by player/coach/spectator reaction or expectations.  Find your level and be consistent!

Thoughts from Corny's Corner

  

March 2020

The boy’s game is a different animal from the girls.  It has higher levels of speed, power and athleticism.  In order to effectively officiate this game, your eye speed and court awareness must be elevated.  Knowledge of rotations and back row awareness, without getting bogged down in a line up card, is a must. 

I have attached a video as an example.

‚ÄčIn this sequence, I illustrate a common error for all levels of referee.  I’m just picking on the rookie (sorry Patty).  Missing net faults is caused by a lack of concentration on the R2s primary duty during play; net and center line faults.
