Video Plays of the Week


September 12 - September 18, 2021

This week illustrates a finer point in volleyball officiating.  Be aware of the situation!
Hopefully, this video can be an "Ah Ha" moment for some.  The R2 here graciously agreed to use this moment for her to help others.


September 5 - September 11, 2021

We need to communicate with coaches, especially when they are upset. Calm listening can go a long way to prevent brief outbursts from escalating to misconduct cards.


August 16 - August 22, 2021

This week, we'll see some ball handling, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.


August 9 - August 15, 2021

Here's an oldie that we can all re-visit:


April 26 - May 1, 2021

 A good R2 can make the difference between having a good match and a bad match.  Although the R1 sets the tone and has overall control of the match, the R2 works hard on the administrative details during a dead ball and protects the R1 by establishing a rapport with the coaches.


April 19 - April 24, 2021

 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.


 April 12 - April 18, 2021 

Judging whether a block is legal or not involves both the vertical and horizontal planes of the net.  This can be tricky but learn from these videos. 


April 5 - April 10, 2021 

Are you supporting your R1 by doing your job to the best of your ability?  It takes concentration and resisting temptation!


March 29 - April 3, 2021

Sometimes, as R2s, we get caught in awkward positions because the players and the ball goes in unpredictable directions.  Our job is to anticipate the possibilities and get in the best position to make a call.  This weeks video highlights how to do just that.


March 22 - 27, 2021

Block/Hit #1 or 2 hits?



March 15 - 20, 2021

Here is a good video example of an illegal attack.  You must be centered on the net to judge if the ball is still in the plane at the contact.
