Refereeing

refs

Referees are an extremely crucial element in the development of indoor volleyball, beach volleyball and sitting volleyball throughout the country at all levels. Refereeing is challenging, rewarding and above all, great fun. 

Becoming a match official provides you with an array of opportunities - making new and lasting friends, travelling to new locations, and being a part of some world-class, hotly-contested volleyball action are but a handful of many. Referees are not only the closest onlookers to the enthralling action happening during a match, but also yield the highest authority on the court. With no two matches being alike, every match presents you with fresh, new challenges that equip you with skills, such as confidence and decisiveness, that are applicable in everyday life.

New Strategy For Refereeing

Referee Strategy 2015 -2024
December 2015

Last month a new strategy for refereeing was approved at Volleyball England’s board meeting.

The strategy sets out a new vision for refereeing to improve both the quality and quantity of officials throughout the sport – from local leagues to Super 8s. There is also a pathway document that shows how you can get into refereeing and progress all the way to international level.

Read a summary or full version of the strategy in the PDF opposite.
