SRVA Adult and Professional Officials Clinics are now available.

  • VERY IMPORTANT:

Here are the things you need to know about this:

  1. A current, full member can log into Webpoint and click on the red Academy login button and jump right to the Academy. Members can register for and access our entire Academy library by clicking Course Catalog.
  2. VERY IMPORTANT: Please remember that the first step in accessing modules is for users to register for clinics in Webpoint. Only after that registration will users find content in the Academy.
  3. There will be two tracks for indoor officiating in the Catalog – For Credit and Not-for Credit. The For Credit versions give the user credit for viewing coursework. The Non-for Credit versions are for reference only to allow someone to quickly look up a piece of information.
  4. VERY IMPORTANT: You will always access the SRVA Officials Curriculum Courses  by logging into Webpoint and then clicking Log into USAV Academy (on the left nav menu, when they register for a clinic, and a few other places in Webpoint).
  5. By following this procedure, you will not need a separate transaction to log into the Academy and their Academy ID will always be synched with their Webpoint credentials.

 

 

VolleyballRefTraining.com will continue to be an important officiating resource, with information about rules, interpretations, officiating opportunities, applications, and the like.
