TEST RESULTS
FYI, your test results are available online. Officials that did not score a 90% MAY STILL OFFICIATE THIS SEASON BUT WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE TO WORK POST-SEASON TOURNAMENTS. School administrators of coaches who do not score 90% have received a communication from the KSHSAA.

R1: SLOW DOWN, HOLD THE CALL
The new signal sequence seems to be going well. To repeat what was stated in last weeks newsletter: SLOW DOWN!! Blow the whistle for the violation, THEN give the result (point/loss of rally), THEN THINK "BECAUSE" and give the signal for the violation.DON'T FORGET THE PULLY SYSTEM - give one signal, then lower that arm and give the violation signal. HOLD THE SIGNALS long enough to be seen by all.

COMMUNICATION COMES IN MANY FORMS

  • SIGNALS - It's important to use NFHS signals when communicating an infraction/call. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE UP SIGNALS & NAMES FOR SIGNALS. Remember, the NFHS signals (rule book, pg. 58-59) are how we communicate in volleyball.
  • BODY LANGUAGE - Officials need to be reminded of what their body language signals – such as rolling eyes, facial expressions and leaning on equipment during the match. Remember: everyone is watching you. What do you want them to see?
  • UNIFORM, APPEARANCE - All volleyball officials are expected to be neatly attired. Pants, socks and shoes are to be black (not gray or faded) and the shirt is a white (not yellowed, stained or torn) KSHSAA official volleyball shirt. Excessive jewelry is discouraged – but don’t forget your watch!

PLAYER EQUIPMENT: 4-1-1
Please review rule 4-1-1. Players may not wear a guard, cast or brace made of hard and unyielding leather, plaster, pliable (soft) plastic, metal or any other hard substance shall not be worn on the hand, wrist or forearm, EVEN THOUGH COVERED IN SOFT PADDING. Officials should question suspisious looking “taped areas” on the hand or forearm to make sure they do not hide metal or hard plastic braces. Coaches are responsiblre to let the primary officials now that their players are properly attired and equipped. << continue >>
