Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the NORTHEAST CHAPTER 2 VOLLEYBALL OFFICIALS ASSOCIATION.

Each year our chapter has a training program for those individuals who wish to become eligible to officiate high school volleyball. We have designed a program that will train individuals in a comprehensive knowledge of the rules in preparation for the National Federation Test and in the proper mechanics of officiating.

The Cadet Class is a two year program. Each applicant must complete the application and submit two reference letters, along with the registration fee of $225.00. Once you have been approved for the class, each applicant must then fulfill the following requirements:

Year 1:

  • Attend five rules meetings where the rules of volleyball are presented and discussed by the rules interpreter: Sharon Hughes 
  • Pass the NFHS written rules test. PASSING GRADE IS 80%.
  • Complete eight observations of Varsity/JV matches with your assigned mentor. Signature sheets will be provided for verification purposes. You are not permitted to officiate varsity matches. 

Year 2: Provisional:

  • Fulfill all chapter requirements as they pertain to dues, meetings, refresher testing, and concussion certification.
  • Submit five unique passing evaluations - each from a different official in the NORTHEAST CHAPTER 2 VOLLEYBALL OFFICIALS ASSOCIATION, certified by NJSIAA who is in good standing. These evaluations must be submitted to the cadet supervisor before approval to become a certified official the following year. 
  • Cadets in the second year may schedule and officiate NON-VARSITY MATCHES. This would include freshmen and elementary school. IF NEEDED, THEY MAY OFFICIATE A VARSITY MATCH IN AN EMERGENCY, BUT ONLY AS THE R-2 !!!!!!!
