BECOMING A REF

Officiating sports, at any level, is a very rewarding part time job for many people.  Officiating high school (HS) volleyball (VB) in the Central Texas area may be something you might be interested in.  Many of us who already officiate HS VB have played, coached, or watched our children play for years and love staying involved in VB.

The information that follows is a brief summary of the responsibilities and the benefits of being a member of the Heart of Texas (HOT) chapter who provides HS VB officials in the local area.  

The HOT chapter is the organization responsible for providing officials for HS VB matches in all high schools, junior high schools, and middle schools in an area approximately 75 miles around Temple.  The HOT chapter is a member of the Texas Association of Sports Officials (TASO).  TASO is the organization that has the responsibility for organizing, certifying, and supervising all local officials’ chapters for 6 HS sports in Texas (Baseball, Basketball, Football, Soccer, Softball, and Volleyball).  TASO works with the University Interscholastic League (UIL) that is the state of Texas organization responsible for supervising all extracurricular HS activities.

Normally a person interested in officiating contacts our President or our Vice President (contact info is available on our web site), they exchange contact information, and then we tell interested persons to go to our web site (www.hot-volleyball.com) to get additional information to see if officiating HS VB is something they want to do and something they have time to do. Next, we schedule a meeting with persons interested in officiating.  At this meeting we talk about all of the ins-and-outs of officiating HS VB and any questions prospective new officials may have.  This gives new persons interested in officiating all the information they need to make an informed decision on whether or not they would like to officiate HS VB. The next step is for prospective officials to go home and talk this over with their family and then they can make an informed decision. If they want to officiate VB and have the time to officiate HS VB, the next step is for them to start attending our training sessions and meetings.
