Junior Club Clinics for the 2016 Season

These clinics are designed to aid new clubs and small clubs that consists of 1-2 teams who are unable to provide their own approved clinician. Each clinic consists of a 3 hour classroom session that includes time to take and correct the required test. Referee and scorer clinics will be held at the same time. Each team is required to have players attend either the referee or scorer clinic. We recommend you have six players attend the ref clinic and four players attend the score clinic, both accompanied by a team coach/chaperone. After the clinic portion is complete, teams are required to participate in a practical. The practical will need to be completed during one of your team practices. During the practical, techniques and rules learned in the clinic portion will be applied. Each person should be given an opportunity to practice the new skill. The jr. officiating requirements are complete once a person has successfully finished the clinic AND practical sessions and the attendance record has been forwarded to the Gateway Region Office.

The clinics scheduled below REQUIREs pre-registration. Cost: $10/Individual. Contact Melissa Pouyer, pouyer@gatewayvb.org, or 314-849-1221, to register, or download, complete, and email/mail Clinic Registration Form to Melissa pouyer@gatewayvb.org 10075 Bauer Rd, St. Louis, MO 63128.

Jr Clinician Training

The Gateway Region has moved forward with USA Volleyball in offering easy online courses to be taken at your convenience. All clinician training will now be completed using this method.

We will require annual online certification from anyone teaching your Juniors’ Officials Training. USAV has developed a new process of accessing these online clinician modules to hopefully make it easier for everyone. Here are the instructions:

Login to Webpoint: https://webpoint.usavolleyball.org/ (You must be a CURRENT member with a cleared background screen to register for these clinics).
Under USAV & Region Events (on the left) select Region Ref/Score Clinics
A list of all clinics offered this season will appear along with a Registration button
You will then register for either the Junior Referee Clinicians, Junior Scorer Clinicians or both.

These courses must be completed 100% before teaching your teams how to officiate. I ask you all to send me the names of your clinicians so I can track their progress in the system. You are able to stop and start back up where you left off during these courses. Each completed module will also email you a certificate.

Please note new for 2016 season: When you log onto Webpoint, you will also be able to access USAV Academy by a "one-button" which is blue and located at the bottom of the screen
