CLUB DIRECTORS UPDATE 10/14/18

CLUB DIRECTORS MEETING
The Club Directors meeting for the 2018-2019 season is scheduled for Monday, 11/05/18, 7pm, McKinley High School-Hirata Hall.  We highly encourage Club Directors or Club Representatives to attend this meeting.
NEW ON-DEMAND IMPACT (FREE)
All coaches must be IMPACT certified to coach junior members in any USAV sanctioned event.  The new IMPACT On-Demand course is now free to current USAV members so we highly recommend that everyone take advantage and register.  Taking this course will fulfill the indoor and beach IMPACT requirement for coaches.  In addition, the course will also serve as a great refresher for current coaches.  This new course will also certify coaches for the Beach IMPACT requirement.  The great part about it is...it's FREE to current USAV members!
 
Please log into your Webpoint account and click on the red USAV ACADEMY button on the bottom left and follow the link to the "2018-19 IMPACT On-Demand" course under the September 2018 section.
NEW ON-DEMAND SAFESPORT CERTIFICATION (FREE)
The new SafeSport course is now available and must be taken by coaches, chaperones, officials, trainers, team reps, club directors, etc.  It is highly recommended that any other adult dealing with junior players complete the certification as well.  Those members who have a current SafeSport certification with an expiration date of 10/31/18, will need to take this new course.  The certification will be valid for 2 years after completion.

USA VOLLEYBALL UNIFORM REQUIREMENTS & REMINDERS

 

Link: https://volleyballreftraining.com/rules_interpretations_indoor.php

 

The updated presentation will assist teams and vendors to design uniforms that are legal for USAV play.

 

The Rules Advisory Commission and Regions have developed a plan to help teams ensure they have legal uniforms for the 2018-2019 season. Teams may use this website to have uniforms reviewed prior to ordering if they are unsure of the uniform design, number contrast, or Libero uniform contrast. This process will assist officials, clubs, players, and fans online and in the gyms identify players on the court.

 

If a team has a question on a current uniform, they can seek assistance from the USAV Rules Interpreter. If a uniform is not compliant, USAV will work with the teams to find a solution that will be in effect for all Bid, Qualifier, and National Events. Regions may make their own decisions for in-region events. Please help us help you avoid any issues with your uniforms this season!

 

If you are uncertain about your uniforms, please fill out the form located in the above link (as accurately as possible) and upload front and back images of each jersey your team might be wearing this season. The USAV Rules Interpreter will then put together an approval form for your team indicating what jerseys should be worn in combination with each other. If any jerseys are a problem, that will also be included in the form from the interpreter.
