VANCE PITMAN & MICHAEL SAXBY BECOME JUNIOR NATIONAL REFEREES

Congrats to Vance Pitman and Michael Saxby for receiving their Junior National Referee certification at the Boy's Junior National Championships in Dallas, Texas.

Vance and Michael join a very select group of National and Junior National Referees from the Delta Region like National Referees Keith Hutchison, Rachael Stringer, Rob Shewmaker, Tracey Harrison, Phylis Anyango and Junior National Referees David Henry, Leigh Ann Roberts and Michael Sanderson.

Who would have thought just a few short years ago that the Delta Region would have this many national officials! Thanks to each of you for your dedication to our sport and to be willing to take your training to the next level.

JUNIOR RISING STAR OFFICIALS

• Do you consider yourself one of the best Junior Officials in the Delta Region? • Do you actually look forward to your team’s work assignment at a tournament? • Maybe you would like to work as a paid official when you are old enough? You are exactly the athlete that the Delta Region wants to encourage and recognize! Just like outstanding volleyball players are recognized through the High Performance programs, we want deserving Junior Officials in the Delta Region to receive their own recognition. Through the Delta Region Rising Star Official’s Program, junior players who excel as a Referee, Scorer or Line Judge will be awarded the highest honor for a Junior official; RISING STAR OFFICIAL. Chosen by just a few key officials in the Delta Region, players who receive the honor will be awarded a special lanyard and badge court-side immediately following a match. Only individuals who display strong knowledge of the rules of the game and demonstrate good officiating techniques will be considered for such an honor. The goal of the Delta Region Rising Star Program is to encourage athletes that play the game today to want to become the Officials of Tomorrow!
