Officiating Information for All Levels


To encourage Delta Region officials to work as many of our events as possible, our Board of Directors has enacted a one-time $500 bonus plan for the 2023-24 season.  Each Delta Region professional official who works TEN sanctioned events in the Delta Region will receive a $500.00 bonus from the Delta Region at the end of the season.

The details are as follows:

  • This is only available to professional officials registered in the Delta Region.  Officials registered in other Regions are not eligible.
  • Officials must work in TEN Delta Region sanctioned events. 
  •  A 2-day event counts as one event.  Two one-day tournaments in the same event  (12s on Saturday, 13s on Sunday) counts as one event)  A one-day tournament (example: FunVitational Jackson MS March 4) counts as one event.  National Qualifiers are not sanctioned by the Delta Region and do not count.
  • Officials must complete their assigned USAV Academy coursework before 2/1/2024
  • Officials will provide a list of the events they worked and the number of matches in each event to Officials Chair Keith Hutchison at
  • This bonus program is a one-time enticement and does not change the legal status of these officials, who are all independent contractors.  They can choose which matches to work and will provide their own officiating equipment.


The courses and training modules are a member benefit, and are only be available to USAV registered members.  We now have a new Learning Academy platform that will provide access to the online training materials and track the completed certifications for each member. This is a streamlined and simplified process that will eliminate the need to register in one system and take the courses in another.

JUNIOR PLAYERS All Junior players will automatically be enrolled in the complete set of officiating team courses.  These courses are optional, but if your coach wants you to be an R2 or scorer, you are already enrolled and the courses appear on the player's dashboard.  Line Judge certification is no longer required.

JUNIOR COACHES and ADULT PARENT-OFFICIALS All Adult Coaches & Parent-Officials will automatically be enrolled in the courses they need to officiate for their teams.  These courses will NOT allow you to officiate for pay.  If you wish to also become a Professional Referee, please contact the Region office at

Professional Officials: Ignore the Junior coursework assigned to you.  We have established shorter Delta Region-only courses that should be available in a few days.  Professional Provisional Official 1st year; Professional Provisional Official Year 2+, Professional Regional Referee-Advancement Training, Professional Regional Referee-Recertifying.
