Comments Off on West Coast Club Championships

Intermountain Volleyball is proud to be hosting the 2012 West Coast Club Championships here in Salt Lake City on May 11th and 12th. We want all the teams in the Intermountain Region and throughout the west to come out and compete.

To sweeten the pot we have dropped the price of entry to an incredibly low $275 for the two-day tournament.  Not only have we slashed the price, but we’ve also added a fantastic prize. The winning team in each age division* will get their $750 entry fee into the 4th Annual Summer Soiree paid by IVA. The Summer Soiree Volleyball Tournament takes place from June 22nd to June 25th in sunny Anaheim, California right down the street from Disneyland and makes for a great end-of-year tournament and vacation for any club.

A Premier Referee Camp for USAV will be held at the GJNC in Columbus, Ohio, prior to the beginning of the Junior National Referee Candidates rating session. The camp will be held starting the evening of July 1, 2012, and will continue through July 4, 2012, until around 2:00 p.m. The registration fee for this USAV Premier Training Camp is $250. All campers must have a minimum USAV Regional rating and we anticipate that most campers will be Junior National candidates. Registration is accepted on a first-paid, first-accepted basis only. Campers are responsible for their own travel costs, meals and lodging expenses during the camp. If you have talked to those who took this camp in the past, you know this is the one to register for.

Campers will attend a classroom session Sunday evening and then be observed and evaluated in the first and second referee positions on the following days. Campers will also have the opportunity to officiate with training staff members, work with score sheets, and round out the training with activities to help prepare them for their next advancement. After each set of matches, the campers will be debriefed and have the opportunity to discuss the matches and ask questions of the National Trainers. Members of the training staff will be available throughout most of the GJNC to answer questions. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn the latest techniques and rules from some of the top trainers and officials in the country. Space in the camp is limited, so register for the camp now!
