The GKCOA volleyball staff will be holding officiating clinics on Tuesdays in June (June 7, 14, 21, 28) in conjunction with an area high school summer league involving Fort Osage, William Chrisman, Truman, Raytown, O’Hara, and Grain Valley.



You may attend as much or as little as you would like.  Please register by EMAILING the person indicated below.  If you want to attend multiple weeks, you will need to send multiple emails.  There will not be a charge for attending this year, but please communicate with the person in charge that week regarding your attendance.  Just like in the regular season, it is not professional to register and then fail to show up or call ahead of time when conflicts arise.


This year, the clinic will focus more on general techniques and court time, rather than individualized instruction and classroom sessions.  There will be a person in charge who will observe and provide general feedback, but individualized, written feedback will not be provided this year.  The clinic will give officials another opportunity to see game situations, practice proper mechanics and have the opportunity to be seen by veteran officials and assignors.  The more prepared you are for the season, the likelihood of being assigned higher level matches increases.


There will be three courts (2 varsity and 1 JV) each night.  Attire for the evening will be your volleyball officiating shirt, presentable black shorts, socks, tennis shoes, and a whistle.  Wearing your entire uniform is acceptable, but not necessary.  Since we are not charging this year, we are not providing food and drink as in years past.  So, please make sure you provide a snack or dinner of some sort if you plan on staying for the entire evening.


The schedule each week is as follows—PLEASE NOTE THE SITE AND START TIMES:

Please arrive at least 20 minutes ahead of the first match.
