Pre-season Officials’ Clinics are one of the cornerstone
programming efforts collaboratively managed by the NCAA and PAVO. Clinic
programming, content development and distribution, and clinician-driven
delivery platform are partially funded by a grant from the NCAA and are
primarily intended to prepare officials for the upcoming women's collegiate
volleyball season. While all volleyball officials are invited to attend, most
conferences and assignors highly recommend (some even mandate) clinic
attendance as a preparatory step for referees for the upcoming season.
Clinic curriculum typically includes new NCAA rules, new techniques
and protocols, matters related to professionalism, and other areas of emphasis.
The NCAA considers clinic attendance as required criterion for post-season
officiating assignment. Registration online is highly recommended, and is
easily done on the PAVO E-Store (just click on the tab above). For those who
pre-register online, the PAVO 2015 portion of the clinic fees is indicated in
the table below. As always, local clinic hosts may charge an additional amount
for local expenses (copies, facility, etc.). The amount due to PAVO plus the
local clinic fee will be collected when you pre-register online with a credit

here for the clinic locations and host information.
You must register online by 11pm CST on the
Tuesday before the clinic date. If you miss the pre-registration deadline,
you may attempt to attend the clinic of your choice as a walk-in. However, clinic
hosts are not required to accommodate attendees who are not pre-registered and
will do so on a space-available basis only. A walk-in fee of $50 will be
charged in addition to the PAVO clinic fee and local clinic fee. As a
courtesy, if you miss the pre-registration deadline, please contact the host
directly to notify them that you plan to walk-in, so that they can plan
accordingly. Please contact the host
directly if you have any other questions.
If you do not have a credit card please call the PAVO Central Office
(888/791-2074) to pre-register for the clinic of your choice.
PAVO will accommodate boards and conferences that pay the clinic
registration fees for the individuals on their roster. If your board chair or
conference coordinator has informed PAVO that s/he is responsible for your
clinic registration fee, you will see a prepaid "voucher" in the
system which will reflect that responsibility. Even if a third-party is paying
your registration fee, you must
pre-register online to avoid the $50 surcharge!
