The 3rd Annual AVCA Girls and Women’s Volleyball Officials Appreciation Week starts today and runs through Oct. 7.
This nine-day period is set aside to make sure our officials know how important they are to the sport. At matches during that timeframe, coaches, student-athletes, parents, and fans are encouraged to celebrate officials for all they do, including the role they play helping volleyball remain one of the most popular sports.
College and high school teams can participate by choosing a home match, coordinating with the visiting team, and recognizing the officials with small tokens of appreciation. Teams are encouraged to take photos and videos and sharing them on social media (make sure to tag @AVCAVolleyball and #OFFICIATIONWEEK).
