Referee Guidelines

The Volleyball Canada Officials Committee publishes on an annual basis the Referee Guidelines for Referees in Canada 2016-2017. The goal of this document is to standardize the interpretation of the rules, the mechanics of the Referees, and the game procedures used in the match throughout Canada. This document, along with the Rule Book, is to be the guide for Canadian Referees in the consistent application of the rules.

Each referee is responsible for downloading the Guidelines for referees and become familiar with its content prior to starting the volleyball season.
