Volleyball State Series • Congratulations! This year’s State Series were fantastic! • Overall, Officials that were assigned did a great job! • Thank you to FPOA for hosting a fantastic tournament along with MFOA. Your assistance was greatly appreciated!
2012 Volleyball Finals The FHSAA has signed an extended contract with the Kissimmee Convention and Visitors Bureau for the Volleyball Finals to be held at Osceola Heritage Park – Silver Spurs Arena in Kissimmee. The Florida Professional Officials Association will continue to serve as the Host Association for this event . Our first year in Kissimmee was fantastic and we are looking forward to continued success in the years to come!
Officials Recommendation Forms • Be sure to list alternate officials/crews if available • If you have officials that you would like to recommend, but have not met all criteria, please recommend them and then explain in the comment section why the official/crew has not met all criteria • Utilize the comment section that has been provided (“did not attend field clinic” is not an acceptable comment – we need to know WHY!) • It is important to list crews by ability – not by experience or because, they have not been to that level before. Be sure and utilize the form as it was designed!

Volleyball Evaluation Program • Evaluations are very important to the advancement of officials. • The FHSAA is looking to add an Evaluation Component to all sports. • Evaluation Camps will be added at tournaments during the beginning of the season. • More information will be provided online later this summer.
Officials Uniform • The FHSAA has teamed up with Honig’s to create new Officials Uniforms in various sports. • The sports of Football, Softball and Volleyball have all moved in the direction of new uniforms to generate funding in order to implement new evaluation and training programs. • State Series Volleyball Officials will be required to wear the new uniform shirt at State Series Events (Districts and beyond). • The old uniform will be sufficient for all regular season contests. • The new uniform consists of a white polo shirt with smaller FHSAA shield patch on the left chest and FHSAA acronym patch on the right sleeve. Women’s Short Sleeve Men’s Short Sleeve Unisex Long Sleeve
