Millersville University and the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) will be conducting Volleyball Officiating Classes on February 21st, February 28th, and March 7th at Pucillo Gymnasium Room 208 beginning at 7:00pm.   The classes are FREE to any Millersville University student with a valid I.D.  Others interested in attending must pay a $30 fee.
Participants in the START program for Volleyball will attend three sessions on consecutive weeks.  The first session will be a distribution of information packets, rule books and officiating basics.  Session two will be a rules education class and a question and answer period.  The third session will be a PIAA rules certification test.  Current PIAA officials will conduct the sessions.  Once certified, participants will be provided the opportunity to begin officiating locally in PIAA events.  Participants must attend all three sessions.  Preregistration is not required.
The classes are part of the START (Students of Today Are Referees of Tomorrow) program created to encourage current students, particularly student-athletes, to “stay in the game” by becoming an official.  The START program is sponsored by the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference and other small college conferences in Pennsylvania.
