Welcome to the GEVA Officials' general information page. There is also a separeate page dedicated for the certification of Junior officials (R2 and scorers) (see the list of Useful Links).
From this page, you will be able find the latest news and events (e.g., clinics) for Officials as well as links to resources available to Officials (e.g., rules, scoresheets, procedures, etc.).
GEVA has established a training fund in the name of Alex Valow who passed away in the summer of 2008.
In his memory, GEVA has established the fund in the amount of $500 per year that may be awarded to anyone, for any activity which contributes to the training of our Region’s Officials. It can be used to bring training resources to the Region, or for USAV members to attend sessions that advance their careers and who can be expected to assist the Region with its training objectives, or to undertake projects that will advance the training of our officials.
Examples of activities that may be considered include, but are not limited to, travel to a National or Junior National referee rating session, travel to a National Scorer training session, attendance at an officiating camp, the officials’ convention, travel to the High Performance Championship, developing training materials.
