The OVA provides members with opportunities to become certified referees and pursue ongoing professional development. Becoming a volleyball referee is a great way to continue with Volleyball for Life.
OVA referees play a key role within the volleyball community ensuring match play occurs in accordance with Volleyball Canada rules. OVA referees can be assigned to referee a range of matches including: OVA tournaments (Indoor Youth Competitions and OVA Beach Tour); Provincial Championships; OUA and OCAA matches; high school games; and other events.

The OVA Rules R Championship is a province-wide competition where OVA referees compete as part of their region by completing as many Rules R quizzes as they can. All officials are automatically entered into the competition and to participate, all you have to do is complete the Rules R “Volleyball Quick Learn” quizzes in your account!
