Referees are accredited though the Volleyball Australia national accreditation system, which includes four levels of accreditation:
- Level 1 Referee
- Level 2 Referee
- Level 3 Referee
- Level 4 Referee
To achieve each level of accreditation individuals must complete the relevant requirements. All requirements for all levels of refereeing accreditation can be found on the Volleyball Australia website – http://www.volleyballaustralia.org.au/page/referee-education-development
Once all requirements for the desired accreditation have been met by individuals, they must then submit an application though the REFEREE ACCREDITATION SUBMISSION section below. All relevant supporting documentation must be uploaded as attachments to the online submission. If all documents aren’t uploaded correctly this will significantly delay your accreditation processing time.
Individuals who already hold an accreditation and simply wish to renew this accreditation, must submit a renewal request though the REFEREE RE ACCREDITATION section below. Please note that L1 accreditation expires every 2 years and L2, L3 and L4 accreditation after 4 years.
