Notes from the MHSAA...

The MHSAA has made the decision to delay the opening of officials registration for the 2020-21 season until June in order to have a better understanding of where we stand in returning to school sports in accordance with orders for the state of Michigan. The late registration date will also be moved proportionately with the opening of registration, so officials can expect to have the same amount of time to register with the MHSAA without having to pay a late fee. They will provide updates before opening registration for officials. 

For those of you that are wondering if we can take our online exams early while we're just hanging out... exams are only available when the registration system is open and is tied to who is registered. Unfortunately not available at this time.

Notes from your CAAVO Board...

We hope you are all staying safe and healthy. During this time of uncertainty, we don't have too much to update you on in regards to getting back to outside life, but we wanted to keep you updated on what's going on in the volleyball world.

 

  • Ross has finished loading virtually all of the high school schedules that have been sent to him. He continues to try and secure the remaining schedules from the AD's working from home. Once he feels like we have the majority of all the schedules, he will begin working on making assignments, especially for the weekends in August and September.
  • For our members who are also college line judges and scorers, just about all of the NCAA Div II, III, and Jr. college assignments have been completed. Some of the NCAA Div I schedules have been released, and you will see those begin to show up on your calendars.
  • It remains important that returning members who have not paid their 2020 dues be sure to do that, since that is the primary means by which our network of assignors know officials will be making a commitment to CAAVO to remain as a member.
  • All officials education courses are currently free on nfhslearn.com/courses! Take advantage of this great opportunity before it's gone!

Self-Employed Workers Can Apply for Unemployment

Posting for our fellow officials who may qualify for Michigan's COVID-19 federal Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) as a 1099-independent contractor or low-wage worker. Benefits began Monday, April 13 at 8AM. You may want to look into this if you are normally working as an official during this time of quarantine, especially if you are a multi-sport official.

Our Living Website...

You will find most everything on a clickable menu to the left or at the top of the page. Once you navigate to one section, it becomes active at the top of the left navigation. If you need to get back to full menus, just click the "Home" tab. You'll be right back where you started, just in case you get lost.

We are constantly working to add interesting and valuable content to our website. There is a lot that can be created with this site. It involves input from everyone, so if you have any ideas or thoughts about what you would like to see, please let us know.

Completing your membership will keep you connected to available CAAVO clinics and membership meetings. You will be provided the convenience of paying your yearly association dues online or with a check, as well as registering and paying for clinics online or by check. Each year's membership begins in late December and should be completed by February 15 to avoid the late fee. Just click on the arrow above to get started.

If you have ANY questions regarding the registration process, please don't hesitate to contact any board member.

Disclaimer: You MUST still register with the MHSAA in addition to a registered association in order to officiate volleyball. Note that registering with the MHSAA is usually not available until about June 1 of each year. Please check back to register with MHSAA, or don't forget. Just be sure you ultimately register for both.
