TASO Austin Chapter/District 13 - Volleyball Officials Homepage

Our summer on-court training sessions are now over. A huge THANK YOU to everyone that contributed their time and expertise to helping our new officials get prepared. We have three classroom training sessions planned for July 28, 29, and 30 at the Brushy Creek Recreation Center 6:30PM to 8PM. All new officials plus those first/second year officials looking for a refresher should plan to attend. Every night covers a different topic - check the training calendar for details.

This year's Whistle Chatter has been posted!

The 2014 calendar has been updated (July 22) to reflect locations for chapter meetings AND A CHANGE IN THE AUGUST NEW MEMBER MATCH MEETING (now August 13 at St. Andrews) . REMINDER: Our last 'A' meeting is Saturday, August 2nd at the Buda Comfort Inn at 9AM. The last chance for attending a District Rules Clinic is this weekend, August 2/3. Register for at www.taso.org. REMEMBER - no one may work a match until they've completed the State TASO Test and attended either the State Meeting or a District Rules Clinic.

This season's 2014 chapter application should have already been completed and mailed to our treasurer, Bonnie Caddell, at 1321 Ewald Rd., New Braunfels, TX 78130.

With about 170 officials, the Austin Volleyball Chapter is a member in good standing with TASO (Texas Association of Sports Officials), a statewide organization dedicated to providing quality officiating for both public and private Middle & High School Volleyball. The main coverage area for the Austin District 13 Chapter is a 110 mile radius around the city of Austin centered at Highland Mall.

After then, only those with demonstrated officiating experience will be considered.
