7 Coaching Leadership In deference to personal sensitivity and potential social media exposure, coaches are asked to please instruct their student athletes to not change jerseys in the gym/bench area or other public areas. Please have your athletes change clothes in a confined area not open to the public, i.e., locker room or restroom area.

11 POINT OF EMPHASIS © REFEREE ENTERPISES INC. 2013 Informal Signals Hand signals for player numbers Referees need to discuss the use of informal and non- verbal signals in their own prematch conference Signaling of players’ numbers is very important Suggested standard for signaling players’ numbers is provided in detail in the NFHS Case Book and Officials Manual When a player is in the net, the referees will communicate the number of the player in violation Signaling provides assistance in communicating to coaches, players and fans as to the offender High school volleyball officials may not work with each other frequently, so consistency in the use of the hand signals is important

12 POINT OF EMPHASIS © REFEREE ENTERPISES INC. 2013 Informal Signals from R2 to R1 for situation out of view of the R1 There may be occasions when there is a play that is the responsibility of the R1, but is clearly out of his/her view The R2 shall assist the R1 by ruling upon such a situation through a visual, informal signal During referee’s prematch conference, how such signals will be conveyed should be discussed Good eye contact between officials is imperative The R2 should hold the informal signal long enough for the R1 to observe and the R1 will accept or not accept if view not blocked Referees must be alert and communicate with each other when these situations arise

13 © REFEREE ENTERPISES INC. 2012 End-of-Set Clarification in the Officials Manual for the second referee confirming with the timer to start three-minute clock between sets with the first referee’s second whistle, initialing the scoresheet and collecting new lineups for the next set.
