Referees In Alberta
The Volleyball Alberta Officials (VAO) is an organization of all registered volleyball referees in the province of Alberta. It is the recognized provincial body for volleyball referees within Alberta and works closely with Volleyball Alberta (VA), a registered society under the laws of the province of Alberta.
The administrative head of the VAO is the President. The President represents all Alberta referees at the provincial level, while the Regional Officials Chairperson (ROC) represents all level 3, 4 and 5 referees at the Volleyball Canada (VC) level. The ROC is designated as the head referee for the province of Alberta.
For the purposes of volleyball refereeing, the province of Alberta is divided into nine zones. These zone boundaries are set by the VAO. Within each zone, a chairperson is elected to represent that region on a provincial level.
