 Adults on Junior Rosters Instructions

EVERY ADULT on a roster MUST complete two parts to complete their Iowa Region referee/scoring certification for the 2013/14 season.  Your roster will not reflect that you have finished until you complete both parts.  You should finish both parts prior to your first tournament.  Beginning Feb. 1, tournament directors will be able to charge you for not having a certified adult referee on your roster. 


Attendees must view and finish the online Adult on a Junior Team-Referee Clinic AND the Adult on a Junior team-Scoring Clinic

  • Adults who will function as an R1 or R2 or scorekeeper at some point during the season must complete BOTH the online Referee and Scoring Clinic prior to viewing the webinar.
  • Adults who will ONLY function as a scorekeeper during the season only need to take the online Scoring clinic and view the webinar.

Instructions for taking the Online Adult on a Junior Team Clinic

Or if you prefer, click the icon below to watch an instructional video on how to sign up:



Every adult on a junior roster must complete ONE of the following three options:

  1. Attend a live clinic (see below for a list of available clinics).
  2. View the Iowa Region Webinar online.  This webinar will clarify rules new and old, work on court time management, crowd and bench control and how to fix a score sheet.
  3. Attend a 1 hour review session at the beginning of specified tournaments (use this option as a last resort, as it will not be offered at every tournament).


We are currently working on creating the webinar, and plan to have it finished by mid-November.

New Scoring Procedures

Here are new scorekeeping updates for the 2012/13 season.

  2. Hourglass Points: When playing 21-point sets at a tournament, the set will begin with a score of 4-4, and end at 25.  On the scoresheet, the first four (4) points for each team will be hourglassed prior to beginning the set.

Junior Scoring Clinic Information

Junior players (18u and younger) do not have to attend a live scoring clinic.  They should individually take the Iowa Junior Player Scoring Clinic online.  Once they have completed the clinic, their USAV membership will be automatically updated and they will show as certified on their roster.

  • Note: a club may require that all junior members take the scoring clinic.  The Iowa Region requirement is that any players that will perform scoring duties have completed the clinic.
  • Note:  If a club runs a live clinic for it's junior member rather than have then do the online clinic, their attendance will NOT be noted in Webpoint and will NOT show up on your official roster
If you have already completed the Junior Player Referee Clinic Online, it also fulfills your Scoring requirements!  To receive credit and have your scoring certification reflected in your USAV membership and on your roster, you must register for the Iowa Junior Player Scoring Clinic through webpoint.  When you finish that process (Steps #1-#7 in the instructions below), your membership will be updated.

To take the Iowa Junior Player Scoring Clinic Online:

1) Register for the course through webpoint
2) Be sure to print a blank scoresheet to use during the clinic!
3) Take all clinics and quizzes (you can doing them all at once, or do one and come back at a later time to complete the rest).
