2019 COVOA Meetings
Hello COVOA Members!
Did you save the date? What? Yes, our extended training is coming up on August 17, 2019. We are planning a great time together. Watch for more information to come!
Don’t forget to take advantage of the opportunity to attend one of the OAOA Regional Trainings.
The clinic on Saturday, July 20, 2019 at Marist High School has the OCEP Clinic from 9am to noon, and then a bonus opportunity to attend the OCEP Principles Course from 1:00 to 2:30pm. If you have never taken the OCEP Principles Course, the OSAA Officials handbook says you need to take one within the first three years of officiating.
The other OAOA Clinic is Saturday, August 10th at St. Mary’s High School in Medford, from 9am to Noon. This clinic is NOT offering the OCEP Principles Course.
These clinics are always worth your time.
The Board has set up our meeting schedule for the 2019 Volleyball season and we want you to have this information for your summer planning. Remember ALL of the pre-season training occurs in August, so please plan to attend all of the meetings.
