Meetings/ Scrimmages & Other Important Dates

It is the responsibility of each MCOA Official to be knowledgeable of all upcoming meetings, scheduled events, scrimmages and local & FHSAA clinic attendance requirements for their sport. If an Official cannot attend, the Official must confirm their absence and provide a written (emailed) explanation to the sport commissioner & receive a written (emailed) "excused from attending" reply to avoid a fine or other punishment.

We will have two MANDATORY meetings this season. The first on June 22. You must attend OR be excused in writing. Attend or not, you are expected to know, understand and apply correctly everything covered in the MANDATORY meeting. Our second MANDATORY will include Brevard County High Schools Varsity Coaches. The date of this meeting has not been set yet. All are encouraged to attend this very important meeting.

I understand that sometimes life gets in the way of Volleyball. So, when life happens, take care of life first. Work, family, birthdays, anniversaries, school, etc., ALL of those things are more important than volleyball. I know that. But please remember, our training meetings are for your benefit. So please make every effort to attend. Mark these dates on your calendar. Please look at your known life events and BLOCK those dates in ARBITER now. It is VERY frustrating for me & costly for you, when you have to decline an assignment because it falls on a date that you forgot to BLOCK.

First & second year MCOA Volleyball officials should attend ALL of our training meetings & scrimmages, "how else will I know how good you are." During these meetings we cover rules, situations, procedures, & mechanics. And have been known to have lively repartee on occasion. Please join us and participate.

All meeting times are 6-7:30pm @ the Central Brevard Library, unless otherwise noted.
Dates in RED are mandatory.
