NOTE: Officials who have officiated at the NCVF College Sports Club Championships, Boys JNC, or a Boys Qualifier within the last three seasons and/or achieved the USAV National Scorer Certification will earn higher consideration for advancement. The candidate’s attitude, future potential, and past history in the NTR are taken into consideration when making the determination which official(s) are selected to represent the NTR as a National Candidate to USAV by the Advancement Committee(s). The completion of all above requirements does not guarantee selection by the advancement committee to be selected as an NTR Candidate Representative. USAV makes the final decision on which candidate’s applications are accepted or rejected.
