Junior Refereeing & Scorekeeping

It is the policy of the Evergreen Region that ALL Junior Players and Coaches become certified to referee and scorekeep matches. This not only guarantees quality-run events and competition, but also provides opportunities to become involved in another exciting part of the game. 

Junior Requirements

For Junior Players, there are two different ways to become certified:


  • Clubs with 30+ members must host their own ref/score clinic. Please contact your Coach or Club Director directly for clinic information.
  • Clubs with less than 30 members can attend one of the ERVA sponsored clinics. See the list of upcoming clinics below for more information.


  • Online clinics are a make-up option for those unable to attend a Region or club/sponsored clinic OR those that are still not certified after January 4th, 2018.
