Nearly all collegiate volleyball officials begin as a high school volleyball official. There are numerous valuable skills that are learned at the high school level of officiating that should be mastered before becoming a collegiate official.
Because many of the people who wish to learn to officiate the sport of volleyball have no prior experience with the sport, either as a player, coach, or referee, it is important to have at least three-five years of officiating experience at the high school, or club level.
