We are pleased to announce that our referees Mr. Ng Yun Kwang and Mr. Wong Fong Siang had successfully completed the AVC approved Asian Refereeing Candidate Course organised by the Chinese Taipei Volleyball Association.

We look forward to supporting more local officials attending such courses and helping the fraternity grow the interest and passion for volleyball through officiating at the games.
“The essence of a good referee lies in the concepts of fairness, justice and consistency (being positioned in the middle of both playing courts is a symbol of balance). Together these allow the players to trust the referee’s actions. However, the referee must be a facilitator rather than a controller, an orchestra director rather than a dictator, an efficient promoter rather than an “efficient” punisher.” – FIVB Official Volleyball Rules 2021 – 2024
