HERE IS A CLARIFICATION FROM THE CIF SS OFFICE re ASSIGNMENTS FOR SOUTHERN SECTION SCHOOLS:

PROTECTIVE HEADGEAR
A player wearing protective headgear must have a letter from the CIF office approving use of the gear. If no letter is present, the player cannot participate in the match wearing the gear.
 
PADDING ON EQUIPMENT
It is absolutely vital that all padding and safety concerns are addressed prior to warm-ups!  Liability begins from the time the officials arrive within the visual confines of the playing area.  If a playing area cannot be made legal then that match will be suspended as the R1 contacts the CIF S.Section Commissioner immediately.  
 
If there is lack of proper padding or the center line is not marked/no tape, and the school refuses to make it legal by rule…..
·         The official shall suspend the match time, and call the SS Office to obtain a ruling on the status of the contest
·         The SS direct line to Assistant Commissioner Brandi Stuart is 562-493-9500 x 226
·         Later that night send an email to Joanne Venditto, SCVOA CIF SS Rep jvenditto22@earthlink.net and your Area Liaison & Assignor

If you get email from officials after the fact, with/without pictures re the lack of padding or the center line is not marked and the school does not want to put the line down or pad the appropriate equipment…..
·         Forward the email w pictures if you have them to Brandi Stuart, Assistant Commissioner - brandis@cifss.org
·         Cc the following:
o    Joanne Venditto, SCVOA CIF SS Representative - jvenditto22@earthlink.net
o   Your Assignor - cgsl4hvn@aol.com
o   Your Area Liaison - verncan@aol.com
o   Click (HERE) to email them all
 
Remember, the official has no jurisdiction to decide the status of the match.  The CIF SSection Commissioner(s) makes that determination.  The official suspends the match until the problem is resolved.  If the team does NOT WANT to comply, then the SS Office should be called.  Let the person answering the phone know that you are the official on a volleyball match.
