Registration is open, seminars are scheduled. We have some changes this year, as the USA Hockey Officiating Education Program will now have an online component, as well as SafeSport training through the USOC. If you completed SafeSport last year, this training will not be required until next year, as we must renew this every 2nd year. Background checks are still required, but will now be completed through this website(See main page). AS ALWAYS... we can use more officials, now and for the future. PLEASE... grab a friend, help sell our program to others that might be interested in officiating. Remind them of the benefits and fun of officiating, and stack it up against almost any part time job! Bring them to seminar, we'll get them going.
