Please keep track of USA Hockey's Clip of the week. This weekly publication will often cover points of emphasis, and provides guidance on the standard that should be used when calling games.
Parents, coaches, players, and officials can all learn from these clips.
Also useful are the Officiating Development Program's (ODP) videos that show calls from around the NAHL and USHL. While the penalty options may differ in youth leagues, the calls made are generally to the same enforcement standard expected at the Youth level. Please keep an eye on these videos, too.
REMEMBER..... ALL Game Misconduct and match penalties must be reported through the USA Hockey Incident reporting system (instruction sheet below). Any Match Penalty assessment should also be reported to the SDAHA RIC ASAP! Use email listed to advise of Match Penalty immediately after game.
Also, major penalties included in the aggressive category should be reported in the game reporting system. (Rule 411)
Jared Ahlberg of Aberdeen has been appointed as the Refereee In Chief for the SDAHA.
If you have questions on rule interpretations, testing process or the test itself, registration, or any other issues that arise during the season, please feel free to contact him at;
