Hockey develops skills on the ice that build a foundation for a lifetime. In addition to athletic prowess, hockey promotes confidence, pride, focus and responsibility. With an emphasis on fun, hockey is a game to be played and enjoyed for life.
Starting with the bonds created in the locker room to the relationships formed on ice, hockey creates life-long friendships. This camaraderie shared on and off the ice encourages teamwork and the natural development of leadership skills.
From learning to balance school, responsibilities at home, time at the rink and playing with friends, hockey encourages kids to learn time management skills that will later serve them in all facets of life. Hockey’s unique source of physical fitness promotes healthy living.
The thrill of carrying the puck up the ice on a breakaway, the exhilaration of scoring your first goal or making that amazing save is possible due to the encouraging environment hockey provides to try new things and grow as a hockey player and person.

It is that time again. The time for officials to register, train, and certify is NOW. We cannot execute hockey without officials on the ice! We are always desperate for referees in the northern areas and the ranks have been reduced statewide. We need qualified help and will mentor you into a position of confidence to help us execute our programs.
Registration for officials began August 2nd. The certification process continues to evolve this year but it is the same generally as last season with tweaks. The revisions are described in a letter from the National Referee-in-Chief. The letter is displayed at this link: USAH letter from Dave LaBuda, USA Hockey National RIC
The actual class room time has been reduced to allow for the online modules. The modules have been cleaned up and reduced in time this season.
I strongly encourage you to register and complete your requirements as soon as possible. Remember your current registration is only good until November 30th.
The general certification steps are below and the full process is described on the USA Hockey officials website.
1. USA HOCKEY MEMBERSHIP REGISTRATION:
Note: This step must be completed before an official can complete Seminar Registration, the Open Book Exam, or Online Education Modules.
2. SAFE-SPORT TRAINING (if 18+ years old):
3. ONLINE EDUCATION MODULES
4. OPEN BOOK EXAM
5. CLASSROOM SEMINAR
New for 2015-16: All officials must complete membership registration before attempting to register for a classroom seminar.
Please confirm seats are available prior to attempting membership registration. (the registration fee is non-refundable). You will have to register for the seminar online because there will be no more walk ups accepted.
