Officials Central District Level 4 Seminar policy

Central District Level 4 Seminar policy

Central District Level 4 Seminar Policy

• Starting this year at each Level 4 seminar in the Central District the Level 4 skating exam will be given before the Level 4 closed book exam.
• Any 4 applicant who scores a 22 or less on their Level 4 skating exam will be able to take ONLY the Level 3 Closed Book Exam. This means that they would only be able to miss 10 questions out of 50 and remain a Level 3 official. If they miss more than 10 questions they will be reclassified to Level 2.
• The skating test contains 27 elements with 3 bonus points for speed. An official who scores a 22 on this test would have to miss 5 elements and receive no bonus points for speed.

1.5 Minute Penalties in MWAHA

 

MWAHA Reps and Association Presidents
A change in Rule 402 allows Affiliates or governing bodies to use a 1.5 minute minor penalty for games in which the periods are 15 minutes or less.
The MWAHA Executive Board has approved use of this rule as follows;
Motion 1; The MWAHA will allow leagues sanctioned by the MWAHA to designate that 1.5 minute penalties will be used in games that have periods of 15 minutes or less.
Motion 2; The MWAHA will allow the home team within any MWAHA area association to designate that 1.5 minute penalties can be used in games that have periods of 15 minutes or less. The sanctioned MWAHA Leagues ruling takes priority.
Note; the three Leagues sanctioned within the MWAHA include the Mid-West League, Mid-West High School League and the Nebraska House League.
