Hello Potential/Returning Official:
Due to Covid-19 and varying restrictions nationwide, our seminar information is a bit delayed in publication. Discussion is currently underway, and we expect some parameters and information to come soon; most likely by early July. We WILL have officiating seminars this year.
In the meantime, please register with USA Hockey. You can also complete other requirements, such as the online learning modules, Safesport screening, and background screening. Rest assured, we will post ALL seminar information as soon as we are able. Until then, we are here to help with any other steps in the registration process.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to an exciting season ahead!
