Seminar and Member Registration

Important News for the 2015-2016 Season

REGISTRATION CHANGES
Starting with the 2015-16 season you must register with USAH as an on-ice official before you can enroll in a seminar through the USA Hockey website. Remember that seats are limited in each seminar so it is important that you register with USA Hockey early so you can reserve your seminar seat!
 
Remember that your USA Hockey certification expires on November 30th, 2015. That means you need to have all of your registration requirements for the 2015-16 season complete in order to be eligible to work USA Hockey sanctioned games starting December 1st.
 
WHICH LEVEL SEMINAR SHOULD I ATTEND?
I highly recommend that you attend a seminar specifically for the level at which you intend to register. There are many benefits that come with attending the appropriate seminar level instead of a lower level seminar. First, level 2 and 3 seminars have shorter in-person seminar requirements. The level 3 seminar also does not have an on-ice session. In addition, Level 2 and Level 3 seminars will engage in more advanced topics and discussions as compared to the ‘basics’ taught for new officials at a Level 1 seminar.
 
All new officials will need to register at Level 1 with USA Hockey and attend a Level 1 seminar.
 
STUDYING FOR THE CLOSED BOOK EXAMS
As always, you will want to study up for the closed book exams for Level 2, 3, and 4. Level 2 officials will want to pay particular attention to the Basic Officiating Manual. Approximately 95% of questions on the Level 2 closed book test come directly from the Basic Officiating Manual. The other 5% come from the USAH Rulebook. Level 3 officials will also want to read the Basic Officials Manual but will have more questions from the USAH Rule Book.
