Referee registration is starting a little bit early this year! USA Hockey will open officiating registration for the 2019-20 season on June 3rd. Along with the early registration, the 2019-20 season will also bring earlier seminars. If you plan to be a referee for the 2019-20 season make sure you review the seminar dates and save the date on your calendar now.
Please visit https://www.usahockey.com/registrationrules for more information on the registration process and its requirements. Note that there is no minimum age to become an official, however we do recommend that potential officials wait until the age of 15 or 16 before registering as a referee. History has shown us that new officials waiting until the age of 15 or 16 to start officiating have a much better experience and are much more likely to return for a second season.
If you have any questions abut the USA Hockey registration process for officials please reach out to Bryan Eisentraut, Arizona's Supervisor of Officials for USA Hockey at Bryan.Eisentraut@gmail.com.
