How does this seminar tie into USA Hockey?

USA Hockey certification requires all officials to attend a seminar and complete an On-Ice session as part of the annual registration process.  With proper attendance and completion of our On-Ice session, this seminar will meet all of the USA Hockey seminar requirements.

What else is left to do with USA Hockey in order to begin working games?

You must register with USA Hockey prior to the seminar.  After receipt of your registration form and payment of dues, you will be sent a new rule book. You will be sent a link to the open book test. The test is 50 questions and will be graded within 24 hours of completion. You must complete online seminar modules which you will be given the link to after you register with USA Hockey.  If you are 18 or older you will need to complete the Safe Sport Module. You will also receive the link for this when you register with USA Hockey.  If you are 18 or older you will need a background check before you can take the ice for games.  That information will be provided on the HIHOA website. Once all requirements are met you will be sent your USA Hockey crest for 2017/2018 and your Level 1 certification card. USA Hockey Officials Registration Information
