New Officials who attended the January 3rd Seminar Please Note: make sure I get your contact information and a completed W-4 so you can get paid. I need these before I can assign games!
I'm getting emails from USA Hockey about having a large number of officials that are not fully registered yet. Let's get our registrations done for the 2014-15 season ASAP!! We have some district tournaments coming up end of January, mid February. I cannot use incomplete officials for these.
Thanks for getting two of the jerseys back. Still missing at least one or two others. I still strongly urge you to purchase your own. You can usually get 1/2 to 1/4 of your money back depending on age and condition when you don't need it any more..
To all high school players, please dress in the referee room for games you are officiating. It is better for your partners and the guys before and after your games. It is also a condition of your employment (if you get my drift.)
Keep up the good work, let's look sharp and hustle out there, boys!
The Calumet Hockey Association only employs officials that are registered with USA Hockey. Registration at USAHockey.com usually opens August 1st. In order to become an official, the following requirements must be met:

Below you will find a link for a downloadable pdf of the contact sheet and MI-W4 tax form.
If you want me to assign you games, I will need your contact information. Assignments are given via email, unless you specifically tell me to call. The email should be one that you check often and list the best phone number(s) at which you can be reached. (Under 18 officials please get your parents permission as to which phone and email you give me.)
New officials, I cannot, and will not assign games until I get the W-4. I cannot assign games to officials who are not complete, so get those tests done and watch those online modules, boys!
Note: Normally I send out assignments by Sunday afternoon or Monday morning. If I do not get a reply by Tuesday night I will assign the game to someone else.
If you should happen to assess a game misconduct or match penalty you must submit an online game report within 48 hours. Go to the Michigan Referee-in-Chief's web page, the instructions for finding the game report page are there. (The link for the report page is on your referee status page at usahockey.com)
You must have the head coaches phone numbers. It will be best if you have them put their phone number on the score sheet before the game starts.
