I would like to thank you all for your hard work and giving your time to make this season go smoothly. It was an honor to work with you. I look forward to the 2013-14 season, the 100th year of the Colosseum.
To save me time I will be making game assignments differently next season. In a nutshell here is how it will work. Dan Giachino puts the schedule on the Calumet Hockey Website usually a week ahead of time. Look the schedule over, CHA games have a red background. See what games match your ability and availability and send me an email for "all" the games you are willing and able to do. If you don't have access to email, call met. Do this before monday morning. I will choose who does what game, based on skill and an attempt to balance out the number of games each official gets. You will get your assignments via email and must confirm no later than wednesday morning.
The Calumet Hockey Association only employs officials that are registered with USA Hockey. USA Hockey registers officials in one of four levels. Depending upon experience and testing, officials are classified as Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, or Level 4. In order to become a registered official, the following requirements must be met:
If you would like more information or have questions about becoming an official or would like to know what to expect, please contact Marc. Business phone: 337-1300; cell: 370-1300; email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Information regarding registration, seminar schedules, seminar registration and the background check may be found at this website: http://www.usahockey.com/michigan_ric/
Below you will find a link for a contact sheet and MI-W4 tax form.
If you want me to assign you games, I will need your contact information. The email should be one that you check often and list the best phone at which I can reach you. (Under 18 officials let your parents know what number and email you are giving me.)
New officials, I cannot assign games until I get the W-4.
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, there is a link on the left hand side for Online Game Reports.
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.
