With the exception of the 3 guys waiting for slo-puck checks, all others were mailed yesterday, no foolin'. Thanks for your dedication and hard work this season.
As a reminder you do have until May to complete if you want to move up a level next year. With what happened to the CCJHA we will be more strict about using completed, registered officials in the future. I would strongly suggest if you want to do any games in the early '15-'16 season you need to get your registration complete.
I'm looking for a couple more adults in addition to younger guys for next season as well. If you don't think you can do this job, you have no excuse. If I can do it, anyone can.
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:
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.michiganreferee.com/
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 CEP number. Make sure it is on the score sheet before the game starts. The player's name and your partners are part of a pull down menu.
