If you have a friend who wanted to ref but missed the seminar in October, we are planning to have another one. Have them shoot me an email or watch this web page for details on when and where.
Over the holidays, let's get our registrations complete!
Completed referees will get first call for assignments.
USA Hockey has put the registration "rules" on the officials page of their website. You can sign in to your status/profile page on the USA Hockey website and it will tell you what you have completed and what is still lacking in your registration process. If you have specific questions let me know. The answers to the open book test are in your rule book and basic manual.
Keep up the good work, let's look sharp 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:
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 phone numbers. It will be best if you have them put their phone number on the score sheet before the game starts.
