1017-18 Seminar Scheduled
If you missed the Calumet Seminar there are two this coming weekend, the 14th in Escanabe and the 15th in Iron Mountain. The other U.P. seminar is St. Ignace on the 21st.
There may be an additional seminar held in November. I'll post when I know details. If you can't make any of the above and are interested in the November one please send me an email and I'll forward it on to Mr. Parmentier.
We Need Officials
If you have any passion for the game of hockey please consider being an on ice official.
Some things you'll need is a a love for the game; some skating ability (you can learn as you go like I did); and a willingness to learn.
Our need is pretty critical. I'd like to have 4-6 new/younger persons to work the mite games. We will also have a real need for older ages as well to fill a number of gaps in our officiating core.
You'll see below what is necessary in order to register as an official. If you have specific questions email me or give me a call. email@example.com or 337-1300 during business hours.
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.

Below you will find a link for a downloadable pdf of the contact sheet and MI-W4 tax form. I have to have one to assign you games, the other to pay you.
Assignments are normally given via email, unless you specifically tell me to text or 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 Monday afternoon. 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, match penalty or a major penalty that falls under rule 411, 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. Also ensure that the head coach has signed the score sheet before the game starts.
