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. All officials, I cannot assign games to officials who are not complete, so get those tests done and watch those online modules!
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.
It is important to have off-ice officials. Each team should have 3-4 adults who know how to run the clock and fill out a score sheet.
It is really not that difficult and is a real help to your team and association. Don't leave it to that one guy who's been doing it all season, what happens if he gets sick?
If your team would like a training session, a time could be arranged during a practice. Contact Marc Norton - email@example.com.
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 your official's profile page, a link to the game report page is there. In the case of a match penalty contact Eric Froberg (D8 RIC) firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP before filing your report.
You must have the head coach's 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. We can't make them sign the sheet, but if they won't let me know and I'll file a complaint with the league.
