The United States Hockey League today announced the appointment of Bob Fallen as President and Commissioner.  Fallen follows Skip Prince who led the USHL for six momentous years during which the League experienced significant growth in business and hockey operations, along with achieving record numbers in player development.  Fallen is being formally introduced today during a media teleconference.

With professional experience spanning nearly three decades in sports marketing, publishing, sales, media relations, and management, Fallen assumed the League’s leadership position on June 1.  He is just the third commissioner for the USHL in the past 20 years. 

“I am thrilled with the opportunity to lead the finest junior hockey league in the world,” said Fallen. “The foundation built by my predecessors, league owners, and the stakeholders throughout the hockey industry have made the USHL an important step along the developmental path for players, coaches, and officials.  I look forward to working with our staff, aligned partners, and the international hockey community at-large to build upon our success.”

NEW ERA IN OFFICIATING EDUCATION

07/18/2014, 9:15pm EDT
By USA Hockey Officiating Program

Starting with the upcoming season, USA Hockey is launching a new online curriculum in our Officiating Education Program. In addition to the standard registration requirements, including application, open and closed book testing and attendance at a USA Hockey Officiating Seminar, every official must complete the online material prior to receiving their card and crest for 2014-15.

The online curriculum is designed to enhance educational experience with accurate and consistent officiating information. The online modules will be broken down into three categories. The first two requirements will include general and level-specific presentations. The third category will have elective courses from a variety of topics such as positioning, procedures, penalty criteria and the mental game. These electives will be level-specific and allow you to hone your officiating skills in areas you select.

The length of each presentation will vary depending on content and focus. The majority of the presentations will fall in the 5- to 10-minute range, followed by a short quiz reviewing the content. The entire online curriculum will take 3-5 hours to complete, depending on the level of the official. The in-person seminar each official will be required to attend will be abbreviated and designed to supplement the material presented in the online curriculum.

Instructions on accessing the online seminar will be sent to you upon receiving your USA Hockey application. The curriculum will be accessed through your USAHockey.com profile and can be completed at your leisure, meaning you can log out and log back in to pick up where you left off. Some presentations are designed to be viewed before attending the seminar as a means to improve the overall seminar experience. These will be highlighted for your consideration.

Officials will find this new system to be beneficial and it will make your overall USA Hockey experience a more valuable one.  Let’s get the season off to a great start!
