The fundamental purpose of a District Officiating Seminar is to bring the essentials of the week-long USA Hockey Development Camps to local areas throughout the country. The seminars are targeted at experienced officials who are unable to attend a USA Hockey Summer Development Camp. The seminar will feature intensive skating instruction and focus on advanced officiating mechanics and judgment.
All completely registered officials are welcome to apply. However, a minimum of 3-4 years of experience is preferred.
Attendance at this seminar will satisfy the USA Hockey Officiating Program's annual local seminar attendance requirement (excluding Level 4). The Level 2 & 3 Closed-Book Exams will be administered as part of the seminar program. Full officiating equipment (including helmet) must be worn at all on-ice sessions.
You must be a completely registered USA Hockey Official to attend this program.
$50.00 per person registration fee payable to “USA HOCKEY OFFICIATING”. Cost includes all ice time, daily facility usage, instruction, and seminar supplies/handouts. This does not include hotel room and meal costs. The registration fee is nonrefundable, except in cases where an application cannot be accepted because the enrollment limit has been reached.

Instructors will be selected and assigned by the USA Hockey National Officiating Program. Primary instructors will be selected from the USA Hockey Training Staff, which includes top American officials who officiate at professional, college, and international levels.
