IMPORTANT NOTE: 2020-21 Officiating Membership registration and Classroom Seminar registration is scheduled to open on May 26, 2020. Please be advised that due to the uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 health situation, classroom seminar schedules in your area may not yet be finalized or posted. All classroom seminars must be coordinated in accordance with CDC, State and local guidelines.
In addition, there may be virtual Stay-at-Home seminars scheduled in those areas where hosting a regular classroom seminar is impossible or impractical, and all seminars (classroom and virtual) will be posted on the Officiating Classroom Seminar page and require registration to participate.
At this time, all other Officiating registration requirements will be ready and available when registration opens on May 26, 2020.
Welcome to the USA Hockey Officiating Classroom Seminar page. All USA Hockey Officials must attend a classroom seminar each year to complete their registration.
REMINDER: You must complete Membership Registration before any other step of registration.
Please use the USA Hockey Courses System catalog below to locate a seminar in your area. If you do not see a seminar scheduled in your area please contact your local USA Hockey officiating representatives.
Seminar Registration in most USA Hockey Districts is done through the online USAH Courses System, and will require a profile to complete. Your USAH Courses Profile is separate from the USAH Membership Database and Membership Registration as a USA Hockey Official does not automatically create a USAH Courses System profile.
Central District (IA, IL, KS, MO, NE & WI) seminars are hosted on a different site and you will see a link to those seminars below.
There are two helpful videos on this screen that will provide guidance to setting up your USAH Courses Profile and registering for a seminar. Please watch them before attempting to register, and remember to record your USAH Courses log-in information (email and password) someplace for future use.
All questions regarding seminar schedules and logistics should be directed to the seminar's Instructor using the contact link at the seminar's logistics page.
Note: Central District Officials must use the link below to find seminars located in the Central District (IA, IL, KS, MO, NE & WI).
PLEASE CHECK THE CLASSROOM SEMINAR SCHEDULE REGULARLY FOR UPDATES. IF YOU DO NOT SEE A SEMINAR IN YOUR AREA, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR LOCAL USAH SUPERVISOR OR SEMINAR COORDINATOR USING THE USAH OFFICIATING DIRECTORY PAGE.
REMINDER: You must complete USA Hockey Membership Registration as an official before any other step of registration.
USA Hockey has created a new Tenured Official category designed to reward officials who demonstrate dedication to the USA Hockey Officiating Program. The new status aims to recognize USA Hockey Officials who are committed to long-term officiating development and making the game of hockey better in their local community.
The first group of Tenured Officials will be established during the 2019-20 season.
Who is eligible to obtain “Tenured Official” status?
Officials who have been completely registered at Level 3 or Level 4 for the three consecutive seasons prior to attending an Officiating Symposium.
