Officiating Classroom Seminars

Welcome to the USA Hockey Officiating Classroom Seminar page. All USA Hockey Officials must attend a seminar each season to complete their registration. Please use the USA Hockey Courses System catalog below to locate a seminar in your area.

REMINDER: You must complete Membership Registration before registering for a seminar.

Classroom Seminar registration is completed through the online USA Hockey Courses System, and will require a profile to complete (Note: USA Hockey Membership Registration as an ice hockey official does not automatically create a USAH Courses System profile).

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.

An official is not required to attend a seminar in their own USAH District or state, however it is strongly recommended that new Level 1 Officials attend a local seminar to learn about Officiating Associations, game assignments, mentor programs and other important information relative to their local area.

Level 4 Officials must attend a Level 4 seminar to receive proper attendance credit.

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 in the USAH Courses System.
