Welcome To New York State Amateur Hockey Association's Officiating Program

NOTE: OFFICIALS MUST BE AT LEAST 14 YEARS OLD TO OFFICIATE IN NEW YORK STATE.

Dear Officials: 

Welcome to the 2013 – 2014 season!

The off season has certainly been a busy one for USA Hockey and the NYSAHA.

I encourage you to register with USA Hockey and select the seminar of your choice as soon as possible.  

DON’T GET SHUT OUT….REGISTER FOR YOUR SEMINAR EARLY!!!! *************************************************************************************
The USA Hockey annual congress produced several rule changes that will have a huge impact on our game. Below are the most significant…you will review them in depth at your seminar.  

Rule 603 (Boarding), Rule 607 (Charging) and Rule 620 (Head Contact)
Penalty options for the above are as follows:
MINOR PLUS MISCONDUCT, MAJOR PLUS GAME MISCONDUCT OR MATCH PENALTY.
*************************************************************************************      
SAFE SPORT TRAINING

Effective this season is the Safe Sport Training Module that all officials must complete if you are 18 years of age as of December 31, 2013 AND you would like to be considered to officiate state and national tournaments.  The Safe Sport Training Module is an on line program consisting of a series of questions followed by a quiz which must be submitted. Please retain proof of your submission.               

                YOU MUST COMPLETE THIS PROGRAM BY DECEMBER 31, 2013!!!! *************************************************************************************
SCREENING 

Please note if you are 18 years of age (or turning 18 during the season) you are required to be screened by USA Hockey. Please make sure you fulfill this requirement as soon as possible as you will not be able to officiate after December 31, 2013. NOTE – THOSE OFFICIALS SCREENED IN 2010/2011 MUST BE SCREENED THIS SEASON!!!!

*************************************************************************************
Good luck this season and please don’t hesitate to contact me or any of my staff members if you need anything!
