To: ALL NYSAHA OFFICIALS
As the 2021 — 2022 season is winding down I hope that it was a great one for you. Thank you for your efforts in covering the many number of games that were played. With a bunch of new rules and a major shortage of officials we were great. In many cases there were games with 1 official on the ice...somehow we got through it. Some of you will have the opportunity to work the NYSAHA State Tournaments in the Buffalo area and/or the USA Hockey National Tournaments which will take place in several cities around the country. Those of you who were new to the Officiating Program I hope you enjoyed your first season and you will be with us for many years to come. I am happy to announce that after a 2 year hiatus the NYSAHA Officiating Program Development Camp will be taking place at SUNY Oswego in late June. The camp is structured primarily for completely registered Level 1 and Level 2 officials. An email will be going out to that group in the near future. Please be on the lookout for it. Once again thank you for your dedication and commitment to the Officiating Program and keep working hard.
Mike Shapey, NYSAHA Referee in Chief
