Level 1, 2, 3 USA Hockey officiating training at Bird Arena - we hope to hold this in September as usual. Watch this space! You can also certify at any other USA Hockey officials clinic.

All Ice Officials should register with USA Hockey beginning August 1, and attend a USA Hockey training session annually. Officials must comply with all USA Hockey requirements, including completing the online Safesport requirement and the background check every TWO years. Ice officials are also required by Ohio law to complete a free online concussion education course every 3 years as well as education regarding Sudden Cardiac Arrest before their first referee assignment.  See the links below.
