Georgia State Supervisor Change

Georgia State Supervisor and Chet Stewart Award winner Bob Klein has announced that he is stepping down from his position. Bob has played an instrumental role in the growth of the officiating program in the State of Georgia since becoming state supervisor. “While we will miss his presence going forward, he has left a great legacy for the future”, said Jim Dewhirst, Southeastern District RIC. “I sincerely appreciate his efforts and friendship over the years.”

To replace Bob, Paul Carnathan has been appointed as the new Georgia State Supervisor. Paul has been an active member of USA Hockey for 25 years as an on-ice official. He has attended all USA Hockey camps as a participant and is now on the national Staff as an instructor as well as the Level 4 instructor in the Southeastern District. He has officiated multiple international assignments as well as minor professional and collegiate hockey, including the 2016 Frozen Four. “Paul bring a lot of energy and experience to his new role”, added Dewhirst. “He will be a great asset to the officiating program in Georgia and the Southeastern District.” Paul's appointment is effective immediately and he can be reached at Georgia@southeastrefs.org.


Seminar Instructors

Seminar season will soon be upon us. USA Hockey Officiating Education seminars are held each year between August and November. The seminars are taught by volunteer instructors who have completed the USA Hockey Instructor Training Camp. Prospective instructors are selected by the District Referee-in-Chief to attend the training camps held in Lake Plaid, NY and Colorado Springs, CO.

If you are interested in volunteering to be a USA Hockey seminar instructor, you can read more about the USA Hockey Seminar Instructor Training Program on the USA Hockey webiste. We will post announcements here and on the Training Page about applying for Instructor Training Camp. Applications are usually due in early March for the camps held in April and May. Contact your State Supervisor of Officials for more information or talk to a seminar instructor when you go to your seminar this fall.
