Southeastern District Officiating Seminar

Save the date for the 2019 Southeastern District Officiating Seminar (DOS). The District Officiating Seminar is an intensive three-day seminar and training session for those who are seeking to improve their officiating skills in order to work at the higher levels of the game. DOS participation can also help you compete for selection to USA Hockey advanced summer camps.

The DOS is held every other year. The location rotates across all Southeastern District states. The 2019 Southeastern District Officiating Seminar is tentatively scheduled for August 2-4, 2019 in Charleston, SC. We will have more information here on the web site as the DOS preparations are finalized.

New Registration Dates

USA Hockey has announced a trial program moving the start of Referee registration to June 3 instead of the traditional August 1 start date. This will enable districts to hold Officiating seminars earlier in the season and allow you to complete your 2019-2020 registration renewal well before the November 30 due date. New Officials will be able to complete their registration sooner and not have to wait for August seminars.

This is a major change to the registration process and details are still being determined. We should know more after the USA Hockey Annual Meeting in early June and we'll keep you updated here on the web site. Note, this Registration date change does not impact your Background Screening date requirement. New screenings cannot begin until August 1st.

Game Reports

In a recent Stripes Newsletter article, Matt Leaf, USA Hockey Director of Officiating Education, discussed the importance of game reports. He explained that the USA Hockey online game reporting system is a key tool in enforcing the new progressive suspension rules. It is imperative that Officials submit timely and accurate game reports so players and coaches are held accountable for their actions. You can read the full article at the USA Hockey website.

We have posted a step-by-step guide to incident reporting here. Note that the USA Hockey incident reporting system is used for all events. An assault on an Official requires an additional online report to be filed using the Southeastern District Assault Report system.

Twenty-Eight Americans Chosen to Officiate IIHF Events

The International Ice Hockey Federation sponsors several International tournaments at locations across the globe.

The list includes Erika Greenen of Nashville, TN who was assigned to the Women's World University Games in Krasnoyarsk, Russia in early March and former Southeastern District Official, Jennifer Cameron, working the 2019 IIHF Ice Hockey Women's World Championship in Dumfries, United Kingdom in April.
