USA Hockey offers USA Hockey summer training camps designed to improve your officiating skills and prepare you for more challenging game assignments. The training camps provide on-ice instruction to focus on skating skills and situational awareness. Classroom sessions expand on the philosophy and science of officiating and offer an opportunity to understand how to apply the rules of ice hockey in game situations.
