USA Hockey Tenured Officials
USA Hockey has added the ability for Referees to select the districts where
they can be assigned to work games. Your completed USA Hockey registration entitles you
to officiate any USA Hockey-sanctioned game nationwide. Your registration is
based on your home address. You are automatically registered you in your home
district, but if you work games in another district, you can add that district to
your USA Hockey Profile.
This will release your registration information to assigners in that district so
they can verify your eligibility to work games.
For example, if you live in West Virginia, you will be registered in the
Mid-American district. If you work games in Maryland, you should add the
Southeastern District to your profile. A list of the USA Hockey national
districts can be found in the
USA Hockey Directory.
We have full instructions on how to update your profile on our
USA Hockey does not maintain background screening information, so you are
still responsible for sending your background screening to the Screening
Coordinator for the other districts. Instructions for the Southeastern District
background screening can be found on our
