2018-2019 Seminars

All new and returning Referees are required to attend a USA Hockey Officiating seminar every year in order to renew their registration. Seminars are held beginning in August and usually run through November. You are encouraged to attend a seminar as early as possible. Although additional seminars may be added as facilities become available and demand dictates, don't assume that there will be a session added that will be a better fit for your schedule. Classes do fill up, so don't wait for the last minute to sign up.

You must register with USA Hockey before you can sign up for a seminar. USA Hockey does not offer refunds for incomplete registrations, so make sure you can attend a seminar before you register and pay the registration fees. You can use this page to see the calendar of seminars for the district or go to the USA Hockey Seminar page to see the very latest seminar schedule.

Due to legal restrictions, officials under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian complete their registration. Do not attempt to "game" the system by entering an erroneous date of birth older than age 18. This will result in an error in the registration database and the Official will not receive proper credit for the seminar or completion of the other registration requirements.

New Officials: you must create a profile on the USA Hockey site in order to register for a seminar.
Returning (previously registered) Officials: you should already have a USA Hockey Referee Profile when you registered. If not, go to create a profile.

You may attend any USA Hockey seminar in any district nationwide, but make sure you attend a seminar at the same Level for which you submitted your registration application. All new Officials must attend a Level 1 seminar. You may advance one level each year, so if you were a Level 1 last season, you can register as a Level 1 (if you don't wish to advance) or Level 2 official. Again, be sure to attend the seminar at the same level as your USA Hockey registration. There is a closed book rules test administered at all Level 2, 3, and 4 seminars, so you should study the rule book before you attend one of those classes. There is also a skating skills test for Level 4 officials.

Questions? Check out the Officiating Program Information at USA Hockey or the " How to Become A Referee" page for more information about registration requirements and the seminar reservation process.


Seminars List. Reservations are required. You must go to the USA Hockey Seminars page to reserve your seat. We try to keep up with the current seminar list, but the USA Hockey Seminars Catalog will always have the latest information on seminar availability.


Seminars List. During the month of July, we'll be adding seminars as they are scheduled. Except for the Level 4 seminars, this is not the final list. This is only what is currently being planned. Dates may change. You will not be able to reserve a seat at a seminar until the new season starts on August 1. On or after August 1 you can go to the USA Hockey Seminars page to reserve your seat. The USA Hockey Seminars Catalog will always have the latest information on seminar availability.
