Dear Grand Rapids Hockey Families –
Hope everyone is enjoying their summer in beautiful West Michigan… As we move closer to the 2018/2019 hockey season, I want to communicate another opportunity for your player that exists within the hockey world. It is the third team on the ice. The officials!
Each year a USA Hockey Officiating seminar is hosted at Patterson Ice Center. The seminar will be on Saturday, September 8th from 8:30am to 3:00pm. I would like to personally invite your player, to attend and see what the USA Hockey Officiating program is about. Registration takes place on usahockey.com under the “officials” tab. Even if you decide not to register, feel free to attend to check it out! Benefits of being an official are: Free ice time, each official is paid between $25/$35 per game, pick your own hours, opportunity to learn the rules and most importantly have fun!!
A few questions I am asked about the program:
How old does my child have to be to referee? ● USA Hockey does not have a minimum age for officials. Officials are not to work games of their own age classification or higher. Generally, officials can successfully officiate as young as age 10.
How does the scheduling process work? ● Each association has it’s own “scheduler” who schedules officials for the games. At the seminar I will talk about the specific process and hand out a list of schedulers in the Greater Grand Rapids Area.
How many games will my official work during the season? ● It depends on his or her availability. Most new officials will work cross-ice jamborees in order to gain experience. After December, based on ability/availability your official may referee Squirt house games and other lower level games to gain experience.
What are the basic costs to referee? ● Each official must register with USA Hockey. New official’s registration is $35. Referee jersey = $65, BLACK helmet (with visor) $75 to $100, black trousers = $30, hockey skates (no goalie skates). Whistle = $25 *all of these are estimates and can be done more cost effectively. I will talk about some referee “hacks” at the seminar.
If you would like more information or have questions about becoming an official, please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or my cell at 248.910.6927. See you at the rink!
