All officials are required to attend one of the local seminars to become eligible to officiate USA Hockey games. You must bring a notepad, a pencil, skates, whistle, helmet, and wind suit. It is also encouraged to bring a beverage or snack to the seminar.
All questions relating to pay should be directed to Jeff Ball or Jeremy Melander. Their contact information is located below.
However, in order to receive payment from Bismarck Hockey Boosters, you MUST complete the Referee Registration and complete the below forms (W-9 and Direct Deposit). The link for registration is below!
For those looking to start refereeing hockey or those who are needing and wanting the next level, dates and times for upcoming Referee Clinics will be posted here so check back soon for more information.
Officials on the ice will need a helmet, skates, and recommended bringing a whistle if you have one.
Look on the USA Hockey website under the officials tab for other clinics in the area and for further information and requirements.
USA Hockey has implemented online modules. You do not have to complete these prior to the seminar, but it is HIGHLY recommended to complete certain course activities. I know this may sound like USA Hockey trying to make more “work” for us, but instead they want the seminars to be shorter and give supervisors the opportunity to discuss other areas. IF YOU DO NOT GO THROUGH THE ONLINE MODULES YOU WILL NOT GET YOUR CREST AND CARD!
