Officiating Program

Vermont will hold 3 seminars. Any official regardless of level, with the exception of Level 4, can attend any of these. Those officials wishing to be certified at Level 4 must attend a special Level 4 Seminar. Information on Level 4 is available by contacting Mike Hickey, VT Supervisor of Officials 

You must attend the entire seminar in order to receive credit. There is no charge for the seminar, but each official will need to pre-register for the seminar by going to www.usahockey.com/officialseminarsEach official is required to be in full officiating uniform except new officials. New officials should have skates, helmet and whistle.

Returning officials receive their registration reminder material in the mail directly from USA Hockey’s National office. All officials must participate in the seminar skate regardless of level and previous experience
