Calling all High School and College Students!
I am Kevin Donovan the Referee-In-Chief for USA hockey for the State of MA.
I am reaching out to all the leagues and organizations in MA, and was hoping maybe you could also help us on the officiating side of the game.
As we know the game of ice hockey has grown over the years and continues to grow. We on the officiating side of the game need to also grow to keep up with the growth and now that we use more of the 3 and 4 person officiating crews at the higher levels are in need of more officials.
So I am reaching out to you to help us grow the officiating program. To become an official you need to be 14 years old, attend a usa hockey officials seminar, take the open book test and complete the online modules.
We have all that information on our website massofficials.com
Here are the dates of our Level 1 seminars
Haverhill 8/15 --Level 1
Shrewsbury 8/25 - Level 1
Agawam 8/26 - Level 1
Andover 9/8 -- Level 1
Hyannis 9/22 -- Level 1
Canton 10/13 -- Level 1
I have attached a flyer that you can email to the anybody you have in a database to help us recruit. We also need more female official as the girls and women's game has some of the largest growth.
