Everyone should have received their Officials Registration 2017-18 Season email from USA Hockey.  You can begin your 2017-18 USA Hockey registration process now.  A couple quick reminders:

1.  All officials MUST complete registration with USA  Hockey for the 2017-18 season.
2.  All officials MUST register to attend a USA Hockey seminar, attend the seminar and take a closed book exam at the seminar. Please visit chchockey.org web page, click on Referee menu and Seminar Information on the left side panel for a complete listing of CT seminar dates and times.  You must complete your USA Hockey registration before you can regisiter for a seminar. Note Level 1 officials are exempt from taking a closed book exam...but everyone renewing should be registering as a level 2 or higher I hope!
3.  All officials MUST complete and pass USA Hockey's open book exam on line.
4.  All officials that did not complete SAFE SPORT training for the 2016-17 season MUST complete that training (your USA Hockey account profile page will indicate whether you need to complete SAFE SPORT training).
5.  All officials MUST complete all required USA Hockey on line training modules.
6.  All officials that did not complete a SCREENING/BACKGROUND CHECK for the 2016-17 season MUST submit a screening request.  Please visit CHC.org web site, click on the Referee menu item, and then click on the Referee Screening Process link on the left side panel.  This page will provide all the necessary information you need to know.  In addition, if you're unsure whether you submitted a screen request last season, there is a link provided where you can check.  IMPORTANT;  do not submit a screening request if you are not required to--so please check before you proceed.  Here's the CHC.org link:  http://chchockey.org/Page.asp?n=109835&org=CHCHOCKEY.ORG.  You must complete your USA Hockey registration before you can submit a screening request.
7.  All officials MUST submit to IHONC a membership renewal application with payment.  The renewal application pdf document is now available on the ihonc.org web page under the Forms section.  This is available for public viewing, so even if you forgot your IHONC web account id or password, you can still download the form to print.  We will again require all renewal applications be mailed with payment (do not send cash).  Please don't wait until the last minute to get this accomplished!  

All 7 of the above steps need to be fully completed by November 30, 2017.  If you do not complete all 7 action items, you will not be eligible to officiate USA Hockey sanctioned games starting on December 1st until IHONC receives confirmation from USA Hockey (via CT RIC Barry Zalcman) and/or until IHONC receives your renewal application with payment.
