How to Register to Become an Official

Beginning August 1 each season you may register to become an official at USA Hockey’s Web site.

You first must click the box in the Age Requirement section that says you are currently 18 years of age or older.  Please note that USA Hockey recommends you be age 14 or older to become an official*.  If you are under 18, you will need to have a parent or guardian complete the online registration for you.

Once you’ve certified you’re 18 or older, choose “Ice Official (Referees)” as  the Registration Type.  Then continue through the rest of the four-step process.

Thank you for your interest in being an official for WAHA!

* If you are younger than 14, please contact the State Supervisor to learn more.  The WV State Supervisor is Dave Eckman and he can be reached at 304.650.5092 or daveeckman at
