The Missouri Ice Hockey Officials Association, the St. Louis Blues and the St. Louis Lady Cyclones are teaming up to conduct a mid-season seminar for ice hockey officials. The clinic, which will take place on January 6, 2019, will provide first-year Level 1 officials and returning Level 2 officials the opportunity to complete their USA Hockey seminar requirement at the Enterprise Center. Members of the St. Louis Lady Cyclones will be eligible for a discounted seminar registration fee.
“The growth of hockey in St. Louis, particularly girls hockey, has resulted in the need to recruit and educate more qualified referees,” said Chris Johnson, St. Louis Lady Cyclones President. “We are excited to partner with MIHOA and to help them achieve their goal of increasing the pool of qualified officials in the St. Louis region.”
This event is ideal for hockey players, coaches, parents and others who are interested in giving back to the game by becoming a USA Hockey certified official. To be eligible, applicants must be at least 13 years old on or before December 31, 2018. NOTE: this seminar is open to male and female participants.
