2018-19 A Team Coaches Announced
We are excited to announce the A team coaches for the Bantam, PeeWee, and Squirt A teams for the 2018-19 season.  Mite coaches will be named after tryout evaluations.
 
Our Head Coaches are selected by a committee comprised of the Director of Coaches, the Vice President of On-Ice Operations, and the appropriate Division Director.  Simsbury Youth Hockey has always prided itself on the high caliber of coaches who volunteer in our program.   Across all teams, our coaches' unwavering commitment to player development and teaching the game is what makes SYHA one of the strongest programs in Connecticut.  
 
Looking to the season ahead, we are thrilled to have acquired impressive volunteer talent and expertise to strengthen our coaching bench even further:
 
Squirt A - Rob Martin
PeeWee A - Jim McCormick
Bantam A - Keith Balsewicz

2018-19 Officiating Registration Information

2018-19 OFFICIATING REGISTRATION INFORMATION FOR PLAYERS

Registration begins August 1, 2018.

To completely register with USA Hockey as an official you need to complete five steps each year (go to Registration Tips for more information):

1. USA HOCKEY MEMBERSHIP REGISTRATION:

  • Note: This step must be completed before an official can complete Seminar Registration, the Open Book Exam, or Online Education Modules.
  • Go to USAHockey.com. At the homepage you will click on “Member Registration” under the OFFICIALS tab and register as an Ice Official. This is where you will provide us with your personal information for our database and pay your annual membership fee.
  • Once you are registered, you will receive a confirmation email within 24-hours and a copy of the USA Hockey Playing Rules & Casebook (new officials and Rule Change Seasons only) within a week along with some additional information to help you along with the registration process.
  • You will also receive an email giving you information (including your USAH Officiating Number) relating to completing your online “Open Book Exam”.

 

2. CLASSROOM SEMINAR (Once you are registered as an official)


REMINDER: All officials must complete membership registration before attempting to register for a classroom seminar. Please confirm seats are available prior to attempting membership registration (the registration fee is non-refundable).

All USA Hockey Officials must attend a USA Hockey Officiating Seminar annually. To find one in your area, go to the “Seminars” page at the Officials section of USAHockey.com. You will need a USAHockey.com website profile to access the seminar schedule. Once prompted, either sign-in to USAHockey.com or to create an Online Profile:

  1. Click the “Registration Status” link under the OFFICIALS tab.
  2. Select “Need to create a login profile?”, and follow the instructions and enter the required data-fields to set-up your profile.
  • Note: This process does not register you as a member with USA Hockey. You will pay no registration fee and your membership information will not be affected.
  • Note 2: In order for your USA Hockey.com profile to extract accurate information from the Officiating Program membership database, your online profile….
  1. First Name
  2. Last Name
  3. Date-of-Birth

must match your Membership Registration information exactly. If you registered with USA Hockey as Michael, you must create your online profile with the exact same name (not Mike).

After your profile is created and saved, you will automatically be directed to the USAH Online Registration System. You are now ready to sign up for a seminar.

Most seminars are scheduled between late August and early November (the schedules begin to appear online starting in July), and any questions about the seminars should be directed to your USA Hockey Staff (following the links at the main Directory under Officials Materials). We strongly recommend you make sure you can attend a seminar before you begin the registration process (the fee is non-refundable), and do not wait long to register since some seminars do fill up very quickly.

3.  SAFE-SPORT TRAINING (if 18+ years old):

All officials who are 18 years-of-age or older must complete the United States Olympic Committee SafeSport training program. This online based program trains coaches, officials, and key volunteers in detecting and preventing detrimental behavior (hazing, abuse, etc.) off the playing surface. Once completed, the training certification is good for two years before recertification is required. This training must be completed in addition to your USA Hockey Local Affiliate Background Checks.

4. ONLINE EDUCATION MODULES

Once registered with USA Hockey, you will receive instructions regarding the online Officiating Education module program. Access to the Online Education System will be granted 24-hours after membership registration.

The Online Education modules are a mixture of required and elective-menu topics that teach fundamental skills of officiating using video examples, animation, and knowledge-based testing. You must complete your required hours of training to receive your card and crest.

Note: A list of all module categories will be listed at the main Courses page in the Online Education System. All officials must complete ALL six course categories (Pre-Required, Required, Positioning, Procedures, Penalty Criteria, & General) to complete training.

5. OPEN BOOK EXAM

Go to the “Open Book Exam” page at the Officials section of USAHockey.com and follow the steps to begin your online exam. The exam is designed to allow you to go at your own pace. You may answer all questions at once, or answer a few questions every day until it is completed. Please review all answers before submitting it to the National Office. The exam will be accessible 24-hours after membership registration, and we strongly encourage you to wait until you receive your Rulebook and attend your seminar (see below) before attempting to take the test.
