    Officiating Retention

    It is becoming harder and harder to recruit and retain officials for all sports. USA Hockey is taking the steps to be a leader in the change of culture when it comes to abuse of official. USA Hockey established a task force to investigate abuse of official across the country and they presented their findings at the 2020 USA Hockey Winter Meetings. The results were staggering.! Please see the task forces presentation below.

    MAHA let's be leaders and be in fore front of changing the culture when it comes to abuse of official!

    Declaration of Safety, Fair Play and Respect.
    The video to the right shares examples of acceptable and unacceptable body checking to help educate all involved in the sport as to the intent of the Declaration, which is focused on player safety and moving our sport forward.

    It should be noted that USA Hockey supports legal body contact and body checking. The culture shift is an on-going effort to eliminate 1) hits from behind, 2) late hits and 3) hits to the head by more clearly defining body checking.
