Submission of USA Hockey Officiating Membership applications for the 2024-25 Season begins on June 3, 2024 and ends after October 31, 2024.

All 2024-25 Officiating Memberships must be completed by December 31, 2024. No referee cards and sweater crests will be issued after this date.

USA Hockey Officiating Membership is valid for the entire current season in any district or state in the United States, and membership within any local officials association or local hockey league is not required for USA Hockey Officiating Program membership.

Officials will only need to register online, attend an online virtual seminar and complete the required background check and SafeSport training, if it is age required. Officials will not need to complete a separate rules exam or modules as part of the process for the 2024-25 season.

Once the online Membership Registration application has been submitted, an official cannot change the registration level they haveĀ applied for.
