SO YOU WANT TO BE A REFEREE

The following highlights the steps required to become both a USAH registered hockey official and what the HRACT requires.  Please note that HRACT abides by the minimum standards set by USAH but we require an on ice evaluation for all new officials independent of the USAH process and we at the HRACT are the final arbiters of who can work for the association.  Please note that passage of the USAH process does not automatically qualify one to work travel hockey games.  Our clientele is demanding and we do our best to provide them with the best referees we can.  Our schedulers along with the board have the responsibility and the authority to adjust the level that referee is capable of working at for the clients we represent.
