The official’s registration process consists of two or three steps based on your age as of
August 1, 2018:
General registration questions should be directed to your WHOA Region Director
through e-mail. Questions regarding registration account issues, name changes, duplicate seminar registrations, etc. should be directed to Duffy Dyer (WHOA Education Coordinator

All officials who are 18 years old as of August 1, 2018, are required to have a background screening done through WHOA every two seasons per USA Hockey SafeSport Policy. If your screen was done during the 2016-17 season, you must be re-screened this season. If an official does not have a current screen, he/she is ineligible officiate any USA Hockey games.
