Welcome

POINTS OF EMPHASIS

  • Rules Enforcement Standard

    • The Beat Goes On…

    • New USA Hockey Enforcement Standard Video

  • Hitting From Behind

    • Penalize Every Time

    • More Common with New Enforcement Standard.ACHA Options:

      Open Ice: Minor or Major penalty

      Into boards or goal cage: Major + GM, or DQ

      -- No Minor + Misconduct Option --


Welcome

POINTS OF EMPHASIS (cont.)

  • Goalkeeper Interference from Opposing Player

    • Interference

    • From NCAA Rule Book: ”attacking players are not allowed to enter the goal crease and disrupt the goalkeeper from playing the position”

  • Freezing the Puck - - Goalkeeper

    • Keep the Puck Moving – within reason.

    • Let Goaltenders Know What To Expect


Welcome

OFFICIATING SYSTEM

  • 3 Man System: 1 Referee & 2 Assistant Referees

  • Referee’s Duties

    • Same as 1 Ref & 2 Linesman System

  • Assistant Referee’s Duties

    • Linesman + Situational Penalty Calls.


Welcome

POSITIONING

  • Referee & Assistant Referees

    • Traditional Positioning for 1 Ref, 2 Linesman System


Welcome

From 2006-2008

NCAA Rule Book


Welcome

PENALTY CALLING

  • Referee

    • Calls majority of the penalties

  • Assistant Referee (from NCAA Rule Book)

    The prime responsibility to call penalties resides with the referee. It is expected that assistant referees will call major penalties, minor penalties behind the play, and flagrant minor penalties (not observed by the referee), particularly those that deny a scoring opportunity or could lead to injury or an altercation, regardless of where they occur on the ice surface.


Welcome

PENALTY CALLING

  • AR Penalty Call Guidelines:

    • Things away from the view of the referee – obvious.

    • Treat scrambles in front of the net the like 2-man system. Referee watches play near the puck, near AR watches for altercations in front of the net.

    • Know where referee is and what their angle is.

    • Make the ‘have-to-be-made’ calls.


Welcome

PENALTY CALLING

  • Assistant Referee Penalty Calling Procedure:

    • Arm straight up – same Referee (or 2-man).

    • After whistle, keep arm straight up until everyone knows you made the call.

    • Skate to the Referee and report and the penalty - with signal.

    • Be Assertive


Welcome

LINE CHANGE PROCEDURE

  • Referee

    • 5-8-5 NCAA sequence

    • During first ‘5’ – get visible

    • Control Every Change, Start-to-Finish.

  • Assistant Referees

    • Front AR retrieves the puck and goes to faceoff spot.

    • Back AR goes “with the change” as far as near bench.

    • Referee’s Arm Down -- Blow Whistle Sharply

    • Follow face-off Procedures


Welcome

FACE-OFF PROCEDURE

  • Assistant Referees

    • Develop a Consistent Rapport with the Centers

    • Be Firm & Fair

    • Don’t Order the Players – Talk to them

    • If Players Delay the Face-off, Eject the Center.

      Examples

      • Late change attempt not permitted by referee.

      • Players not moving entirely out of circle when instructed


Welcome

FACE-OFF PROCEDURE (cont.)

  • Assistant Referees

    • Procedure for ejecting centers:

    • Stand up, extend arm toward center being removed, request new center.

    • Once old center moves away, blow whistle sharply to indicate you’re ready.

    • Be consistent throughout game.


Welcome

GAME MANAGEMENT

  • Key Elements for All Game Officials

    • Communication

    • Positioning / Hustle

    • Judgement

  • Mental Preparation

    • Key Focus for 2-3 hours

    • Know the Rules

    • Know On-ice Procedures

  • Consistency

    • All Calls

    • Positioning

    • Personality


Welcome

GAME MANAGEMENT cont…1

  • Set the Standard at the Beginning of the Game

    • Deliver on Pre-Game Expectations

  • “BE THERE” to Make All Calls

    • New Enforcement Standard Requires Proper Sightlines

    • Verbalize – be concise

    • Less Signals are Better

  • Call Timing

    • See the Play

    • Digest the Play

    • Call the Play


Welcome

GAME MANAGEMENT cont…2

  • Penalty Calling

    • Patience is Key

    • Penalties will come to you at this level

    • You don’t need “to look for penalties”

    • Make certain your calls meet the penalty time delivered


Welcome

COMMUNICATION

  • Separates Top Officials From the Rest.

    • Calm Professionalism

  • Pre-Game

    • Coach Introductions

    • All Referee’s on the ice for warm-ups

    • Captains Meeting (1 minute before warm-up ends)

  • Captains Meeting

    • Establish Expectations

    • Business Professional Conduct

    • Keep the Communication Lines Open


Welcome

COMMUNICATION

  • Coach / Player Interaction

    • Bring the Participant’s Emotional Level Down

    • Limit Aggressive Vocal Behavior and Body Language

    • Conversational, Not Confrontational

    • Maintain an Even Keel with Emotions

    • Eliminate Foul Language

    • Let People Vent. Take Action when Venting Becomes Abuse.


Welcome

SITUATIONAL STUFF

  • Loose Pucks:

    • Along Boards: Vocal

    • Near Net: Silent

  • Avoid Confusion Over Play Stoppages

    • NEVER let some players think play is stopped & some not.Ex 1: Goals – point and blow whistle. No goal judges in ACHA hockey.Ex 2: Delayed penalty call touch-ups.Ex 3: Hand Passes & High Stick violations – be vocal if washout


Welcome

SITUATIONAL STUFF (cont.)

  • Admit mistakes, Apologize and move on.

    • Humanizes officials

    • Builds rapport & fosters communication

    • Don’t get your back up when you know you’re wrong.

  • If you start a conversation with a coach or player, you can not penalize them (especially GM or DQ) for what they say to you.

  • Protect Goaltenders

    • D2 teams may have only 1 good goaltender

    • D3 teams may have only 1 goaltender...period.


Welcome
