Please do not fill out a membership request until you have received your USA Hockey Referee card and crest, and sucessfully completed the mandatory SafeSport screening, indicating that you are fully registered with USA Hockey. If you choose to fill out all of the information beforehand it will work, but you will be waiting until the USA Hockey registration and background screenings are complete.

  2. The organization reviews the submitted information to check with USA Hockey and other governing bodies to ensure the information provided and information is entered into the financial management system.

  3. SHOA will then admit you into membership and give you access to the members only section of our web site.

  4. SHOA will establish an account for the new member in Arbiter, the web-based system used by SHOA for scheduling officials. As soon as your account is created in Arbiter, you will receive an email from Arbiter with all the instructions you need to use your account, the first time and on subsequent logins. Follow the instructions to log into Arbiter, update the personal information and phone numbers, and click on the "Ready" button.

You should also read through the frequently asked questions and the new member powerpoint (sent upon registration) as most of the common questions are there.

Remember, the onus is on you as the official to complete the requirements each and every year.
