Re: Officials needed

anon
what is the pay for a mite or squirt game?
It depends on league/assignor but general terms

Mites: X-Ice: $30 Full Ice $40-$45
Squirts: VHL $34, E9/BHL: $45, Fed/PHL $45-$50
Pee Wee: VHL $38, E9/BHL: $50, Fed/PHL $50-$60

Again these rates are representative, some org's/leagues pay a little more.

Re: Officials needed

What is the big deal with Mite & Squirt games and the need for 'certification' for basically a play-date for little kids learning to skate? For Town games throw the junior hockey player out there, pay him $70-$80 a game and have him drop the puck. Move the certified coaches to older kids games or higher end tournaments and let's move on. Seems USA Hockey has out thought themselves again.

Re: Officials needed

it starts at the top with zero programs turning away a check whether they need to add 30 more games to a schedule or not, and goes right through awful parents.

Re: Officials needed

Could officials start their own union?

So your logic is to take a 14 or 15 year old kid that got certified a few weeks ago and have them doing Pee Wee & above games from day 1? I don't see how anything could go wrong in this scenario.

My son 17 reffing a U14 game by himself got totally yelled at by the coach the whole game. Then after the game the parents yelled at him the whole way to his car F.U. Great parents. And you wonder why people don’t want to ref.
