NAHL accepting applications for Officiating Exposure Camps

December 21, 2023

The North American Hockey Legaue (NAHL) is pleased to announce that applications for the 2024 NAHL Officiating Exposure Camps are now open. 2024 Exposure Camps will take place in Missouri, Ohio, California and Massachusetts.

NAHL Officiating Exposure Camps are designed to provide education, exposure, and experience to officiating prospects who are seeking a development opportunity and aspire to advance into higher levels of amateur hockey, junior hockey and beyond. The camps will feature classroom sessions, off-ice testing, on-ice testing, and the opportunity to gain experience working in both the Three and Four-Official Systems.

Education: Classroom sessions will provide an overview of the Three- and Four-Official System positioning and mechanics and feature a presentation of the major differences between the USA Hockey Youth and USA Hockey Junior Rulebook. Officials will be provided an overview of the various opportunities in officiating that are available within the NAHL family of leagues and discuss the NAHL Officiating Ladder of Development.

Exposure: Officials will receive feedback from experienced Officiating Coaches and will leave with an understanding of the fundamental and advanced techniques they will need to master so that they can continue to develop into successful game managers at the current levels they work in addition to the levels they aspire to advance to. Officials will be exposed to a variety of on-ice and off-ice tests that will provide them with individual baseline performance measurements they can use to pinpoint and navigate areas of improvement for themselves in the future.

Experience: Held in conjunction with a NAHL Combine, games will feature highly skilled prospects from North America and Europe who are competing to advance their playing career to the junior hockey level. Games will be fast paced, skilled, and competitive! Officials will work in both the Three- and Four-Official Systems and will have the opportunity to officiate in front of representatives from USA Hockey's Advanced Officiating Development Program (AODP) and more.
