2014-15 Scrimmage Referee Guidelines

It is the responsibility of the home team to schedule the referees and EMT for scrimmages.  The home team provides the ice and, as a courtesy, the visiting team pays for the referees and EMT.  If holding a scrimmage on home ice, the visiting team coach and/or business manager should be informed of the cash payment due to the EMT and each referee at the end of the scrimmage game.  The home team coach and/or business manager can collect the money and pay the officials.  Two referees are required for checking level games, and recommended for mite and squirt level games. The following pay scale is standard for a scrimmage.  An EMT is required for PAHL scrimmages and any other scrimmage in which a SAHA team is participating in at the Iceoplex or other designated home ice facility. 

EMT payments:
                   PeeWee AA, Bantam AA & all Midget    ---      $35.00
                        All levels BELOW PeeWee AA          ---      $30.00
Referee payments:
Squirt ----------------------------    $25 per ref
                     PeeWee A/B---------------------    $30 per ref                     
PeeWee AA---------------------    $35 per ref
Bantam A/B --------------------     $40 per ref
Bantam AA---------------------     $45 per ref
Midget --------------------------     $60 per ref
If you are hiring a hockey player (youth referee) they should be at least one age division older than the game they will be officiating (i.e., only bantams or midgets should officiate a peewee level game).  Although PAHL rules prohibit family members to officiate a game, they may be used for scrimmages at the discretion of the coaches and business managers.
USA Hockey policy at games and scrimmages requires that all referees MUST be registered USA Hockey officials.  Failure to use registered USA Hockey officials could jeopardize the required liability insurance coverage resulting in repercussions toward the teams involved and the Associations to which they belong. 
The following referees listed are adult officials and SAHA players (youth) who possess a current USA Hockey official registration. This is by no means a complete list of referees that are available and you are free to hire any of your choosing as long as they are current USA Hockey registered officials.  A registered official wears a USA Hockey Officials crest on their jersey indicating the year for which they are registered.  Referee registrations expire on November 30th of each year.  This list will be updated periodically to include continued and new registrations.
