All NORCAL games are officiated by members of IHONC - Ice Hockey Officials of Northern California. Use the link above to submit evaluations, ask questions about rules or officiating in general, or learn about the steps necessary to become an official.
Officials for regularly-scheduled NORCAL A, BB and B games are arranged by the league through IHONC.
To schedule officials for exhibition games arranged by member clubs or teams, a request must be made through each club's official scheduling contact and through the NORCAL scheduler. Every NORCAL member club has a person designated as the scheduling and ice contact. That is the only person from whom scheduling requests will be accepted.
Clubs or teams are not to contact IHONC directly. IHONC has been asked to return any such request back through the proper channels.
Use the link above for the latest information about how to become a NORCAL official.
All participants must register with USA Hockey as an Official and also must register online for a specific seminar. Registration for the 2018-19 season will open in August. All Officials will need to register in order to determine the number of Instructors and materials we will need. Also, every seminar will have a maximum number of spots available (first come, first serve).
