NorHOA - Northern California Hockey Officials Association

All NORCAL games are officiated by members of NorHOA - Northern California Hockey Officials Association. Please email NorHOA staff to submit evaluations, ask questions about rules or officiating in general, or learn about the steps necessary to become an official.

Game Scheduling Procedures

Officials for regularly-scheduled NORCAL A, BB and B games are arranged by the league through NorHOA.

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 NorHOA directly. NorHOA has been asked to return any such request back through the proper channels.
