SIAP. You heard it right, the CCHA is now hiring officials. Not sure how much the timing makes sense.
Your local USA Hockey officials association can assist you further in learning the basic rules, on-ice mechanics, judgment and communication. The training is clear, concise and designed to give you the skills and confidence you need. Our CCHA officials mentoring program will team you up with an experienced official who can answer all of your questions and guide you through your first season. As you progress in skill, advancement can come quickly. Qualified college hoc key officials can advance to officiating challenging, high-caliber games. The CCHA officiating program will prepare you to accept the challenges of officiating more demanding games.
Does this mean the majority of them are leaving for the B1G or is this just a case of the CCHA web design team being just as incompetent as the referees?
On a side note - not sure how hiring former players from CCHA schools supports independence. I can think of no population that would have more bias during the games, especially against Michigan.
