Becoming a USA Hockey Official

Stowe Youth Hockey encourages its players to consider becoming credentialed officials. It’s a fantastic way to really learn the rules, see the game from a different perspective, and learn to respect the official’s job. And it’s a great job that gives you extra ice time!
