AAHA Rink Side Chats

The AAHA is conducting "Rink Side Chats" on the following dates:  Oct 24, Nov 15, Dec 12 and Jan 18 from 7-8 pm each evening.  Every official registered as a Level 1 or 2 official in the Atlantic District will receive an invite via Zoom to each session approximately 24 hours ahead of the session.  

These are completely voluntary sessions and there to help you become a better official and answer your questions.

What to Expect:

  • Questions answered – including how to finish your registration process!
  • Full of video clips to learn from.
  • Feedback on how to get games, more games, and why you might not be getting any games.
  • Guest speakers with State, National and International experience.

These Zoom meetings are voluntary on your part (but highly encouraged). You may tune in and just listen, or you may ask questions. This is a no-pressure way of helping you become the best official you can be. The better you become, the more opportunity to officiate you will have.

If you have any questions, please contact Bob Fyrer at

  • You must wait about 24 hours after registering with USA Hockey to register for your seminar.  Sometimes it is sooner, but the system needs time to process your registration and sync with the Courses system before it will find you.
  • Level 2 and Level 3/4 Virtual Seminars
    • All virtual seminars are listed as PA seminars, but they are good for everyone in the district. 
    • Please sign up early, seating is limited.
    • You can attend a virtual seminar from any district.
  • SafeSport – this is now a 12-month renewal period, not seasonal.  The Safe Sport courses do not show in the available, in progress, or completed courses tabs. They do not show in the dashboard after they are complete. Do not worry about not getting a physical certificate – the physical cert is not required.   Safe Sport reports to the records in the USA Hockey within 24 hours of completion.  Your profiles will not update the Safe Sport status at this time. The IT department is working on the programming to show a date of renewal instead of a season of renewal.
