The Atlantic District has completed our annual seminars for the 2023-2024 season.  Registration for the 2024-2025 season will open around June 1.

We completed 25 Level 1 seminars, 11 Level 2 and 11 Level 3 seminars.  Through this process, our staff educated about 2,300 officials.

If you are in need of a seminar still, please check the USA Hockey website to see if there may be a seminar in another district that you can attend.  

Thank you to all of our instructional staff for your endless time and efforts throughout the year to help the next generation of officials!

Updated: Jan 31 - If you are a Level 1 who still needs to attend a seminar, keep an eye on your email for a notice from USA Hockey. They will be offering Virtual  (Zoom) Level 1  Seminars for those who still need to complete this requirement. Any updates will be posted as we receive them, but for now, keep an eye on your email!

  • 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.
