IMPORTANT NOTE: As of today, this camp is scheduled to take place. We are constantly monitoring the situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. The health and safety of camp participants is paramount to us making any decision regarding the camp.

After a successful inaugural camp in 2019, the USA Hockey Referee-in-Chiefs in Atlantic, New England, New York and Massachusetts Districts are excited to announce the 2020 Eastern Women’s Development camp will take place in Marlborough, Massachusetts on ​July 16-19, 2020. ​This camp is part of the commitment to educational excellence for women’s ice hockey officials.

The camp provides both classroom instruction from current and former NCAA Officials and live game experience in the three and four official systems followed by feedback using video review with a focus on development.

Following the 2019 camp, 20 officials that attended were assigned by junior and college hockey leagues at both the Division 1 and 3 levels. There will be NCAA Division 1 supervisors from the College Hockey Association, ECAC Hockey, and the New England Women's Hockey Alliance in addition to USA Hockey supervisors from the east coast districts.

The camp is open to female officials at least 18 years old from the Atlantic, New England, New York and Massachusetts USA Hockey districts. There is no cost to attend the camp, housing and meals will be provided. Selected officials are responsible for transportation to the camp. Attendance satisfies the USA Hockey seminar requirement for the 2020-2021 season.

Selection for the camp will be based on the completed application, experience in women’s hockey, and the official’s goals in women’s hockey. The selected officials will be notified by ​June 1, 2020​.

The application can be found at: ​ Applications are due by ​May 15, 2020.
