The following is a new order for the 2010-2011 season.
In order to comply with Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 149, Sections 54 - 105, all officials must reach the age of 14 prior to being allowed to officiate USA Hockey games within the Massachusetts District. In addition, all officials age 14 to 17 must submit the proper documentation to the league(s) they work for prior to being assigned any games for the 2010 - 2011 season. M.G.L. Chapter 149 also restricts officials age 14 to 17 on the number of hours they can work in a day and the times of day they are allowed to officiate. Questions about this change in policy can be directed to Owen Thompson at email@example.com .
