We would like to invite you to the Jamie Huntley-Park Pacific District Women’s Officiating Camp.  The camp is open to female ice hockey officials and will be held in the Portland, OR area late afternoon September 23rd to early afternoon September 26th, 2021.  Our educational camp will feature classroom sessions, power skating sessions, off-ice workouts and the opportunity to gain experience working in both the 3- and 4- Official system.  Participation in this camp will also fulfill the Level 2, 3, or 4 Seminar requirements of your USA Hockey Registration for the 2021–22 season.

Classroom sessions will feature discussions on officiating mechanics, positioning and rule knowledge with supporting sessions focusing on nutrition, fitness workouts and workout recovery.  On-ice sessions will focus on skating fundamentals and will introduce officials to a variety of skating drills and tests. The camp curriculum is not designed to intimidate anyone, but rather, expose you to and educate you on the fundamentals of ice hockey officiating so that you may develop into successful game manager.

This camp will feature an outstanding Staff consisting of experienced officials including Jackie Spresser, Alicia Hanrahan (2014 Sochi Olympics), Kendall Hanley and Annette Lin.  Also in attendance will be Pacific District Referee-in-Chief Dan Ellison and the Oregon State Referee-in-Chief Erik Nyberg.
