USA Hockey question

I have been playing hockey for about 6 years and have always been a member of USA hockey. i quit for about 2 years and i am now 18. Do i have to re-register with USA hockey? because the beer league i joined requires USA hockey. Like most i would expect.

I believe you have to re-register with USA Hockey ever year regardless, so the answer is yes.

Register with USA Hockey to get your number, then your captain can submit your number to your beer league. Your USA Hockey number will expire after one year.

In our league, the captain needs to enter the USA Hockey numbers of the players on our team into the league's database so their names will appear on the rosters. You could always check with your captain and see if he needs a hard copy of your number or if you can just email/text him the number. Best of luck with your new team!

Why would an adult league require USA Hockey membership? The beer league I play in doesn't.

Mine does. I'm sure the rinks like players to be insured, and USA Hockey memberships do provide some insurance for injuries sustained during USA Hockey events (though the deductible is enormous).

Insurance reasons.

I started playing in the SIAHL in the spring; it's been a lot of fun.

The players have to have USA Hockey membership so they can have USA certified referees. Thats why just about every youth hockey organization is registered.

USA registered referees are not supposed to officiate non-USA Hockey santioned games (including beer leagues)because all the players AND the officials would not be covered under USA Hockey's insurance.

If you think USA registered officials are bad, try getting some guys that REALLY dont know what they are doing.
