The South Shore Chapter of the National Ice Hockey Association is a charter member of NIHOA founded in 1957. The chapter provides ice hockey officials to High School and College ice hockey leagues in the greater Massachusetts area.
The registration process for NIHOA has changed. All members will now register directly with National and must also meet our local chapter requirements to be fully registered for the season.
ALL REGISTRATIONS MUST BE COMPLETED BY OCTOBER 31ST.
ANY RETURNING MEMBER REGISTERING AFTER OCTOBER 31ST WILL BE ASSESSED A $10.00 LATE FEE BOTH AT THE NATIONAL AND LOCAL LEVEL.
NATIONAL DUES ARE $50.00
LOCAL DUES $20.00
REGISTRATION FOR BOTH NATIONAL AND LOCAL DUES IS AVAILABLE NOW
LOCAL DUES MAY BE PAID THROUGH THE PAYPAL LINK ON OUR WEBSITE
NATIONAL DUES MAY BE PAID EITHER THROUGH THE NATIONAL WEBSITE HOMEPAGE UNDER THE HELP SECTION OR USE THE FOLLOWING LINK: www.NIHOA.com
Select the registration tab and then select NIHOA Registration-renewal 2019-2020..
Once you have completed this process, national will notify me. Once you have paid the local dues, I will notify National that your registration is complete and you will be eligible for game assignments.
Our traditional September meeting will not be held this year due to the virus. We are tentatively planning for our first meeting to be in November but this is dependent on future decisions by Schools and the MIAA concerning whether the season will take place this winter. There is a chance that it will be moved to the new MIAA floating season in March and April. We have the capacity to hold virtual meetings through zoom for the full membership if we are still unable to gather inside.
We have reduced our dues to $20.00 for this season. The paypal link is now ready. Officials who plan to officiate must still register with National by October 31st as well as South Shore and MIAA .
We understand that some officials may chose to sit out this season due to the virus. Please let me know if you plan to do so. We respect each individual decision, and should you chose to sit out the season, we most assuredly will welcome you back the following season.
We have 3 vacancies on the board at this time but due to the unusual circumstances of this season, we will hold these elections once we are all back together next year
Please check the website as we get closer to the winter season. We will post any information we receive. "
Thank you as always
