Development Camp 2019



Dear USA Hockey Official:

NYSAHA will be hosting an officiating development camp at SUNY Oswego in Oswego, New York from July 7 through July 10, 2019. The camp is open to all completely registered officials in the New York District and is instructional in nature, but non-competitive.

The camp staff includes some of the top instructors in our district, with experience at the professional and collegiate levels. Camp highlights include classroom sessions and two ice sessions during the day. Power skating and mechanics of the two and three official systems are emphasized.  SUNY Oswego has provided the use of the Student Center which houses ice, classrooms, locker rooms, training and weight rooms. The residence hall and dining hall are each next door. Camp staff, security, medical personnel and resident assistants will be available in the residence hall.

Staff members and a chaperone supervise the officials throughout the camp. Security personnel are on site as are medical trainers. Should a medical need arise, the Oswego Hospital is less than one mile away.

You can attend the camp at a nominal cost ($250) which includes room and board (4 days and 3 nights). Those requiring special meals can be accommodated.
