Does your son or daughter want to officiate hockey but is feeling a little "green" about the whole idea? Moorhead Youth Hockey offers a great way to initiate future referees into the game. The in-house program allows those newbies a chance to get a feel for the game in a slower-paced atmosphere, while still experiencing big game situations.
If you are interested in this program (which does PAY as well!) please contact Todd Lebahn at 701-212-2617 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
