2. This season IAHA is mandating that all referees follow USA Hockey's officiating standards
which break down like this:
Level 1: Mites, Squirts, PeeWees
Level 2: Level 1 games Bantams (Midget, High School, Adult ONLY IF you moved up from level 1)
Level 3: Eligible for everything
The penalties for a local association not following these assignment rules are drastic. The game won't count for either team, both teams are placed in 'bad standing' with IAHA which can affect their eligibility to play in the state tournaments, and your referee association will also be in bad standing. The solution is easy, just move up a level and everything will be great! Level 1 -> Level 2 = Eligible for everything. Level 2 -> Level 3 = eligible for everything. If you're trying to stay a Level 1 forever to save money (been there, done that) this rule is encouraging you to move up.
