U.S. Pond Hockey Championships

2023 USPHC Referee Registration



There is no better way to engulf yourself in the USPHC experience than being a part of our Pond Crew. You'll be instrumental in helping us provide the absolute BEST experience for thousands of players, sponsors and fans experiencing Hockey. The Way Nature Intended.

We could not have a successful tournament without our dedicated referees!



Referees stand off-rink and mainly serve as scorekeepers and make goal-tending calls; hockey knowledge is required. We will provide a mandatory PAID training session prior to the event (NEW for 2023 - training will be paid!)

USPHC is TWO full weekends:

  • Opening Weekend:
    Friday, January 20 - Sunday, January 22, 2023
    Divisions : Bender, Rink Rat, Women's Rink Rat, 40+ Rink Rat
  • Golden Weekend :
    Friday, January 27 - Sunday, January 29, 2023
    Divisions : Open, Women's Open, 40+ Open, 50+, Cedar, Bender, Adaptive, Sled

With TWO event weekends, that means MORE games and a GREATER need for your talent! 


  • Tier 1:  Work 1-5 shifts, earn $15 per game
  • Tier 2:  Work 6 or more shifts over the course of two weekends, earn $20 per game (retroactive for all games worked)

Each game is approximately 30 minutes long composed of two 15-minute halves with a 2-minute halftime. A new game starts every 60 minutes. You will be paid following your final shift of the event or if you wish, you can choose to donate your earnings to our worthy charitable partners and they will receive the benefits of your labor.

In addition to per game pay, referees will receive a variety of AWESOME EXTRA PERKS!

  • Official 2023 USPHC Pond Crew Beanie
  • Official 2023 USPHC Pond Crew bag and goodies from our sponsors
  • Official USPHC Pond Crew Merchandise (must work a minimum of 2 shifts to receive this)
  • Food and beverages during your shifts
  • Loads and loads of pond hockey fun!
