On behalf of the AAHA Officiating Community it is my honor to announce that Steve Foran (Harrington Park, NJ) has been appointed National Tournament Observer for the 2017-2018 season by Jim Doyle, AAHA Referee-In-Chief.
Steve Foran is a long time veteran, with over 40 years of officiating experience. He is from North Jersey, and was an original member of the Board Of Directors of Northeast Ice Hockey Officials Association. He has officiated at every level of competitive hockey including USA Hockey National Championships, college hockey at in the ECAC and at the pro levels in the NAHL & AHL.
Steve is deeply rooted in the USA Hockey fundamentals and protocols and his ability to communicate with officials is excellent. Steve assisted us 2 years ago at the National Tournament in Wayne NJ as a supervisor - evaluator during that National Championship.
This season he will supervise tournaments through-out the district during the regular season to assist in identifying officials to work the National Championships in the spring of 2018. This includes evaluating games, communicating with our league R-I-C's and assignors and developing a database so we can follow-up and observes officials during the regular season.
We look forward to working with Steve Foran once again this season.
