MAHA appreciates the leadership that the Michigan Officials are showing by wearing masks while they are officiating games.
While wearing a mask, it will be near impossible for a referee or coach to lift a whistle to mouth and blowing action to a halt. Enter the electronic whistle thanks to Covid which will emanate a whistle sound via a simple click of a hand-held device, somewhat akin to clicking a computer mouse.
MAHA was lucky to be able to acquire a supply of these whistles, thanks to our RIC Russ Eidenberger, and a little help from our friends in Massachusetts where Officials also have to wear masks. The market for the electronic whistles has skyrocketed in recent months. These new-age whistles from Tide-Rider, a wholesaler in Oakdale, Calif., that has specialized in the sports whistle niche since 1950.

At the 2019 Summer Meeting, MAHA adopted a new policy for video review for supplementary discipline.
The Michigan Amateur Hockey Association (MAHA) is committed to ensuring the safety of participants at all ages and skill levels. With the increasing availability of video provided by rink-based programs and partners and parent or club-affiliated resources, for the 2019-20 season, we are entering a trial period of utilizing video review specifically as a means of determining whether an on-ice action caught on video, but not penalized by officials, is deserving of a formal review process for potential supplemental discipline. MAHA will NOT use video review for the purpose of changing any on-ice call.
Video submitted for potential review by MAHA will only be accepted/considered if presented by a member Association or Club (no individual or parent submissions will be accepted). This process shall be followed:
