HorizonWebRef Updates

We are well into our first season with Horizon Web Ref and overall we, as a Board, feel that it is going pretty well.  We would like to solicit your feedback on how you think things can be improved.  Please email your ideas and thoughts to horizon@alaskahockeyofficials.com.  No promises, but we would love to hear from you.

Horizon Web Ref is here and ready for you.  Games are actively being scheduled in Horizon.  We need you!  Here is a link to the web portal to get logged in.  Horizon Web Ref software.  To create an account, enter our organization number, '206340 ', select your type of account, 'Official' or 'Athletic Director', then click sign up.

  • After your account gets approved, you MUST update your profile with the required contact information. That is a Horizon requirement not AHO requirement.
  • After that you MUST go to the Availability Calendar menu on the right and set your availability. You are not available by default. Which means that you have to make your schedule open (Green), in order for a scheduler to be able to schedule you for games.
  • Here is a link for help with the calendar. Understanding the Availability Calendar | Horizon Help Center (horizonwebref.com)
