Officials perform a vital role in the game at all levels and are the third team on the ice, without whom the game would not happen. The Hockey Canada Officiating Program is for anyone interested in officiating the game of hockey, from beginners to seasoned veterans. There are six levels in the Officiating program, from those looking to get started to the top tier of officials.
The lower levels are designed to get you started in officiating, while the higher levels are open to officials who have advanced through the lower levels and show potential to work the top levels of hockey in Canada, and Internationally.
For new Officials or those interested in getting started, you will need to attend an Hockey Manitoba Entry Level qualification clinic, but before you do, contact your association or Ref in Chief to find out information such as, when games will take place and how this fits your schedule. A participant must be a minimum of 12 years of age to enter the program.
