Veteran and adult referees; Please ensure that you have begun the process to sign up for a clinic well in advance, as there is a Criminal Record Check (CRC). 

Follow BCH Step 2 under Programs >> Officiating >> Getting Started. The CRC must be completed BEFORE you can sign up for the clinic.

In order to officiate, all participants must complete the BC Hockey Officiating clinic every year. Participating in a on-ice clinic does not certify you to officiate

If you take a clinic outside of our organization, please advise the referee allocator, to ensure they put your name on the referee list.

Please ensure that you have arranged a RAMP account through the RAMP link. Please provide an up to date email address, cell phone number and address. 

Games are assigned through RAMP. We do our best to provide everyone equal opportunity.

New Officials

In-person certification clinic beginning October 17, 2023. There will be a 4hr classroom session and 50 min on ice session. Completing these will allow you to officiate from the point of completion up until December 31, 2024. All officials must recertify each season to skate games past that date.

New officials who are 10, turning 11 before December 31, 2023, or are already 11, will only be permitted to skate cross-ice games during their first season.
