 The Art of Officiating

To become a competent, respected official at any level requires patience, discipline, dedication, courage and hard work. It’s not usually something that comes naturally, nor can the skills be taught or mastered overnight; yet the demands for perfection are immediate. Hockey is a fast paced, emotionally charged, exciting sport and officials are an integral part along with players, coaches and spectators. Hockey officiating is an apprenticeship process and one of the main tools is learning through actual game experience.
