The board of IHNSW has restructured its officiating structure to better meet objectives in this area. This restructure sees the traditional role of the RIC split between 2 new positions.
Essentially, the function of
allocating officials to games is separated from the RIC function of developing
and growing this essential part of our sport. It is the Officiating Elite
Performance Manager who holds the RIC title.
The Board believes that this
new structure will give better outcomes with respect to developing our
officials nationally and improving their performance.
All applications are to be emailed to the Executive Officer, Ice Hockey NSW firstname.lastname@example.org– deadline extended to end of January 2020.
IHNSW recently held a Come and Try Goalie session. We had 9 goalies attend, learning the basics of goaltending including stance, skating, and save techniques. The session was a great success with several participants keen to pursue further goalie training.
Thank you to the Sydney Bears Ice Hockey Club for loaning multiple sets of goalie equipment for this session.
Thank you also to the goalie coaches who helped out: Jenn Wearne and Steven Donovan (Ice Wolves), Paula Keen and Tina Girdler (Sydney Sirens).
Finally, thank you to all the shooters who helped out: Jayden Ryan, Tim Morris, Kath McOnie and Amelia Matheson, all from the Sydney Sirens.
