This is the place for those interested to learn more about how to become a new official or returning officials wanting to continue.
Under new officiating leadership, Chilliwack Minor Hockey strives to heavily focus on the development of younger, brand new officials, along with the more experienced referees seeking additional knowledge and skills to become confident, courageous and successful officials.
We offer a greatly experienced development team of supervisors/shadows that will be working very closely with officials, working on achieving their personal goals.
Are you interested in becoming a referee?
CMHA and Hockey Canada are in need of new officials that are fully committed and wishing for a new, fun role in the game of hockey.
The game is continually growing, and each year we need to bring in new officials all across Canada to keep pace with the everlasting demand and ensure hockey stays safe and fair for everyone.
Refereeing can be an extremely rewarding experience, and we encourage anyone who is interested to sign up for an HCOP clinic.
If your child is 12-years old or older (turning 12 next hockey season), they are eligible to become a referee!
New officials must register for Hockey University - Officiating Online Modules. You’re required to fully complete this course, as it is a prerequisite to joining an HCOP clinic and becoming a referee.
If you're registered as a player for CMHA, we can look into referee funding assistance.
