Officials Development Application

  1. The Hockey Alberta Officials Development Program is open to female and male officials 18-30 years of age.

  2. Officials should have some level of experience both as a referee and as a linesman in high-level U16 male hockey.

  3. Applicants will be assessed by the Hockey Alberta Officials Development Coordinator and committee based on experience, merit and regional recommendation.

  4. Thirty-six (36) officials from across the province will be invited to participate in one of three Regional Development Camps, which run March 27-29 in Calgary, Red Deer, and Spruce Grove. At the Regional Development Camps, officials are subject to on-ice testing and supervision in game situations, as well as a classroom session where an SRD exam is written. Officials are evaluated on all aspects of the camp including physical testing, in-game evaluation, attitude, and participation.

  5. Nine (9) officials will be selected from the Regional Development Camps to officiate the Alberta Cup, which runs April 29-May 3 in Red Deer. At this tournament, officials will have access to coaching and evaluation from many of Alberta’s top officiating experts, making for an excellent opportunity for personal growth and development.

  6. Sixteen (16) officials will be selected from the Regional Development Camps to attend Hockey Alberta Officials Development Camp which runs in conjunction with the Team Alberta U16 Male Summer Development Camp in early July. This camp is an intensive officiating seminar which includes on- and off-ice testing, guest speakers, in-game coaching and evaluation, and many other activities designed to aid in the development of officials.

  7. One (1) official will be selected from the Hockey Alberta Development Camp as the recipient of the John Jacobs Most Promising Official award, which also comes with a special assignment the following season.

Deadline for applications is January 1, 2020.
