Hockey Alberta utilizes an online Supervision Form to help with the development and growth of on-ice officials. The form can be viewed by clicking the on the button below. The form is filled out by the supervisor, in consultation with the official being assessed. The supervisor must enter his/her email address and the address of the official in the box titled "Forward to Email(s)". Once the supervisor clicks to Submit, the form will automatically be sent to the official, supervisor, Supervision Coordinator and the North Region. 

NORTH REGION SUPERVISION FORM >

For questions about Supervisions in the North Region, contact the Supervisions Coordinator. 

Spring/Summer hockey is NOT sanctioned by Hockey Alberta or Hockey Canada. NOT sanctioned means:

  1. You have no insurance in the event you get hurt so you are on your own for any medical bills or lost income.
  2. You have no insurance in the event a player gets hurt, so if the injured player sues you will be personally responsible for any judgement against you - possibly millions of dollars depending upon the injury.
  3. The same suspension guidelines are not in place so in the event of Match on Official (for example) you have no one advocating for you on your behalf.
  4. The hockey leagues do not have to use certified officials so your partners on the ice may not be as fully qualified as you are.
  5. You must remove or cover your Hockey Alberta crest. If you do not you could be subject to discipline ranging from a fine to suspension.
