HCOP Force Referee Assist Program

Hockey Canada is partnering with FORCE to launch the Referee Assist Program, which will assist Minor Hockey Associations in recruiting officials. The 2024-25 season will be a pilot with the hopes of expanding the program further in future years.

Selected MHAs will receive jerseys to be distributed to new officials who are certifying for the first time. The MHA may choose to give the jersey to that official for the season or share the jerseys amongst new officials (e.g. “try officiating” model). At the end of the season, the official will return the jersey to the MHA. If the official wishes to continue for a second year, they will have the opportunity to purchase a jersey.

In order to best determine which MHAs may benefit from this program, please fill out the form below NO LATER than June 23rd 2024 if you are interested in participating.

A maximum of 2 selected MHAs will be notified by 17 July and provided with promotional material to assist in their recruitment of officials for the 2024-25 season.
