The OPOE (Officiating Program of Excellence) is a camp held to identify and instruct BC Hockey officials that show potential placement or promotion within the Above Minor Program. This camp is a great High Performance opportunity within the Officiating Program.
BC Hockey High Performance officials are the elite officials within our organization. They have the opportunity to be selected for regional and national events such as the BC Winter Games, Canada Winter Games and the World Under 17 Hockey Challenge.
A few seasons ago the Referee Committee restructured the High Performance Program. The High Performance Camp is now the first stage. Upon completion of this camp the top officials will have the opportunity to move forward in the program. Those officials are then entered into the High Performance pool, which consists of High Performance officials from previous seasons as well as the current season. Officials from this pool will be eligible for assignments such as BC Winter Games, BC Cup Under 17, Hockey Canada Program of Excellence, Canada Winter Games and the World Under 17 Hockey Challenge. Officials are recommended for the High Performance Camp by BC Hockey Referee Committee Members.
