Officiating - Getting Started

The following steps outline the process for officials to register for the 2020-21 season

Note: All returning officials that do not require a Criminal Record Check (CRC) (17 years or younger as of December 31 of the current calendar year) or officials with a currently valid CRC can proceed directly to step 3.

STEP 1: All NEW officials MUST complete the Hockey University (HU) - Officiating 1/2 online module.  Once Hockey University is complete (including the post-module survey), any official that will be 18 years or older as of December 31 of the current calendar year MUST complete ‘Step 2’ by submitting for a Criminal Record Check. All new officials 17 year or under as of December 31 that have completed ‘Step 1’ may proceed to ‘Step 3.’

STEP 2: Any official without a valid CRC that is 18 years of age or older as of December 31 of the current calendar year must complete a CRC.  A valid CRC is required prior to registering for the current season.  The link below in the ‘Step 3’ bar provides the process for submitting for a new CRC, at no charge. Please see the video below regarding access to your e-hockey account to check the status of your most recent CRC. CRCs are valid for three (3) seasons.

STEP 3: NEW for the 2020-21 season, ALL OFFICIALS are required to complete (including the post-module survey) the Hockey University (HU) online ‘Planning a Safe Return to Hockey’ prior to registering for your 2020-21 clinic.

STEP 4: With all of the applicable aspects of steps 1-3 fulfilled, officials may proceed to registering for their 2020-21 clinic. It is advised to consult with your local RIC regarding whether or not an in-person clinic is being offered by your association. If your association is not offering an in-person clinic this season, BC Hockey will be offering several online certification opportunities. Please note, officials WILL NOT be permitted to officiate this season until they have completed their in-person or online clinic via ‘Step 4.’

BC Hockey is a non-profit organization and member of Hockey Canada in charge of governing amateur hockey at all levels in British Columbia and the Yukon Territory.

Approximately 150 minor hockey associations, 55,000 players, 4,500 referees, 20,000 official volunteers and countless others make our great game possible here in Pacific Canada.
