Officials play a vital role in the game. The basic role of the official can be broken down into two simple words –safe and fair. By viewing and officiating the game with these two words in mind, an official should be able to call a game that is acceptable to all of the participants.
The Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) carries out coaching clinics and programs though it’s Member Partners. For complete and accurate information on which certification is required to be a team official – i.e. coach, manager, trainer – please visit the appropriate organization’s website and/or contact the appropriate person within that organization.
If you are unsure of who to contact, please email Jeff Stewart.
