New Referees

Starting at age 12, girls are encouraged to consider becoming on ice referees.

The Hockey Canada Officiating Program (HCOP) is completed in two (2) parts.  Part A is an online program and Part B is an in person clinic.

Click here to register for Hockey University Officiating 1/2.  This is the online course that must be completed prior to registering for the clinic.


Returning Referees

Recertification is required.

The links for some certification clinics are now posted on the BC Hockey Clinics Website and you should check back regularly.  All returning officials must attend one of these clinics. If you are over 16, you can register for level 2 certification. You must be certified each year through BC Hockey to officiate with Meadow Ridge Barracudas.

Certification is the responsibility of BC Hockey and if you have any questions/concerns about the courses themselves, please contact BC Hockey .
