Official Clinics - 2023

Calling all 12+ players, coaches, parents, and community members!!


Canmore Minor Hockey is hosting Levels 1 and 2 Officials clinics on October 1st at the Canmore Recreation Centre, and Banff Minor Hockey is hosting a Level 1 clinic on November 12th. If you are interested in being an official this season, please read, carefully, through ALL of the information below. 


  • Referees must complete a clinic each season, or their status as a certified official expires in December of the current year. 
  • All officials 19 years and older need to complete a Criminal Record Check (CRC) to register for the clinic. Only CRC’s done through will be accepted. Each CRC is good for three years, unless otherwise notified.
  • If you’re not registered to play minor hockey or coach, make sure you add the “Hockey Canada Insurance” option, as it is mandatory to have and will save you a time later.
  • Rates for referees can be reviewed on the Hockey Alberta website and all rates are split between 2 officials. Being a referee is a very flexible way to generate a little bonus cash, plus it's fun and gets you out on the ice!


Prior to registering for the clinic: Read through Hockey Alberta's "Become an Official". And please ensure you use the appropriate link below for your age when registering for the clinic. If you are taking the course for the first time, you will need to complete the online portion prior to the clinic. Here is the link to complete HU-Online Officiating 1/2

We would love to see some of our older players discover the world of officiating. And we would also appreciate that you spread the word to members in our community as we have a shortage of adult referees here in the Bow Valley.
