Getting Started with the KDHRA

New Officials

Becoming an on-ice official with the KDHRA is a competitve process. The number of positions available are less than the number of applications received. The KDHRA has, therefore, developed a selection process for new officials outlined below.

  • Registration - Opens in March
  • On-ice tryout (late April, early May)
  • Notification of selection status
  • Hockey Canada certification clinic
  • First games assigned by KDHRA
Returning Officials

Officials with previous on-ice experience as a Hockey Canada certified official will be assesed on a case by case basis. It is important to contact the Director of Development of the KDHRA

Certification Process

All officials must complete an annual certification clinic. Clinics are held both by the OMHA and the OWHA. The official's page of each association has information on clinic locations and times.
