Information for Referees

Richmond Minor Hockey Association Referees


For returning referees click here to sign up for referee clinics on the eHockey website. You must complete an update course every year. The courses are usually listed as of mid-August. You will need your Hockey ID number to sign up.  If you don't know your Hockey ID number, please contact our registrar or BC Hockey.

For new referees, we hope to offer a local clinic in October. Please stand by for more information.

All referees who are aged 18 years or older must complete a criminal record check.

If you have questions about referee clinics or assignments, please email the assignor, Don Mathewson
