New Official (Stratford Referees Association)

All officials must register for and complete a new official's clinic in accordance with standards established by Hockey Canada in order to referee with the Stratford Referees Association. As Rotary Hockey has become affiliated with Minor Hockey Alliance of Ontario, there are no longer any leagues that do not require Hockey Canada certification.

The Stratford Referees Association has provided a questionnaire that may be completed and submitted before a prospective official registers for a new officials clinic in order to determine if the Stratford Referees Association is willing to consider you as a referee for the upcoming season. Click here for the questionnaire.

The Stratford Referees Association does not accept all new applicants. New applicants will be required to complete an application form that will be reviewed the the President before the applicant is accepted or refused. Click here for the application.

New officials' clinics are scheduled every Fall by each of the hockey organizations that the Stratford Referees Association work with - Minor Hockey Alliance of Ontario, Ontario Minor Hockey Association and Ontario Women's Hockey Association.
