UPDATE - Unfortunately BC Hockey has decided to cancel our annual Summer Officiating Schools in the interest of the health and safety of our officials. We appreciate the level of interest and attendance these camps receive every summer and we look forward to seeing them in operation again in the future. Please enjoy your summer, stay safe and to remain engaged with the BC Hockey officiating program please feel free to follow @BCHockey_Refs on Twitter and Instagram.


If you are looking for an opportunity to expand your knowledge of officiating then the BC Hockey Summer Officiating School will meet all your expectations. The school will be devoted entirely to Hockey Canada Officiating Program (HCOP) material. The current season's HCOP certification exam will be administered on the final day of camp to provide certification. Ice sessions have been designed to supplement the classroom instructional content. Students may be grouped by age, ability or level of interest during the school to maximize success


Camp Attendance Fee = $600

Upcoming season Certification Fees (included in price above)
*Participant Assessment Fee (This fee will be available within your confirmation email.)


Any student ages 12 to 18 years old as of December 31 of the current calendar year wishing to register as a BC Hockey Official in the upcoming season is welcome to attend.

All NEW officials will be required to complete the online Hockey University “Officiating 1/2” course prior to certification registration. RETURNING officials do not have to take the online course. 

Level 1 officials are 12-15 years old. Level 2 officials are 16+ years old.  Level 3 officials must be a minimum of 18 years old and have written recommendation letter from their District Officiating Coordinator. Any official that will be 18 years of age or older as of December 31 of the current calendar year will be required to complete a Criminal Record Check (CRC) prior to registration for their upcoming season's certification.

For further information regarding CRCs and Hockey University please visit our officiating “Getting Started” page.


The Summer Officiating Schools are operated under the direction of experienced BC Hockey Officiating Program personnel. Instructors will include BC Hockey instructional staff, elite level officials and possible special guests.

Appilcations will be accepted early 2020.


Supervised dormitory accommodations are located near the arena. All students are expected to stay in residence for the duration of the camp.


Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided daily.
