Summer Officiating Schools

2022 Summer Officiating Schools

The offseason is when the hard work is put in to get yourself ready for the next season. 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.
