I'm interested in getting started in refereeing next year. Question for those of you who referee quite regularly: how well should you need to skate in order to referee? I'm not iterested in getting up to the elite coaching levels, I'm just interested in refereeing games with younger kids in them, maybe games that only require a level 1 or 2 certification just to start. I've only been skating for about 1 1/2 years, and I've been warned you need to have pretty good skating skills to get your level 1 certification. Not quite sure what "pretty good" means, can anybody here clarify how well I should skate before going through the level 1 certification seminar? And what do they do in the seminars? Do they test you for skating ability, like speed and agility? Thanks for any help/advice you guys can give me...
