Oh really? Then where are the referees supposed to develop? I know you don't want to hear it, but I'm getting my two cents in.

House leagues in minor hockey do not offer good enough quality hockey to develop least not as good as rep hockey does. Officials work peewee games to earn the bantam games....the bantam games to earn the midget games ...the Jr.B games to earn the Jr.A games...etc.

Minor hockey is about developing players, officials and coaches.

Again...tell this to a guy like Pat Smith, who is a 3rd year WHL referee at 21 years of age.
