I'm 19 and this is my 4th season of officiating, and I line the highest level I can under the EIHA which is the EPIHL, the EIHL is under a different governing body, Ice Hockey UK, since it includes Scottish teams as well.
All officials have to do a one day course every summer to be made aware of any rule changes, and we have to do a rules and skating test. You have to attend in order to officiate the upcoming season
Sorry to bother you with so many questions, but if you don't ask.
Obviously at the rec league or house league level officials are volunteers but at the higher competitive levels what do officials get paid?
New Brunswick Hockey Officials Association (NBHOA) asks $200/per game $50 for linesman and $100 for a referree in Major Midget and Minor Midget AAA and above...Jr A, B, C, Senior A, etc. Major Jr and University probably higher because of higher certificate required.
The only link I can find stating costs is from the NBIAA (High School) $140/game probably split $35 for linesman and $70 for refs, Plus mileage $0.40/Km if officials have to travel
What do on ice officials get in England?
You should never have mentioned your avocation
