Online officiating clinics for the 2022 – 2023 season will be available for registration in early September 2022.

Hockey Manitoba will be offering a hybrid model this season. We will be combining online and in-person teaching to set up our officials for the season ahead. Below we will highlight the clinics being offered for the season as well as their requirements.

* All Level 1 and Level 2 officials will be required to attend an in-person clinic. Level 3 official clinics will be held online. Officials will need to complete the Hockey Canada officiating exam provided during the clinic you attend.

** Level 1 and Level 2 official clinics are in-person with a skating session following the classroom portion.

*** All officials need to be registered to officiate.

**** All officials need to be certified before December 1, 2022.

Please check the Hockey Canada Registry for dates and times in your region.


New Officials Clinic for the 2022 – 2023 season

The New Officials clinic being offered by Hockey Manitoba is for all new officials looking to wear the stripes for the first time. If you have never attended a clinic before, this is your first step in becoming a Hockey Manitoba official.

Once you have completed the HU (Hockey University) course, you must attend an in-person clinic and complete the exam. Once you have finished those three things you are certified for the season!

NEW officials entering Level II (must be 18 years of age or older)

Once attending this clinic and completing the exam, new officials will be required to attend a local on-ice session. Once you have finished those three things you are certified for the season!

Please Note: Officials who have attended and completed the online course are allowed to start officiating. If you do not complete the MANDATORY in-person skating session by December 1st, you will not be certified for the season.
