Common Clinic Questions and Answers HERE
All officials must have the online payment & online modules completed prior to attending a clinic. Officials need to take their proofs of completion of these (print out or picture on your phone) with them to the clinic.
Step 1 - Online Payment
Pay clinic and membership fees online. Payment for clinic & membership fees will not be accepted at the clinics. The only money accepted at the classroom clinics will be for supplies (rule books, crests, manuals, etc.). Cash, cheques, and credit cards are accepted. There will be a $20 fee charged for all NSF cheques.

Lastly, attend the clinic you registered for. If you need to attend a different clinic than the one you registered for, please contact the SHA office to make these adjustments.
With the initiative of the Hockey University part of the clinic, we were able to move clinics to 4 hours in length. This has provided the opportunity for towns to host an on-ice clinic immediately following the classroom clinic. To see what topics are covered in the on-ice sessions, check the "On Ice Clinics" section of the website. Also, to see which communities are offering on-ice clinics, check the clinic schedules above.
Clinics will be booked by the Referee's Division annually. Communities which did not host a clinic in the current season and would like to request to host a clinic in the upcoming season must notify the Manager, Officiating by email TrentC@sha.sk.caof their desire to host a clinic no later than February 1.
Step 4 - Contact Association
Phone local minor hockey association or local referee association to let them know you are a registered official.
If you have any questions on how to get started email Trent Cey, Manager of Officiating Development firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the SHA Office at 306-789-5101.
