INFORMATION FOR ALL OFFICIALS - NEW & EXPERIENCED
When are the clinic schedules and online modules available?
The clinic schedules, online modules, and online payment will be available on the website following the August long weekend each hockey season.
Do I need to pre-register for an officials clinic?
Yes, officials will register online for the clinic they plan to attend. This is the third step in the registration process for 2015-16. If you need to attend a different clinic than the one you registered for, you must contact Ryan at the SHA Office to make this change.
How do I pay for my fees?
All clinic and membership fees must be paid online by clicking here. No money for membership or clinic fees will be accepted at the clinics. All supplies will be paid for and available at each officiating clinic. Supplies include rule books, SHA crests, manuals, Hockey Canada crests, and armbands.
How old do I have to be to become an official?
The recommended age is 12 years old. However, the decision is up to the parent and official. Some local associations do have minimum age requirements, but the SHA does not.
Do all officials new and returning have to do the on-line learning?
Yes, all officials across the province have to complete the on-line learning. Junior officials will complete the Hockey University online modules, while the Senior officials will complete the SHA online modules. The on-line learning has helped Saskatchewan to go to half-day clinics, which allows us to offer on-ice clinics immediately following the classroom clinic in some locations.
What do I do if I've forgotten my email/username?
Contact Trent at the SHA office 306-789-5101 or TrentC@sha.sk.ca and he will be able to help you.
What do I do if I've forgotten my password?
Click on "Forgot Your Password?", enter your email address, and your password will be emailed to that email address.
Where are the clinics located for the upcoming season?
To view a list of clinics across the province and see which communities are offering an on-ice clinic go to the clinic registration page on this website. Clinic Registration.
My community has never hosted an officiating clinic but is interested this year. How can I make this happen?
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 of their desire to host a clinic no later than February 1. Clinics are booked in February & March for the following season.
I am interested in becoming a Clinic Instructor. How do I get involved?
Each season, all Clinic Instructors attend our Instructor's Seminar, which is held the weekend after the September long weekend. If you are interested in becoming a clinic instructor, contact your Zone Coordinator to express your interest.
Can I officiate in Saskatchewan if I'm a registered official in Alberta or Manitoba?
Although you are registered with Hockey Alberta or Hockey Manitoba, you will need to affiliate with the SHA. To do this, please call the SHA Manager, Officiating at 306-789-5101. There is a $25 affiliation fee and everything can be done over the phone. Once the affiliation has been processed, the official is eligible to officiate all levels of hockey in Saskatchewan.
