Clinic Schedule & Information

The Hockey Canada Officiating Program (HCOP) requires that every official complete a certification program each season in order to officiate. As such, Hockey Eastern Ontario offers a variety of clinic dates and formats for officials to certify at the beginning of each season.
Hockey Eastern Ontario breaks the certification process down into three main categories:

  • New Officials: New officials are required to complete an online course through Hockey University, as well as attend a four (4) hour in-person clinic. A new official will not be able to sign up for their in-person clinic until they have fully completed the Hockey University program. A new official must register for an in-person clinic specifically marked for new officials. (*Official - New Youth Referee Clinics)
  • Returning Officials: Level I and II officials. Level I and II officials are required to complete a pre-clinic casebook study as well as attend a four (4) hour in person clinic. The completed casebook study must be completed and brought to the in-person clinic.
  • Returning Officials: Level III, IV, V and VI officials. Level III, IV, V and VI officials are required to complete a pre-clinic casebook study as well as attend a four (4) hour in person clinic. The completed casebook study must be completed and brought to the in-person clinic.

Pre-Registration: Officials are required to pre-register and pay for their clinic before attending the clinic. Officials are not permitted to show up the day of the clinic with payment. Officials who are not pre-registered will not be granted access to the clinic and will be asked to pre-registered, pay and attend another clinic.

New officials: Officials who are brand new (never officiated before) or returning after an absence from officiating in the HEO must first have approval from their local Referee-in-Chief to take a clinic before signing up. Many districts run a try-out for new officials so you are encouraged to contact your local Referee-in-Chief as quickly as possible to discuss your interest in joining the officiating program. Please check out the New Officials page for further information.

Upgrading your certification: Officials who are eligible to upgrade from Level I to Level II may do so by registering for a Level II clinic in the fall, provided that they meet all eligibility requirements for Level II certification.

Registering for a clinic: In order to register for a clinic, an official will need to have previously created an eHockey account. If you have not done so before and need instructions on how to do so, please view the How-To document here.
