Game Incident Reports
During the course of the season, situations will arise where officials are required to report certain incidents that occur before, during, or after a game. Game Incident Reports (GIRs) are generally completed by the referee (in the three-official system) or the official who called the infraction (in the two-official and four-official systems).
Hockey Eastern Ontario requires that officials complete a Game Incident Report within 24 hours of the game any time when one or more of the following situations occur in your game:
- Calling of a Misconduct Penalty
- Calling of a Game Misconduct Penalty (including Checking from Behind 2+GM)
- Calling of any Major Penalty
- Calling of a Gross Misconduct
- Calling of a Match Penalty
- Received a report of discrimination from a league official, a team official, or off-ice official
- Unusual Circumstances (Power Outage, rink issues, Safety concerns, etc…)
- Situations during the pre-game warm up (Neck Guards, Too many players, etc.)
Game Incident Reporting will be covered in your online and in-person clinics to prepare and assist officials with some specific procedures and guidelines in reporting an incident. Your Referee-in-Chief is also available to assist you with incident reporting should you have any questions or require assistance.
