This section of the website has information regarding the setup of EIHA referees and also information about becoming a referee as well.
Many of us do it for the love of the sport of ice hockey and to support our local teams. We are always in need of more help on the ice, and it’s a great way to develop your skating skills. If you are a player it allows you more ice time to develop and can give you a competitive edge by having more knowledge of the rules.
We run level one seminars throughout the season and more information can be found on the level one course page.
