OFFICIALS: Johnston looks back on year of growth for #TeamStripes

March 22, 2017

So far over 60 new officials have completed the revised EIHA Level 1 referee course – the latest intake in Sheffield last Saturday.

Head of referee training and development Joy Johnston took the lead instructor role alongside Michael Evans and Nathan Ormond to put a full house of 24 new recruits to #TeamStripes through their paces with classroom learning and practical on-ice demonstrations.

In a brief moment of downtime, Joy spoke with about the progress the Referee Section has made in the past year and what further developments are likely to follow.

The final Level 1 course of this season is at Solihull this coming Saturday, 25 March, from 10.30am. Ā Details can be found on the EIHA website by clicking this link.

Thank you to Joy for her time in the interview, and good luck to all new would-be officials as they start their journey on the pathway to perhaps follow Joy into the Winter Olympic gold medal game.
