This section of the website has information regarding the set-up of referees across the UK.

All officials from Level 1 through to Elite are registered as part of the IHUK Referee Section.

We have an Officiating Management Team in place who are responsible for managing the performance of officials within specific levels.

Please see our IHUK Referee Section Management chart below for more information.

We have now run all level one courses for the 2018-19 season. We are currently planning the next set of courses, to be run early next season, and will announce these dates as soon as they are confirmed.

In order to hear from us automatically when dates are confirmed, please register your interest in becoming an official by completing your details here.

To find out more about the Level 1 courses and details of how to book your place, download the 2018-19 Course Information

We are unable to run courses in every rink in the country and so you will need to travel to the one that is closest or most convenient for you in terms of date.

In the meantime, if there is a question you are unsure of or would like further information that you cannot find in this section, please contact the relevant person below:

Referee Chief – Joy Johnston –
Deputy Referee Chief – Michael Evans –
Level 1 Course Manager – Tom Stephenson –

Please contact the Referee Chief and Deputy Referee Chief for all other enquiries.
