Before you re able to
get started this year, you must be registered. It
is your responsibility to make sure
that you either fill out the paper work and
mail it in with payment or give it to your local association Referee
in Chief. Information and details can be found on the ORA web site
A reminder to those of you who are 18 or older, you must have a valid
Police Records Check done early in the season and mailed to the ORA
forconfirmation (police Record checks
are only valid for 3 years). Without the PRC, you run the risk of not
being eligible for Provincials or Regionals.
Clinic information is available
on this site. The clinics are now found on the ringette canada website. You MUST go to www.officiatingringette.ca create a profile and then sign up for your preferred clinic.
guidelines for officials taking the Level 2/3 clinics read as
The minimum age for an official to
attend a Level 2/3 clinic is 16 years of age as of December 31 of
that playing season. The official must have also attended a Level 1
clinic a minimum of two playing seasons prior to the current playing
season. Note: Any officials that attended a Level 2/3 clinic prior to
the 2006 season that are underage will retain their current level
and may continue to be evaluated to Level 2 or Level 3 accordingly,
and will not be required to attend another Level 2/3 clinic when they
reach the age of 16.
I am looking forward to seeing all of
you on the ice this year, please don’t hesitate to contact me
if you have any questions or need some help.
Have a fantastic season!
