2024 Entry Level Referee School
WOAA will be hosting a referee school for anyone interested in getting certified. 
This will be for entry level only.
If you are interested in becoming a referee, please reach out to our referee scheduler, Kevin Wright at [email protected] with the following information:
Name, Date of Birth, email address and the phone number, by Monday April 21, 2024.

Time: 8am-5pm each day
Location: Central Huron Community Complex, 239 Bill Fleming Dr, Clinton ON, 519-482-9183

The participants will receive two hours of ice time, one hour each day as well as the additional class room instruction.  


Participants will need to bring regular skates (no goalie skates), a helmet minus the full cage and warm clothing when on the ice, jogging clothing would work for them.  The school will be open to people from the age of 14-45. If a person is turning 14 by December 31st of this year they can attend the school.

If you are below 18 years by October 19th of this year, then they do not need a Vulneral Sector Police Check (VSC) to attend.  Those people who are 18 years of age will require the police check to attend this school and can not attend unless that police check has been filed with me so it can be sent to the OHF who handle all police checks for Ontario. You must obtain a VSC police check from your local police department, most in the area will use the OPP online system.  Participants who need the VSC will require a letter from the OHF.  This form letter can be obtained by going to the OMHA home page then at the top is referee, click on it, a sub box will open, click on resources then go to forms, scroll down to OHF letter request to police services for VSC. Fill out the form and include it in your submission to the OPP online form.  The cost of this police check is $41.00 and is good for three years. 

You will be required to do the two online courses like others in the past have done. HU-1/2 officiating and Respect In Sport -Officials. Those courses will have to be done first before I can give them the link to register for the school.  The cost of these two programs will be $20 dollars and $21 dollars plus the HST, they have to pay those on line.

Once the courses are completed,  you will be sent the link to register for the school.  
Cancellations policy: Once booked, you have till September 1st, 2024, to cancel; in which case You will get 50% of your money back, anybody after that date will forfeit all monies paid to attend the school.
