Referee in Chief - Phil Linklater (

The basic role of the official can be broken down into three simple words – safe, fair, respect.

Welcome to the 2022/2023 Season. 

Officials Information

***NEW for 2022-23*** BC Hockey announced that they have decreased the cost of all officials courses to $5!

We have gone through a year with only a few new officials who certified from last year.  Moving forward, we anticipate needing approximately 20 new officials this year. If you know someone interested in becoming an official, please have them click the button above to be put on the list.  The certification process for new officials under 16 is different and I will be directly contacting new officials as to where and when the certification clinic will be.  We are looking at running a new officials clinic on August 28th (details to come). If you are interested in becoming an official (2010 birth year and up), CLICK HERE to register and take the online pre-requisite course. Please also ensure to fill out THIS FORM to be sure our Referee in Chief as your contact information.

Returning Officials

The procedure for certification clinics will be posted on the BC Hockey Clinic’s Website soon. All returning officials must attend one of these clinics which may be online this year.  If you are over 16, you can register for level 2 certification. Also, new this year, if you are under the age of 16, have been actively officiating for two years you can register as a level 2 official if you have been given permission by your association’s RIC.

BC Hockey will also be reducing the fees for this year for anyone who paid for a certification clinic last year. Details on this are below from BC Hockey.

You must be certified each year through BC Hockey to officiate with Semiahmoo Ravens Hockey.

The link below should answer any questions you have when BC Hockey has updated this section for this season.   Remember certification is the Responsibility of BC Hockey and if you have any questions/concerns, you should contact BC Hockey directly.

Looking forward to another great year!
