The Nepean Minor Hockey Association Officiating Program is run by a ten-member executive panel, and they meet regularly to discuss officiating issues and concerns. Officials are reviewed by the officiating executive in several ways.

Firstly, all officials must certify with Hockey Canada at the start of each season by attending a clinic and writing an exam. At these clinics, rule changes are emphasized, along with a rulebook review, the review of officiating procedures, and group discussion of different officiating concerns.

Throughout the year, officials attend regular meetings, complete rule quizzes, receive supervisions and evaluations from more senior officials, and a select group of them participate in a 'Program of Excellence', officiating higher levels of competitive minor hockey. The Nepean Minor Hockey Association prides itself on having one of the best development programs in the HEO.

If you have any questions about the officiating program, contact our Referee-In-Chief, Nico Bidin, by e-mail. Other members of our executive group can be contacted here.
