What is the minimum number of players you need for a team to play?
According to Hockey Canada's Referee Casebook, in order to play a game, a team must have 6 eligible players (not necessarily a goaltender) to start the game.
How can we order extra game books?
How do I find the stats for the 2018-2019 season?
You must know what tier the team / player was in that season. From the Season dropdown box, select the 2018-2019 Hockey Season and choose the team or the player from the list.
When will our full schedule be available?
Full schedules will be posted as soon as the tiering and scheduling group has met and finalized the team match-ups and coordinated ice slots. This takes some time, especially with considerations for travel and blackout dates. For the 2021-22 Season you should expect the full season schedules no later than Thursday, November 25 for the U11 through U18 divisions. U9 schedules should be posted by Thursday, December 2. Governors will have notice if there will be any other delays.
What happens when someone gets suspended but is supposed to referee a game the next day?
Normally, a suspended person is not allowed to ref until the suspension is served. There is an exemption to this rule if the person cannot give the RIC 24 hours notice to schedule someone else to ref in their place. The appropriate discipline coordinators from the league and Hockey Alberta must be notified if this is the case.
