Further Scottish date added to officials courses for 2019/20 season

The IHUK Referee Section has added a further date to its list of Level One courses for the 2019/20 season.

Kilmarnock will host the session on Saturday, 16th November, thus adding a second Scottish date into the schedule alongside Fife.

The first course took place in Nottingham last weekend and saw around 20 delegates put through their paces on what it takes to become an official.

The prospective new officials underwent classroom sessions on rules and officiating standards before taking to the main Nottingham Arena ice pad for skating tests and a scrimmage involving skaters from Nottingham IHC.

Level 1 course manager, Tom Stephenson said: “The first course of the year was a success in Nottingham and we look forward to them completing their registration and joining #TeamStripes.

“We are also pleased to get our final course confirmed in Kilmarnock and hope to get a great turnout from prospective officials north of the border and building the officiating programme.

“The next course takes place in Bracknell on 20th October and places are still available for would-be officials to join us.”

The remaining dates are as follows:

  • Sunday, 20th October – Bracknell
  • Saturday, 16th November – Kilmarnock
  • Sunday, 2nd February – Fife
  • Sunday, 23rd February – Sheffield
