Officials:  Time-Keepers and On-Ice Officials

 

The Waterloo Ravens and Waterloo Wolves work together to manage the pool of timekeepers and on-ice officials under the leadership of the Chief Timekeeper and Referee-in Chief. 

 

Applications:

Expectations of the Job:

Timekeepers and on-ice officials are to be at the rink at least 30 minutes before game time.  If possible, the Assignor attempts to give officials the opportunity to work 2 or 3 games in a row.  The more time made available for booking by an official, the greater the likelihood of getting booked for games.

 

Timekeepers:

Following submission of the application, qualified candidates will be invited to a personal interview in September before final timekeepers are selected.  The training process consists of a review of written instructions together with job-shadowing of experienced timekeepers to learn how to fill out the game sheet and run the clock.  Timekeepers must be 14 years of age before Dec 31.  As a first year timekeeper, based on availability, you can expect between 6 to 10 games per month (paid approximately $10/game).

 

On-Ice Officials:

Following submission of the application, qualified candidates will be invited to a mandatory skating assessment and personal interview in September before final officials are selected.  The Waterloo Ravens are part of the OWHA and on-ice officials must be OWHA certified.  New officials must attend a clinic for certification and if certified in Alliance or OMHA, must pay a cross-over fee to be certified in OWHA.  Level 1 Officials must be at least 14 years of age and Level 2 Officials must be at least 16 years of age.  

 

Officials need to supply the following themselves:

> Skates

> Black Helmet (without a cage and with a visor approx. $60)

> Black Pants (splash pants will suffice)

> Whistle (approx. $20)

> Shin Guards, elbow pads, neck guard etc.

> Jersey (approx. $60)

> Clinic certification ($150)

> Cross-over fee to OWHA, if certified in a different organization (approx. $50)

Total Minimum Cost:  approx. $350

 

As a first year official, based on availability, you can expect between 20 and 30 games for the season (paid approximately $20/game). After your first year, costs each year drops to approximately $200/season which is paid off once you work only 10 games. More information on officiating on-ice can be found from Hockey Canada at:
