Blank Application forms for new officials and timekeepers can be accessed via the following link to the Wolves website (check back if it is not posted yet):
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.
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 complete the electronic 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.
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. Level 1 Officials must be at least 14 years of age and Level 2 Officials must be at least 16 years of age. On-ice officials are also expected to complete any electronic game sheet requirements.

> Clinic certification
As a first year official, based on availability, you can expect between 20 and 30 games for the season. More information on officiating on-ice can be found from Hockey Canada at:
