The NEZRC takes development of our young officials very seriously as you are the future! As one might think there isn’t much opportunity for reffing….you're wrong! There have been many officials from Alberta and across Canada that have made a Professional or Amateur career as an Official, and it all starts here in your local Referee Zone.

The North East zone works alongside Hockey Alberta & Hockey Canada to present a number of development opportunities that are linked and explained under this section. These are great opportunities to develop and advance your officiating careers.  If youhaven't yet received these opportunities, remain patient and keep doing everything you can control to be a better official every time you step on the ice.

If you'd like to know the opportunities available please contact Derek Krys, our development coordinator. You can find his contact info on the Contact Us link.
