Without officials, the games could not go on! You are an integral part of what makes our game successful and we appreciate the time and effort you put in to keep our games running smoothly. For every game & tournament, communication is key! We have outlined a few details we hope will make things run smoothly, however in the unfortunate event you are unable to make your scheduled shift, please contact your ref supervisor immediately so that a replacement can be found. Ref supervisor contact information will be shared with all officials by RAB prior to the tournament.
We are looking forward to a fun weekend full of great ringette! Majority of games will take pace at TLC but if you are not there, we encourage you to swing by our Tournament Headquarters there, and check out some of the great things we have set up. If you are also a participating athlete, we wish you good luck in all of your games!
Please try to arrive 20 minutes prior to, and no less than 15 minutes before the start of your scheduled officiating game. Please check in & sign off on the ref schedule at the registration table.
If there is no check in 15 minutes before game time, officials supervisors will be contacted. If you are working back to back games, please initial for your following shift(s).
Please call your ref supervisor if you are running late to avoid panic at our registration tables.
If officials have not checked in, the following measures will be taken by the registration table volunteers:
A: Official is late - game starts with one Official until second Official arrives
B: Official is unable to be contacted/can not officiate game - ask Official from previous game to stay;
contact Ref Supervisor immediately
C: No Official(s) show for the game: ask Official(s) from previous game to stay; if this is not an option,
a replacement will be called in; contact Ref Supervisor immediately
Unsportsmanlike behaviour on ice will not be tolerated & will result in expulsion of the offending coach, staff or parent from following game(s). Unsportsmanlike behaviour of coaches, staff or parents are to be immediately reported after the game to Tournament Organizers.
Excessive yelling towards officials, use of profanity or not shaking hands at the end of a game is considered unsportsmanlike.
Respectful questioning of a call does not warrant a suspension
