Toronto, Ont. – The Ontario Hockey League (OHL) is pleased to announce that it will be hosting its 1st Annual Officiating Prospect Development Combine to be held from June 2-4 at the Quinte Sports & Wellness Centre in Belleville, Ont.
This Combine will not only identify top officiating prospects in Ontario and the United Sates, but will also serve to enhance the development of these officials as they progress through different levels of the game.
This event is open to current high-level hockey officials as well as individuals that have recently completed their playing careers and are looking for opportunities to remain in the game. No experience is necessary. Individuals that apply must be excellent skaters, in great physical condition, and have a keen interest and desire to officiate at a high level.
The Combine will be a significant opportunity for officials to demonstrate their officiating desires and abilities. Some participants attending this event will have the opportunity to be selected to attend the OHL Officiating Training Camp in August 2022, with the possibility of competing for a spot on the OHL Officiating Team.
With its close working relationship with the Ontario Hockey Federation, Hockey Canada and the National Hockey League, the OHL is not only the top development league for players and coaches, but officials aspiring to reach the next level as well.
Interested individuals can register using the form below. Registration will close on Friday, April 22. As there are limited spaces available for this event, applications will be reviewed by a selection committee and those chosen to participate in the Combine will be contacted via email by April 29.
