Referee Section Website

This section of the website has information regarding the set-up of referees across the UK.

All officials from Level 1 through to Elite are registered as part of the IHUK Referee Section.

We have an Officiating Management Team in place who are responsible for managing the performance of officials within specific levels.

Please see our IHUK Referee Section Management chart below for more information.

We ran five Level 1 courses in the 2017-18 season. If you did not manage to book onto one of these courses then don’t worry, we are looking to run courses in the summer of 2018 and throughout the 2018-19 season.

If you are interested to hear from us once the dates of the courses are confirmed, then please fill in the online expression of interest form.

This form allows people who are interested in becoming a referee to register their interest with the IHUK Referee Section.

Throughout the season we look to run the following number of courses…

– Three Level 1 courses in England: North, South and Midlands

– Two Level 1 courses in Scotland: West and East

We are unable to run courses in every rink in the country and so you will need to travel to the one that is closest or most convenient for you in terms of date.

By registering your interest via this form, the IHUK Referee Section will be able to notify you when the dates are confirmed for the upcoming Level 1 courses so you can book your place to attend.

For further information about the Level 1 referee courses please refer to our ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ document.
