The Ice Hockey UK Referee Section are running their latest Level 1 course in Streatham today, June 12, and officials are delighted that the course is running at full capacity.

Level 1 co-ordinator Andy Allsopp said: “We have had phenomenal interest in this course since it was announced and we had to close the course for bookings to be sure we could accommodate everyone in the classroom and on the ice.

“Thank you to everyone that has booked or enquired about a Level 1 course, please keep an eye on the social media and website as we are looking for more dates to be announced soon.”

Like the rest of the sport, the Referee Section is getting back on its feet following the COVID pause and will be looking to recruit new officials while working with existing members of #TeamStripes to support their development through the levels from junior hockey through to Elite League in the UK and onwards to IIHF assignments.
