D6 Referee Program

Bantam / 15U players and parents:

The District 6 Mite Referee Program is looking for bantam and 15U aged boys and girls who are interested in learning the skills necessary to officiate hockey.  Our program has been in existence for 18 years...and provides referees for upper-level mite hockey games through-out District 6.  The goal of our program is to prepare young boys and girls to be eligible to referee District 6 hockey games when they reach 16-year-old.

This program is designed for players who are serious about getting involved as a youth hockey official.  Mite referees will receive instruction in officiating procedures and positioning...and will receive occasional mentoring at the rink from experienced officials.  While it is our goal to make officiating fun and initial monetary investment of $100-$150 is typical.  Please keep in mind...

All mite referees must be registered and certified with USA Hockey as a Level 1 official.
All mite referees must attend a USA Hockey Level 1 referee seminar (on Zoom).
All mite referees must pass the USA Hockey Level 1 rules test.

All mite referees must pass the USA Hockey Level 1 education modules.
All mite referees must be equipped with appropriate referee uniform and equipment
-  Striped referee sweater
-  Black pants
-  Black helmet (with half shield)
-  Finger whistle

Mite hockey games are generally played on weekends starting in early January.  Mite referees are typically assigned in pairs...two (2) officials per game.  Game fees are $24 per referee per game.  Game assignments are made in advance though our web-based scheduling system ( should not interfere with your hockey game or practice schedule, school, church or family activities.  Games are located at rinks through-out the District 6 area...and some parental involvement is required (driving, scheduling, etc).
