Testimonials

don-thumbsup-resizedMISSION STATEMENT

The development of officials is taken very seriously at our camps and for that reason we are committed to continually improve our on-ice and classroom sessions.  Our staff consists of the very best of amateur and professional officials who share their experiences both on and off the ice and work hard to provide you with the very best of on-ice instruction.  We take great pride in providing students interactive classroom sessions which can be put into practice on the ice.

Our camps are open to males and females, minimum age 13 at time of camp.  Past camp participants ranged in age from 13 to 57 with experiences ranging from none to all the way up to many years at level 6.  Whether your goal is to get into the professional ranks, JR. hockey or move up to the Pee Wee level, our camps are designed to provide you with the necessary tools needed to enhance your officiating skills or simply just get you started in officiating.

I would like to thank our many sponsors for their generous support and commitment over the years as their involvement has better enabled us to provide you with this weekend experience.  We do ask that you visit our sponsor page and support those who support you.

As we near the end of this hockey season, I ask you to continue to bring positive energy and effort to your game……..Vow to Wow!
