Become an Official

Officiating for the 2023-2024 season

Becoming an Official is a rewarding and challenging experience. Officials have the opportunity to develop key skills and give back to the sport.

Edmonton Ringette has a selection process in place which includes an online application and an interview. Those accepted as Officials for the season will take a one-day clinic through Ringette Alberta and Ringette Canada. On-ice training will include mentoring and evaluations once the season begins.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding officiating, please contact our Director of Officials Kim Patten, at



Applications for the 2023-2024 season are being accepted Please fill out the form here

Please do not register for a level one clinic through Ringette Canada until you have been officially hired as a new official.
