Essential Certifications for Team Officials

As outlined by BC Hockey, it's mandatory for all team officials, regardless of their role, to obtain valid certifications in the following areas:

Criminal Record Check (CRC)
The CRC is required every three years and is free of charge. It's crucial to save a screenshot or print your confirmation upon completing your CRC, as CRCs may take several weeks to be processed and returned to LGIHA. We can only roster officials who are at least "Pending (Receipt Received)."

Once you've completed your CRC online, please provide the LGIHA Administrator with a copy of your service number. This can be sent via email to admin@lgiha.ca. Please include your full name and date of birth in the email.

Respect in Sport (RIS) - Activity Leader
The RIS certification is required every five years. This is an online course that LGIHA will reimburse once completed, and you are rostered to a team. The RIS - Activity Leader course empowers participants to recognize and prevent abuse, bullying, harassment, and discrimination (ABHD) in the sporting environment.

Concussion Awareness Training Tool (CATT)
This one-time certification doesn't expire and is available free online. The CATT course is designed to provide the information you need to understand how to manage concussions in the sporting context, including how to recognize, manage, and prevent concussions.

By joining our team, you can make a meaningful difference in the lives of our players. If you love ice hockey, enjoy working with youth, and are committed to promoting a safe, respectful, and fun sporting environment, we want to hear from you.
