Officiating Advisor - Stephane Angelique
The development structure involves 4 levels of qualification:
To obtain a qualification an official must attend the relevant courses and achieve pass marks in theory and practical assessments. Over time as officials gain experience they will be given assignments in higher divisions. As part of our development model all officials will be assessed and supported throughout the season, similar to a coach of any team.
IHI will put forward interested Level 3 qualified official to officiate at World and European events through World Skate and World Skate Europe, respectively. Please note this may require further training with to gain an international qualification. If necessary, and where possible, IHI will financially assist anyone wishing to pursue these opportunities.
Officials get paid a mileage rate, daily rate and per game rate, creating generous expenses for the time and effort given up.
