Officiating​ ​Development

The development of officials plays an important aspect in the continued development of inline hockey in Ireland. With the help of CERILH, Inline Hockey Ireland is implementing a development plan for officials to ensure there is continued development and support for all officials.


The structure involves 3 levels of qualification with the view that in future higher leagues will require higher qualifications. As a referee progresses through the levels of qualifications, their rate​ ​of​ ​expenses​ ​will​ ​increase.​ ​The​ ​rate​ ​of​ ​expenses​ ​for​ ​each​ ​level​ ​will​ ​be​ ​updated​ ​year​ ​on​ ​year. All official’s will be required to do a separate registration on top of the usual IHI registration. This will cost €30 per season and covers access to all courses and development days throughout the season.

Every registered official will be given an IHI officiating jersey free of charge, but should it need replaced the official shall be responsible for the cost. All officials are responsible for the rest​ ​of​ ​their​ ​equipment,​ ​including​ ​black​ ​referee​ ​pants.


IHI will put forward any interested Level 3 qualified official to officiate at World and European events through World Skate and CERILH, respectively. Please note this may require further training with World Skate/CERILH to gain an international qualification. If necessary, and where possible, IHI will​ ​financially​ ​assist​ ​anyone​ ​wishing​ ​to​ ​pursue​ ​these​ ​opportunities.
