Cochrane Referees Association: Welcome

Welcome to the site for Cochrane hockey officials!

The 2011/12 season is just around the corner!

It's hard to believe, but it's time to think about the upcoming season as we're already through the middle of summer (for what that has been worth!) and before you know it, school will be starting! (Sorry, someone had to say it!). 

We're anticipating a lot of changes this year as last season the commitment level was lacking and below our expected standards. We're hoping for a stronger group of officials to be more involved and to continue to develop into elite referees.

We also look forward to our continued relationships with players, coaches, parents and all who visit the arena to enjoy the great game of hockey.

The Cochrane Referees Association is grateful once again to be strongly supported by the Cochrane Minor Hockey Association. We have been fortunate with this relationship as it has afforded us to build a strong association and tradition in the Cochrane community.

Please be sure to visit other sections of the site for more information on both minor hockey's and our organizations.

Thanks to all CRA officials for their consideration of working another great season in Cochrane!

Time to get in shape!

Well it's already that time of the year and this season's clinic is scheduled for the weekend of Saturday, September 17th and Sunday, September 18th, 2011.

The clinic will be held at both the Spray Lakes Rec Centre and Cochrane Arena. Further details can be found on the Clinic Info page to confirm classrooms and ice sessions. Classes are expected to run from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm each day.

Registration for the clinic must be done online and a link to the Online Clinic Registration site can be done thru the Central Zone site at starting July 28th!  

Please contact Brandon Hamilton at or (403) 861-7945 for additional information.

If you cannot make this weekend but do want to officiate this year, then be sure to select an appropriate clinic from the list of scheduled clinics when doing your online registration. A complete listing is also available on the main page of the Online Registration site for your reference.

Thanks and we hope to see you out at the clinic!
