Assigning Fees: Leagues or MHA’s requesting that Exhibition, Regular Season & Playoff games (Tournaments not included) be assigned by the Officials Committee will be charged a maximum of $125 per team, per season. Tournaments (excluding Provincial Tournaments) can be assigned by the Officials Committee at a rate of $6.00 per game.
Officiating Systems: The above rates apply to the four (4) and three (3) official system. The rate for a two (2) official game is 80% of the game fee listed in the applicable 3 official category above. Where no rate is specified that official system cannot be utilized at that level.
Ice Slot Time: These rates are for ice slots that are 90 minutes & longer and for U9 ½ ice hockey that is 60 minutes. An approved rate sheet (Supplemental Officials Rates) is available for ice slots 75 minutes & shorter. In addition, Leagues or MHA’s wishing to utilize overtime and/or shootouts to declare the winner of each game (excluding Provincial Tournaments) may be subject to an additional fee of $20 per official, as determined by the Officials Committee Chair (or designate).
Please note: Officials are assigned the Category of Hockey based on their ability.


All rates are paid according to Hockey Alberta current rate sheets.

All officials are required to fill out a timesheet for each game in order to be paid. Timesheets are located in binders in the ref room in the arenas.

Payments are made every Wednesday by Etransfer for the prior week, Monday-Sunday. Returned Etransfers are assessed a fee of $10.
