Referee in Chief - Phil Linklater (

The basic role of the official can be broken down into two simple words –safe and fair.

Welcome to the 2019/2020 Season. I hope you are all well rested and ready for another exciting year officiating with Semiahmoo MHA. Please make sure you read the information below carefully.

New Officials: The 2019 clinic for new officials has already taken place. Please contact Phil Linklater if you are interested in becoming certified as a Hockey Canada Official next season and would like to be included on the list to officiate games for Semiahmoo Minor Hockey Association.  The next clinic will be in September 2020.

Returning Officials: The links for certification clinics will be posted on the BC Hockey Website and all returning officials must attend one of these clinics. If you are over 16, you can register for level 2 certification. You must be certified each year through BC Hockey to officiate with SEMI Hockey.

This <link here> should answer any questions you have. Remember certification is the Responsibility of BC Hockey and if you have any questions/concerns, you should contact BC Hockey directly.

Looking forward to another great year!

Phil Linklater, RIC Semiahmoo MHA
