Following recent updates from Manitoba's public health officials, Hockey Manitoba has made the decision that effective Tuesday September 29, 2020, all Level 1 and Level 2 officiating clinics will transition to an online format.
Beginning this week, individuals registered for Level 1 and Level 2 officiating clinics will receive a Zoom invitation and will be required to complete their testing online so access to a computer is necessary. All Zoom sessions will begin at 9:00 a.m. and will take place on the same day that they were originally scheduled for. Participants will receive confirmation from Hockey Manitoba that they are a certified official following the clinic.
Please check the eHockey website for officiating clinic information and the Officials section of the Hockey Manitoba website for any updates for the 2020 - 2021 season.

Effective Monday September 28, 2020, players, coaches, staff, volunteers, spectators, and officials will be required to wear face masks in facilities where Hockey Manitoba-sanctioned activities take place.
Players and officials are not required to wear face masks while on the ice engaging in physical activity but are required to wear face masks in the dressing room prior to getting on the ice. Team officials, including coaches, are required to wear face masks while on the bench.
Masks will also be mandatory for all facilitators and participants attending in-person coaching and officiating clinics across the province.
Based on the recommendation by the Province of Manitoba, Hockey Manitoba and its Board of Directors have made the decision to not allow sanctioned tournaments or events to take place prior to November 1, 2020. The decision also includes the cancellation of Hockey Manitoba’s U15 AAA Male and Female Showcase event that was scheduled for October 2 – 4, 2020, which will not be rescheduled.
Travel permit applications will not be accepted for out of province travel until October 15, 2020 and will only be granted for travel occurring after November 1, 2020.
The Return to Play plan incorporates the current requirements outlined in Stages 1 – 4 of the Government of Manitoba’s Restoring Safe Services Plan, health and safety guidelines from Hockey Canada, and programming, registration and sanctioning for Hockey Manitoba.
Part of our commitment includes an ongoing and regular review of our RTP protocols based on the latest recommended COVID-19 health precautions, which will help to enhance the positive hockey experience under the province’s health directives.
The Return to Hockey Plan has three phases:
Hockey Manitoba will continue to strive towards placing our members in a safe and healthy environment. Physical distancing, mask wearing, good hygiene and screening are necessary steps that must be practiced in order to return to hockey safely, and will assist in reducing the risk to the hockey community.
