Timekeeper Recruitment Information
The Guelph Hockey Referees Association (GHRA) will begin to receive applications to become a timekeeper commencing February 1st.. We will evaluate how many timekeepers we'll need for the coming season and then review all of the applications received.
If your application is accepted, you will be contacted regarding the Timekeepers clinic which usually takes place in September.
Please be aware that we receive more applications than we need and that we unfortunately are not able to accept all applicants. Applications are evaluated based on hockey experience, age and previous experience as a timekeeper
Also, the minimum age to become a timekeeper is 14 as of December 31st of the season you're applying for (ex: for the 2020-2021 season, anyone born in 2006 or before may apply to be a timekeeper).
GHRA provides the training clinic that teaches you the proper way to fill out a game sheet and all the duties that are required as a timekeeper/scorer. At the clinic you are given a manual for future reference of the correct procedures.
For your first assignments you will be paired up with an experienced timekeeper who will show you how to do the job. Once both you and GHRA are comfortable that you know the job you will work on your own (higher divisions of hockey such as Midget are always done in pairs).
