As with many other sports, it is the referee’s role to enforce the laws of the game, punish the infractions of any player toward another, cautioning a player with a card when necessary and maintaining the safety of players on the rink.
Although a role of great responsibility becoming a referee can also attract great satisfaction and reward. There are opportunities to referee for your club, at national level and after appropriate training and experience, internationally.
Your first move if you would like to become a referee should be to contact your local club and they will be able to direct you to the appropriate training and offer an opportunity to develop your skills.
