Level 3 Program

Alberta Roller Hockey Level 3 Officiating Program                                                                          

The Level 3 program was created to take Alberta Level 2 officials to the next phase of their progression. The course is designed to push you on your knowledge of the RHC rulebook and test your ability and desire to learn the different playing rules that our sport competes under in North America and around the world. The course will also provide training and guidance for you to become a senior official and contribute to the next generation of officials around Alberta. This entire process is to prepare you so that one day when you get the opportunity to officiate inline-roller games under a different setting and no matter what the speed or quality of the game you will be ready.
