Officials within the SJAMHA operate within the APSJ (Assinboine Park St. James) officials program.

Whether you are a first year official or you have several years of experience, mentors will help you develop skills in the following order:

  1. Positioning-where you want to be; the cone system.
  2. Procedures-how you work with your partner, how to drop a puck, icings, offsides and what your responsibilities are.
  3. Game Management-impact penalties, communication, setting a tone, and developing a game management tool belt.
