.6   A three (3)-man system should be used for Bantam and Midget hockey in ALLIANCE Tri City Minor Development League.

 

8.2 Referee Mileage:

 

ALLIANCE Hockey will adjust any increases in Referee rates and mileage to match the OMHA.  When mileage is paid it will be per kilometer each way with all officials in one car.

 

8.3 Referee Restriction:

 

.1   No ALLIANCE  Executive  Member, Officer, Convenor,  Team Manager or Coach or other team official of any participating team may act as Referee without first getting the approval of the Executive Director, except in cases of emergency; provided that a responsible official of each team agrees in writing to such an arrangement.

 

.2   Officials will only be allowed to officiate a maximum of six (6) games per day. Games may be done in sets of either two (2) or three (3) games, always with a minimum rest period of at least two (2) games (two (2) hours) between sets.

 

8.4 Procedures for When On-Ice Officials do not show for Games:

 

.1   Referees within the ALLIANCE officiate games, within their respective centres, at the Representative, Minor Development, Select and House League (Local) levels.

 

.2   The ALLIANCE and its member centres utilize both a three (3)- official system (one (1) Referee and two (2) linesmen) and a two (2)-official system (two (2) Referees) for their games. From time to time, the situation will arise where one or more of the officials assigned to a game does not appear for the game or cannot continue the game.  This policy documents, for the Referees and the teams, what to do in these situations. In all cases, the remaining on-ice official(s) in attendance must make every reasonable attempt to ensure the game is played to completion, however under no circumstances should an official undertake to officiate a game or continue a game alone.

 

8.5 Procedures for Games Normally Done With a Three (3)-Official or Four (4)-Official System System:

 

.1   Situation 1 Referee or One of the Linesmen Does Not Appear for the Game

 

If the Referee or one (1) of the Linesmen does not appear for the game, the remaining officials shall first attempt to find a qualified replacement  official by contacting their local Referee Assignor (if available) or any other qualified official from their Referee Association to complete the game using a three (3)-official system. If the remaining officials are unable to find a qualified replacement in a timely manner, then:

 

.1    In Four (4)-Official system, if a qualified replacement(s) cannot be found, continue with a thee (3)-official system, or;

 

.2   The two (2) remaining officials shall work the game as a two (2)-official system, or;

 

.3   One (1) of the remaining officials shall assume the duties of the Referee and work  the game as a one (1) Referee – one (1) linesman system.  This option should only be used in upper level games (Bantam and Midget) where one (1) of the remaining officials is not qualified or comfortable refereeing at that level of hockey.


 

.2   Situation 2 Two (2) of the Three (3) Officials Do Not Appear for the Game

 

If two (2) of the three (3) officials do not appear for the game, the remaining official shall first attempt to find qualified replacement officials by contacting their local Referee Assignor (if avail- able) or  any other qualified official from  their Referee Association to complete the game. If one (1) or two (2) replacement official(s) can be found, work the game as a two-official or three (3)-official system as the situation allows. If no replacement officials can be found in a timely manner, the game is to be suspended and reported to the appropriate authority.

 

.3   Situation 3 No Officials Appear for the Game

 

If all three (3) of the officials do not appear for the game, the home team is to contact the local Referee Assignor (if available) or any other qualified local Referees, to find qualified replacement officials. If replacement officials cannot be found in a timely manner, the game is to be suspended and reported to the appropriate authority.

 

.4   Situation 4 Referee or Linesman Cannot Complete the Game

 

If once the game is started, the Referee or one (1) of the Linesmen is injured, becomes ill or is otherwise unable to complete the game for any reason, the remaining officials shall:

 

.1   Complete the game using a two (2) official system, or;

 

.2   Complete the game using a one (1) Referee – one (1) lines- man system. This option should only be used in upper level games (Bantam and Midget) where one (1) of the remaining officials is not qualified or comfortable refereeing at that level of hockey.

 

8.6 Procedure For Games Normally Officiated With A Two (2)-Official System:

 

.1   Situation 1 One (1) Referee Does Not Appear or is Unable to Complete the Game

If the one (1) of the Referees does not appear for the game or is unable to continue the game due to injury, illness or any reason, the remaining Referee shall, in order:

.1   Contact the local Referee Assignor (if available) to find a qualified replacement official.

 

.2   Contact a qualified replacement official from their local Referee Association (if available) and continue using the two (2)-official system.

 

.3   In consultation with the Managers or Coaches of the competing teams appoint a player from each of the teams to act as linesmen and the remaining official shall become the Referee in a three (3)-official  system. This option should only be used if the remaining Referee is capable and has significant experience as a Referee in a three (3)-official system. Both teams must be in full agreement with this option.

 

.4   Suspend the game and advise the appropriate authority of the circumstances.

 

.2   Situation 2 - No Officials Appear for the Game

 

If both Referees do not appear for the game, the home team is to contact the local Referee Assignor (if available) or any other qualified local Referees, to find qualified replacement officials.  If replacement officials cannot be found in a timely manner, the game is to be suspended and reported to the appropriate authority.
