In 2013, SMHA and the Saskatoon Referees Association amalgamated to create the Saskatoon Minor Hockey Association Referees Division.  The Referees Division is led by the SMHA Referee-in-Chief, Clint Joyes, and his Referees Division Committee.  This partnership will allow the senior referees from the Referees Division Committee to help make our referees better.  SMHA looks after administration, such as assigning and paying homorariums to the referees.

We welcome you to take a look around at our informational pages:
- Great reasons to become an official and how to get started
- Resources for registered SMHA officials

We look forward to another great hockey season in Saskatchewan and appreciate all the enthusiasm of our group of officials as we get ready to drop the puck!
