The International Hockey League will conduct training camp for referees and linesmen this Saturday and Sunday at the Onyx Ice Arena, home of the Rochester Rattlers travel hockey team, located in Rochester, Michigan.
The camp will be conducted by Brad Jones, IHL Vice President of Hockey Operations and Jerry Pateman, one of the IHL Supervisors of Officials.
“There will be discussion about adhering to the standard the IHL has worked hard at incorporating over the last two years,” stated Jones. “We will re-emphasize the rules and the heightened awareness towards the aggressive stick penalties that were discussed during the IHL's Annual Meeting.”
The officials will take part in two on-ice and two classroom sessions focusing on the IHL Rule Book and video clips from last season, clarifying areas that need to be addressed. They will also have an off-ice workout to help get ready for the upcoming season of the IHL.
