Officiating boys hockey can be one of the most exciting and challenging things that you do. Yes, the coaches and the players get all the glory, but it is the officials who keep the game running smoothly and fairly. In the old days, and to some extend today, the best way to learn how to officiate was to first be a part of a boys hockey team. But it does not have to be that way today.
