The QMJHL is set to welcome a group of 16 officials from the Canadian Hockey League (CHL) for the CHL/NHL officials’ development camp.
The main objective of the camp is to grow the partnership with the NHL Officiating Committee to enhance the development of CHL officials. The camp will be held in Trois-Rivières, from December 9th to the 11th, 2011.
The officials will be tutored by two current NHL supervisors and former NHL officials Charles Banfield and Dan McCourt. They will be called upon to evaluate both referees and linesmen to possibly include them on their recruitment list.
During this event, the officials will have the opportunity of listening to two guest speakers, Bill McCreary, ex-NHL referee now employed by the NHL as a supervisor, and Dave Smith, responsible for the conditioning of NHL officials. The QMJHL will benefit from the attendance of its own supervisors, including the Director of Officiating, Richard Trottier, who will hold a workshop on the monitoring processes of officials. The Directors of officiating from the OHL and the WHL will also be on hand.
Held on an annual basis, this development camp is organized by the League hosting the MasterCard Memorial Cup Tournament.
