MMHL Referee Rules


For all games, it will be the duty of the home team to provide all on ice and office officials, all of whom shall be on hand by game time. The home team is responsible for paying the referee and linesmen.


Novice, Atom, PeeWee, Bantam and Midget will be played with a three-man system.  

The home team will arrange for a neutral referee for all playoff games for all divisions in the MMHL. The two teams involved must approve any home referee at the beginning of the series if they are used for any playoff games.


Referees must be registered with the SHA and must be at least two hockey groups above the age of the players. Teams and team officials will be expected to properly respect game officials, who will in turn, strictly and fairly enforce the rules of the game.

For playoffs

Refs will only be assigned for the final.

If you request neutral officials all mileage will be paid by the requesting team.

All Games are to be 2-1 minimum or 2-2
