Foundational Training Program for Coaching

This program will aid the development of coaches who will then be able to effectively give the fundamental hockey and life skills to players. Not only does this program aim to provide you with basic coaching material, but it also has been designed to help you understand that there is more to coaching than just instructing players what to do.

The purpose of this program is to provide you with the necessary skills to help develop the basic skills of the young players in Hong Kong. Developing both hockey and life skills in the younger generation will provide Hong Kong with building blocks at the grass roots level. This program aims to improve participants’ sense of personal well-being and create a more complete understanding of what constitutes fair play. It is essential to develop these skills for the following reasons:

  • Continue the growth of inline hockey in Hong Kong
  • Creating an attitude of life-long participation in inline hockey
  • Improving not only their inline hockey skills, but also life skills.
  • Developing players further as they get older

The key ingredient to this program will focus on:


Referee Training Clinics

To begin one's training in the art of refereeing the person can assist a certified referee officiate games until such time as a training course is offered. Time spent assisting to officiate games is not credited toward the requirements for certification (see level 1 below) but it is highly recommended to assist in as many games as possible before taking the course as this experience will familiarize you with the rules and also how to apply them. A log of games that you officiate signed by the certified referee and scorekeeper is recommended. This may prove helpful when applying to enroll in the level 1 course, particularly if the course is over-subscribed.

Level 1 V Referee

To get certified at this beginning level the candidate must be 13 years of age or older, of either gender. They must take the 6-hour training course offered by the Hong Kong China Inline Hockey Association and referee at a League level for a minimum of 5 games. At least 2 games must be at Bantam age level (U 14) or above. Following this training and experience, a Master Referee (IHA trainer level) will access candidates and if their skill and knowledge are considered satisfactory they will be certified a Referee (which is the HIA's level one certification).

The Hong Kong China Inline Hockey Association will issue a certificate and badge on successful completion.

Level 2 V Senior Referee

Candidates for this level must be 18 years of age or older and have refereed two full League seasons of at least 10 games plus officiated at least one international tournament. They must have substantial experience at adult and/or senior teen (U17 and U 19) age levels. A panel of Referees at Senior or Master Level will access the application based on the record and skill of the candidate. Senior Referees will be eligible to be recommended by the Hong Kong China Inline Hockey Association to officiate at international tournaments suitable for their experience.

The Hong Kong China Inline Hockey Association will issue a certificate and badge on successful completion.

Level 3 V Master Referee

The Hong Kong China Inline Hockey Association can confer this status on a referee who has achieved a "Trainer" level in knowledge, experience and skill. A Master Referee will be expected to conduct at least one training course per year and mentor up to 10 trainees. They can recommend candidates for certification for level 1 "V Referee and level 2 "V Senior Referee (as panel member). A certificate and badge will be awarded by the Hong Kong China Inline Hockey Association.

We play inline hockey at many skill levels domestically and internationally. The National Referee level was created for two reasons, one to get the International playing rules into a country that was developing the sport. The second reason was to allow the developing countries to implement a referee program that will train referees not only for domestic play but to develop skills for advanced International play.

The association is involved in organizing and hosting referee clinics throughout the year.
