Nominations for Director Positions

URGENT REQUEST - Volunteers Needed

To all, 

As you are aware, the RMMHA Annual General Meeting  is soon approaching on April 16th.  What you may not be aware of;  is our association will be losing two crutial positions. The Director of Canteen and the Treasurer positions are up for nomination. We currently have no nominees for these positions.

Without these positions in the association , it makes it incredibly difficult to run a season as we have done so well in the past. Without a running canteen and without the key financial control of the association, it will no doubt hinder both the players and the association .

If you or someone you know would fit either of these positions, please email our RMMHA Secretary at soonest.  

The following descrptions below have been taken from the RMMHA Constitution 2013/2014 , which is aslo located at

RMMHA Appreciation Day

Hi RMMHA families,

Congratulations to Richmond Royals Atom A

Richmond Royals Atom A team goes undefeated in Waterloo Friendship Tournament
In a nail-biting shootout finish, the Richmond Royals Atom A team won the championship game 5-4 against the Waterloo AtoMc Red, and went undefeated in the 12th Annual Waterloo Wolves Fun Festival Tournament.
After defeating three local Waterloo teams 6-1, 3-1, and 2-1 in round robin play, Richmond opened up the Championship game with an early lead when Ryan Visutski, scored in the first period, assisted by Nathan Glover and Devin Kinkade. Later in the period, Richmond ran into some penalty trouble and Waterloo capitalized on the powerplay to tie things up. Richmond bounced back and took a 2-1 lead in the second period on a goal scored by Owen Chatland and assisted by Alex Bendall and Jeremy Winger. In the third period Waterloo tied things up on another power play goal. The game ended at 2-2 in regulation time and went onto a sudden victory shoot out. Despite a controversial no-goal call on a shot by Ryan Visutski, Richmond players Alex Bendall and Nathan Glover were able to score in the shoot out, only to be matched by Waterloo goals which still left the game tied. The Royal’s winning goal came from Cameron Beresford, as Richmond goalie Nathan Francis denied the Waterloo attempt with a glove save.
Richmond Royals’ Head Coach Daryl Kinkade said, “This was a great way to end the season. The team played some of the best hockey they’ve played all year.” This was the first tournament championship win for Coach Kinkade, who has coached for 13 years for the Richmond Munster Minor Hockey Association.

A maximum of $500 would be provided for each child to assist with expenses. The maximum per child is required in order to assist as many children as possible.

HEO Forms - 2014 / 2015 Season

Becoming a Game Official


To become an Official in Richmond you need to first contact the Referee-in-Chief (RIC) to inquire the officiating needs for the upcoming season. The age that we start to look at accepting officials is 14 years old. The job as an official can be very demanding and a high level of maturity is needed. Newer and entry level officials will start off doing house league novice and atom games. The majority of these games are Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Officiating also requires a high level of commitment. There are many persons counting on you show up, know your rules and act professionally. These include your partner(s), coaching staff, parents, and most importantly the kids.
With acceptance by the RIC, you will now need to get certified by Hockey Canada. Locally it is done through HEO, Hockey Eastern Ontario.
With new officials, certification is a two-step process which the official is required to complete:

  • An online training program through Hockey University
  • Completion of an in-person certification clinic, including obtaining a passing grade on the national certification exam
When you are ready to sign up for your in-person clinic please take the following points into consideration:
  • New Officials must complete the Hockey University program before they can register for an in-person clinic. New Officials must start their certification at Level I or Level II. A new official who is over the age of 16 may go directly to Level II at their discretion. It is worth noting that your level of certification will not play a factor in the amount or level of assignments you receive.
  • New officials must register for an in-person clinic marked for ‘*Official - New Youth Referee Clinics’. The information provided at this clinic is specific to officials who are new. In subsequent years, an official may register for a normal re-certification clinic.
For more information regarding the different levels within the Hockey Canada Officiating Program (HCOP) please visit the Certifications page. For further information about the clinic schedule and registration process please visit the clinic schedule page.

Once you have completed the entire certification process, you should inform your local RIC and he will be able to provide you with instructions on how to get your first set of assignments.

The Referee-in-Chief for Richmond is Evan Moorhouse. Contact email
