Congratulations Novice B3 Blue


Novice B3 Blue

Congratulations to the Richmond Royals Novice B3 Blue team for winning their second tournament of the year!

First, they won the Richmond Novice B Tournament on their home ice at Richmond Arena (Nov 28th-30th).  The team played outstanding all weekend and after going undefeated in the round robin, they won two extremely exciting games in the medal round.  In the Semi-final, they beat the Leitrim Hawks in a shootout 2-1 and then in the final beat the Nepean Raiders in OT, 2-1 to take home the gold in their host tournament.   

In their second tournament of the year, the Novice B3 Blue team took home the gold medal again at the Carleton Place Minor Hockey Novice B tournament on Dec 22nd.   In another exciting final, the Royals beat the Leitrim Hawks 3-2 to bring home another gold medal. 

The team did a terrific job and were thrilled with their victories and remain undefeated in tournament play!  Way to go B3 Blue!!!!

Hockey. It is our life.

Gil Read Memorial Foundation


Helping less fortunate kids compete in sports across the City of Ottawa.

The foundation’s program is set up to promote, foster and increase access to amateur sport through the provisions of financial assistance and support to children ages 5 to 18 who might not otherwise be able to participate in amateur sport due to the associated costs.

The program assists financially disadvantaged families in getting their individual children, aged 5 to 18 involved in sports and recreational programs

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.

Grants will be distributed to youth and children between the ages of 5 and 18, residing in Ottawa and the surrounding area. When distributing grants, preference will be given to individuals who;

o   Have a family income falling within Statistics Canada’s low-income cutoffs.

o   Are applying for an introductory or house league program.

Individuals may apply for grants more than once in a calendar year; however, grants issued will not exceed $500 in a calendar year. Special circumstances will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

Applications will be reviewed by an adjudication committee made of up at least 5 directors of Gil Read Memorial Foundation.

We have the opportunity to sponsor as many as 5 children in your organization. Please visit our website at for an application form.

If you would like to discuss this with us please feel free to contact me at 613-236-0664 ext. 223 or by email at

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
