About Luca

I started officiating during my playing career because I thought I could make some pocket cash and have some spending money during school. My passion for officiating grew through the help of my RIC at the time, and I eventually started to take it more seriously as the games got better. My long-term goal for officiating is to be hired by and work for the Western Hockey League as well as be IIHF licensed.

Giving back to the community is essential to me because as I was coming up, I was fortunate enough to have the resources from various supervisors and mentors that helped me get to where I am today. Therefore, it is only right for me to put in an immense amount of time and effort back into the minor league programs and help young officials find their passion and guide them to their chosen paths.

A fun fact about me is that I play all types of sports, such as basketball, ultimate, football, track, etc. I just love to get active and have some fun. I am currently a full-time student majoring in HR and work part-time.

Tanner got into officiating to view the game through a different perspective and to make a bit of pocket change. He has his eyes set on officiating at a National High performance event this year and making a deep push into KIJHL playoffs. He believes giving back to the officiating community is important and always appreciates providing mentorship and advice to younger officials. "Watch as a spectator, react as a referee", is one of Tanner's favourite pieces of advice.

About James

I got into officiating when I was 13, it started as a way to make some extra money and be around the game more during the season. 10 years later the money’s even better than it used to be, but love of the game is what keeps me coming back.

Coming up through minor hockey, I had some really great mentors and people who supported me. So I got into the mentoring program to try and give back, and be a similar support for today's younger officials. It can be very lonely out there as a young official and a lot of them quit every year, my goal is to offer my support and hopefully help them overcome some of that adversity.

Believe it or not the game needs officials and they can be very hard to come by, out of everyone I grew up working with in Richmond, only a handful of us are still officiating.

About Ryan

At the age of 13, I delved into officiating with the Richmond Minor Hockey Association, fueled by my love for the game. As an official, I found myself immersed in a unique perspective that kept me closely connected to the sport I adored. Over six fulfilling years, I made lasting friendships, learned valuable life lessons, and discovered the rewards of hard work and dedication.

The camaraderie with fellow officials and players on the ice fostered a strong sense of unity, transcending the boundaries of the hockey rink. Officiating taught me that success, both on and off the ice, hinged on my willingness to push myself and embrace challenges with resilience.

Guided by supportive mentors and supervisors, I honed my skills and grew as an individual. Now, I take pride in giving back to the sport that shaped me by supporting and guiding younger officials as they begin their own officiating journeys.

My officiating career began with a simple passion for hockey, and it has been a journey filled with experiences and relationships that have enriched my life.

About Kyle

Born in 1999, Kyle Wong is classified as one of the tenured officials on the Stripes Performance team. Having officiated over 13 years and counting, Kyle has had the privilege to partake in a plethora of invaluable experiences throughout his career — from participating in the yearly Richmond tournaments to working the CSSHL — where he was fortunate enough to officiate local BC boys Connor Bedard, Zach Benson, and many more.

To Kyle, officiating is about learning life skills that will stay with you forever. When the going gets tough, nothing motivates him more than powering through and getting the job done. He hopes to pass on a tenacious mentality not just to our newest additions, but to all the officials he has the honor of working with.
