The local officials’ association, MHBOA (Medicine Hat Basketball Officials’ Association has developed their new website. To become an official or to register your tournament with properly trained and carded officials please go to

With basketball season upon us again this year, the Medicine Hat Basketball Officials Association is looking for new members. The local membership covers games from Grassy Lake to the Saskatchewan border, and includes MHCBA, junior high, senior high and even has members officiating ACAC games featuring the College’s Rattlers as well as the occasional game in Lethbridge. New members will receive training and mentorship as they become a key part in helping young athletes play the sport they love.

More properly trained and certified officials will help the game grow and prosper. It is also an excellent way to make some extra spending money.

The online assigning software allows officials to receive and confirm their appointed games with ease.

The General Meeting and Exam will be held Sunday November 21 at 6:30 pm at Notre Dame Academy.

For more information about officiating, go to and send them an email.

The Medicine Hat Hockey Hound Junior B Cubs are searching for young energetic volunteers to be part of the team as game day Staff. There are tons of hockey fans in Medicine Hat that love to watch a game live but can’t get tickets to a Tigers game. Our intentions are not to bash the Tigers but to promote the young local talent that we have right here in our city with the Cubs. The Cubs strive every year to improve the image on and off the ice, both for the league and themselves. The Heritage Junior Hockey League consists of 15 teams and is recognized as the elite league in Alberta when it comes to Junior B hockey. The HJHL continues to improve it’s image also, focusing on removing the old title of Jungle B hockey that has been around for many years. The league and Cubs are dedicated to being a disciplined league and it has shown as the number of fights in games has declined over the last 3 years due to strict enforcement from Hockey Canada, Hockey Alberta and the HJHL.

Our goal is to not only improve the on ice product but to make it an exciting experience for all who come to a game.

What we are looking at in regards to game day staff is people with ideas to help make the game exciting before, during and after the game. This group of young individuals can brainstorm, then through a bunch of their ideas together and then go with it.

We are looking for a spectator host/announcer, music man, ice crew, cheerleaders behind the scene helpers or anything else you can think of.

If this is something that interests you please contact the Cubs by email at
