Ringette Hall of Fame

Bruce Heaslip


Bruce Heaslip began his involvement with ringette in 1970 as an on-ice official in Hamilton where for many years he was a dedicated on-ice official and local Referee in Chief for the Hamilton Ringette Association. He became well known as a successful course conductor and master instructor – training both on-ice officials and course conductors across Ontario and throughout Canada. He was also an on-ice official at the first three Canadian ringette championships and attained the highest level of ringette officiating available at the time and he was a supervisor of officials at nationals for the three years following that.

One of Bruce’s notable achievements on behalf of ringette officials across Canada was the inception and development of the Officials’ Evaluation Program along with Bruce Kettles, Jim Benning and Doug MacQuarrie. Bruce contributed to the development of the officials’ evaluation form, performance indicators and key deliverables in the program – many of which are still used today.
