The District “B” Officials Association (DBOA) has been servicing the core of Ottawa for many years. At one point in time, the DBOA was in fact three separate districts, District 6, District 7, and District 8. When the new BMHL formed, the three Districts decided to merge allowing officials a larger area to cover and grow their skills.
Being one of the largest Districts within Hockey Eastern Ontario, the DBOA continues to push our officials to becoming the best they can be. With close to 130 officials in our Association, and 60 more every year trying out to become a new official, we always look to improve on our programs in place.

DBOA continues to push our officials to be the best we can be. We look forward to seeing what the future has for our officials!
