Ok ref's lets face it, you're in the middle of the roughest game on earth! Not only are the players huge but the smallest thing on the ice, the puck, can do some major damage. So take some precautions with the Referee Girdle by CCM. Offering lightweight and breathable protection with half inch perforated foam throughout, this girdle will allow you to skate freely while still maintaining some peace of mind. The entire girdle padding is removable for washing purposes. There is also a removable cup if needed. So stay safe on the ice ref's because we're not gunning for you but you may get caught in the middle at some point.
