Level 1 Umpiring Course at Hockerill College, Sunday 1st September

21 Jul 2019

Dear Players, Parents and Supporters,

Are you interested in learning more about the rules of the game?

Have you ever watched or played in a game and thought you could have done a better job with the whistle?

We have booked England Hockey to deliver a Level 1 umpiring course 9am - 4pm on Sunday, 1st September. You must book via the EH Hockey Hub (see below) and you will have to register on their hockey portal if you haven't already done so (see link below):

The Club will reimburse you once you have umpired four games at any level - junior, adult or mixed.

Why should you do it?

If you are a parent, it's a great way for you to support your child and contribute to the club.

If you are a player, you will have an understanding of the game.

If you are thinking of going to university and going to fresher's trials, it's amazing how an umpiring qualification may be the difference between being selected and not selected!

If you are a coach, you need a Level 1 qualification if you aim to do the Sessional and ACP qualifications.

Please do consider taking up the whistle. As we grow we need more umpires.

Good luck!
