NWHUA Forum Monday 29th January 2018
All umpires are invites and you should have received an email about this informal and informative gathering for local umpires to meet with EH, NWHUA and discuss some of the current 'grey' areas or interpretations! Nick's already submitted a number of queries raised from our umpires so should be a good night and its at THC so no need to travel ! Starts at 7.30pm
Test your hockey rules knowledge !
Every week our umpires are blessed with the sharing of detailed rules knowledge from many players, coaches and spectators - both from Timps and the Oppo ! Whilst we may be Albert whose been an FIH Umpire and umpired at the highest level - we also appear to have lots of budding umpires !
So why not test your umpiring knowledge of the game and rules on the EH on line resource hub - sign up for the Hockey Hub (its free) and then take some of the Umpiring / Rules challenges and see how you do. These aren't just for umpires but key for player to spend a bit of time mastering some of the finer point of the rules too - see how well you do !
We're also planning our next wave of #GrowOurOwn Umpires and will be aiming to get a course on at the club or locally and there's lost of support from our Umpires Developers Nick, Malcolm and Fozzy. The more umpires we have the less the player / umpires will be called on.
Look out for details you don't need to be a player, parents, supporters and young leaders are welcome to get involved too.
