13th JunA new vision for umpiring - England Hockey update

Since 2017, England Hockey, the National Programme Umpiring Association (NPUA) and the Regional Hockey Umpiring Associations have been working on a new vision for umpiring to ensure that support, development and opportunities available to umpires at all levels is right for the game in the 2020s and beyond.

Central to plans is the creation of a unified, inclusive umpiring community in England, that is nationally led but locally delivered. In short, this is to provide umpires at every level of our game with the resources, tools and support to enable them to umpire at their desired level.

3rd JunNew EH online Umpire Education courses

Online Education for Umpires - England Hockey statement

Due to the extended period of social distancing and the preparations that clubs are undertaking for the return of hockey at some point in the future, we have taken the decision to offer a series of 1 hour seminars for FREE to help umpires new and experienced, young and old to interact with each other and share some learning about different aspects of the game.

These are being advertised through the Hockey Hub, (link below)

We have also taken the decision to modify the current courses so they can be run as paid-for, theory only sessions online:

Club Umpire Developer
Introduction to Umpiring
Umpiring the Small Sided Game (In2 and Mini-Hockey)
Level 1

There will be no physical resources given out on these courses and no practical delivery either. These are purely theory based accreditations in this period but participants will still receive their accreditation (for example, the Level 1 will accredit people with the Level 1 Unassessed if they complete the whole session and successful completion of the Online Rules of Hockey test).

Due to the lack of physical resources and practical, we have reflected the reduction in costs for running courses into the pricing so the pricing for these online sessions are cheaper (L1 from £55 to £30).
If you have any further questions about this, please contact David Elworthy at England Hockey.

The YHUA AGM was scheduled for the end of April but in the light of the current Coronavirus situation this is clearly not appropriate and we have postponed until later in the year. We have provisionally set the new date as Thursday 3rd September in Wakefield and plan to combine it with the usual pre-season social event, pie and peas supper etc. We will keep this under review and share information with you as soon as we can. In the meantime, please keep safe and well, catch up with some You tube hockey action and keep in touch with your hockey colleagues.

NORTH HOCKEY ASSOCIATION: Cock O’ the North Competition

You can now buy FIH Pro League tickets before they go on general sale.
You also have the chance to sit with your group for any of the eight sessions if you wish to do so. With our Selector Tool, it’s really easy for you to sit with your group, without one person having to do all the organising. All you have to do is:
1. Agree which matches you'll attend and your ticket category for each
2. Share the 'Hockey Family Link' below with your group so everyone can buy their tickets
3. Use the Hockey Family Selector when you check out to pick which group you want to sit with
England Hockey will then allocate your seats together when the Hockey Family Priority Window closes in January.
With the 2020 Olympics only a month after the conclusion of the league, you don't want to miss the elite of international hockey in their final battle before Tokyo.

14th Dec (2018)Urinating at the side of a hockey pitch.

We are seeing an increasing number of complaints regarding urinating at the side of the pitch. As we are sure you will all agree, this behaviour is not only unpleasant but also a contravention of the EH ‘Respect – Code of Ethics and Behaviour’ – Disrepute Offence, not to mention in some cases a criminal offence. We expect all members to refrain from such behaviour. However, in the event of such incidences, in keeping with the revised Disrepute Complaint Regulations, we kindly ask that these be referred to EH as a Disrepute Complaint in the first instance. It is likely that offenders will face a suspension.
If you have any queries on this, Please contact England Hockey
