Knowledge Gained At Intro To Umpiring Clinic

Thank you to everyone that attended our Intro To Umpiring clinic on Monday night.

The session was presented by Reece Young, an umpire with many years experience.

Reece took participants through the basics of umpiring, including how to

position yourself to best see the play, how to manage the game and players, and how to address player behaviour.

The night also saw the launch of our Junior Umpire Academy. An expression of interest was sort from players to become an umpire and also for those experienced umpires to become mentors. If you are interested in becoming an umpire or a mentor please complete the relevant form below:

The presentation from the night is also available for you to view. Click here to download it.

You can also become a Community Umpire by completing the free course on HockeyEd.

  • Visit HockeyEd and log into your account. If you do not have an account you can sign up for one.
  • Once loged in you can register for the free Community Umpire Accreditation by clicking ‘Umpire’, then ‘Community Umpire’. Here you can view the learning material.
  • Once you have read the learning material there is a short quiz with interactive videos and questions for you to answer. It should take between 30 minutes to an hour to complete.
  • Download the Practical Competency Checklist and organise with your local HockeyEd Coordinator to have your umpiring practically evaluated during a match of at least 45 minutes.
  • Finally let our Umpiring Coordinator, Pete Kenny know that you are willing and available to help with umpiring of games.
