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.

KalaHockey Moves Forward With Field Lighting Project

Kalamunda Districts Hockey Club is moving forward with plans to increase the field lighting at their club rooms at Hartfield Park.

Currently we only have sufficient lighting to cover the training area, which amounts to only two teams being able to train under lights at the same time.

KalaHockey has established a partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF) to raise the funds for this project.

The expansion of our lighting will enable us to increase training participation, especially during the winter months when it gets darker earlier. It also gives us the opportunity to explore mid week competitions during the summer.

Anyone that would like to donate towards our lighting project can do so by clicking here.

The ASF was founded by the Federal Government in 1986 and provides a way for sporting clubs to seek funding that allow donors to make tax deductible donations for values more than $2. You can read more about how it works by clicking here.
