Our Club needs a few new umpires, and that could be you!!
We also need another EH-accredited Umpire Developer (courses also available online for £10 only) to add to the one we already have, Mike Dutton. Suggest that we need a club umpire who has had at least 3 years umpiring under his/her belt.
England Hockey currently offers plenty of online Umpiring Courses, including Level 1 Umpiring Courses (minimum age 14), a few Umpire Developer Courses and a few Introduction to Umpiring Courses.
For full details on registration for a course, please go to the relevant England Hockey page. You will need to create an England Hockey online account, with password – that’s the really easy bit!
For a full list of dates available, please link to the England Hockey page above. Times of the courses vary (morning, afternoon or evening) and they last only 90 minutes, after which you come away with a Certificate. Job done! Mike Dutton will then make it his business to manage your further development in club umpiring.
