As a large Club running 9 league teams, we are always seeking new umpires, especially from our stock of more “senior” players or those contemplating giving up playing hockey, for whatever reason.
There is an upcoming Level 1 Umpiring Course to be held at the University of Exeter Sport Park on Sunday 5th Nov 2017; this is an all-day course (incorporating classroom tuition and on-pitch coaching), 9.00am to 4.40pm, and the fee is currently £50. That fee is to paid when you register online for the course but the Club will refund that cost when you have umpired a minimum of 5 games for us.
It takes you to a page on the EH website that lists all the courses on offer nationwide; simply locate the appropriate course and click BOOK ONLINE NOW. You will need to set up an EH account, with password, before going further, and there will be an online Rules Test to go through (as I remember, this can be done at a later stage, but it needs to be done before attending the course).
Note that the deadline for registering is 25th Oct.
