Sidmouth & Ottery Hockey Club welcomes any new umpires, young, not so young and mature/senior! With an EH-accredited Club Umpire Developer and several very experienced umpires, we are in a good position to offer the necessary support to all developing umpires through mentoring, coaching or guidance. While most will wish to remain as “club umpires”, the options on progression to take on neutral (appointed) games or entering one of the Devon HUA or Area Umpires’ Pool will be fully explained, with informed guidance offered on the path forward.
Online Rules Familiarisation (informal test)
