P6 and P7 festivals we will see 10 local schools taking part in our hockey festival being held at Uddingston Cricket & Sports Club and run as part of Uddingston Hockey Clubs

In-school community hockey programme.

In total, we have 781 primary pupils attending over the 2 weeks, who have received hockey via in-school taster sessions over the last year.

Most schools primary 6 and 7 classes will be transported to and from Uddingston Hockey Club by our transport partner McDades Coaches, Uddingston who have also provided transport during the In-school Hockey Programme to allow schools to have their taster sessions on the hockey pitch at the club instead of the schools own facilities.

The festivals themselves will see each class being split into teams and play as many fun games over a four hour period to not only allow the children to enjoy games of hockey but also to let the children enjoy the clubs world class hockey facility.

The Uddingston Grammar Hockey Academy students from Uddingston Grammar School will be helping out during the festivals, by Umpiring and Coaching to assist them in gaining their Certificates.

All family members are very welcome to come along and watch with our coffee kiosk and clubhouse being open throughout.

The in-school taster sessions and inter-school festival then allow all pupils to progress onto our club sessions which run:

Youths sessions Tuesday and Wednesday night on our pitch (G71 7HJ)

Ages 4-9yr olds 6pm to 7pm and

Ages 10-14yr olds 7pm to 8pm

£4 each session, with no need to join the club, just to come along as all equipment provided.

We would also particularly like to thanks our community programme partners McDades Coaches and Riva Bothwell and Rosso Bothwell who without their support we just wouldn’t be able to give so many pupils the chance to try and play hockey.

New Level 1 umpires

Congratulations to four new Level 1 umpires: Iain Scott, Martin McIntosh, Lewis Angus & Chris Boyle.

They are part of the group of 15 players who recently sat their Level 1 theory and have progressed to their test match.

As the remainder of the group progress to their test match plans are already being drawn up for 20 more players to come on board to work towards their Level 1.

Umpire Test Results are In......

In line with the club's ambition to have all players who play performance hockey for our Gents and Ladies 1s or 2s at least Level 1 Umpire badged, we are delighted to congratulate the 15 most recent players who have now completed their L1 umpire theory test and now just need to work towards their test match.

These include Josie O’Brien, Sophie Ross, Anna McWilliams, Kirsty Wratten, Rachel Thomson, Alicia Muir, Andrew Lochrin, Hamish Robson, Chris Boyle, Martin McIntosh, Bein Wilson, Jamie Wilson, Graeme Haxton, Lewis Angus & Iain Scott.

Once these 15 players are fully badged this will then see us with a total of 57 badged members across the full club.

Plans are also in place to start the process to get our next crop of 20 volunteers Level one badged during 2020 with all very welcome to join in, plus we are now looking to carry out the Youth Umpire Award with our youth performance squads to start the umpire development process as early as possible #wegrowumpires.

Special thanks should go to West District Umpires Association and their testers for all their support plus our own hard-working Umpire Development team Jacqui McDove, Fraser Bell, Martin Clark, Andy Meikle and Tom White. Well done to all those involved.

If you are are a player or a parent and interested in Umpiring please speak to Jacqui or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. as all welcome no matter your experience.
