Every match needs an umpire!

Umpiring is a great way to be involved in hockey. It gives you the opportunity to give something back to the sport you love, whilst also helping to widen participation in the sport. There are opportunities for everyone to umpire, whether you only want to umpire at your local club or progress to the international stage.

If you are interested in umpiring, we can provide you with the first important stepping stones to becoming a fully qualified umpire. We cannot have a competition without umpires, so why not give it a try? For more details about umpire qualification visit SHU website

The first thing you need to do is to learn the rules. You can buy a rule book from the SHU or you can download from the following link: The Rules of Hockey 2015

The new Level 1 Course

The new Level 1 Umpire Course consists of 2 sessions over 2 nights. Before you attend this, you need to complete an online written test, which can be found at Rules from England Hockey. Much more information is on the SHU website under “Umpires & Officials”.

After the course you go and practice until you are ready to be tested. You can practice umpiring at youth & senior training sessions, school games, District trials and at West District Women's Division 4. Coaching is available. Contact Jacqui McDove for more information on coaching, practice and assessment. Before sitting the practical test, read the guidance for candidates.
