Club News – October 2018

Congratulations to our newest umpires, Stephen MacKenzie and Andrew Moore, who recently attained their Level 1 qualification.

Want to learn to umpire from scratch? At the beginning of September we started mentoring some players at the Friday Night Lights youth games. The mentors shadow the new umpires on the pitch and talks through the rules to them. If you would like to be involved in this please contact Jacqui McDove on 07939 178358.

District News

A new Introductory umpire qualification has been introduced. This involves a 3 hour course after which the candidates will be allowed to umpire in Men’s West District Division 3 and Women’s West District Division 4.

We will be running this course soon at UHC so watch out for dates!

Level 1 Course

The Level 1 Umpire Course consists of 2 sessions over 2 nights. As this course costs £50 to attend, anybody wishing to attend will be expected by UHC to attain a certain standard of umpiring beforehand.

Before you attend candidates need to complete an online written test, which can be found at

After the course candidates then need to sit a practical test. They can practice umpiring at youth & senior training sessions, school games, District trials and at West District Women's Division 4. Coaching is available.

Much more information is on the SHU website under “Participation / Umpires & Officials”.

The Rules

No matter what grade of umpire you are, you must know the rules. Every umpire should be refreshing their knowledge of the rules every so often by reading the rule book.

If you’re umpiring and something happens in a match that you’re not too sure about then speak to one of the higher qualified umpires in our club to discuss. The list is below. We are lucky to have FIH, A-badged and B-badged umpires always willing to give advice!

You can download the rules and guidance from the Scottish Hockey website:
