UMPIRING

Are you interested in taking the first step on the umpiring pathway; a Hockey Young Ambassador interested in umpiring; a teacher or TA interested in bringing hockey to your school; or a parent helper with your local hockey club?

The Introduction to Umpiring or Level 1 Umpire Award would be the ideal starting point for you. It is great for anyone new to umpiring and for those who want to gain additional knowledge on their umpiring journey.

Courses are now being delivered online in partnership with the Welsh Hockey Umpires Association. Please visit our events page to see our upcoming courses, or complete the Expression of Interest form.
