EHUmpire Membership Launch
We are delighted to launch a subscription based offer for umpires at all levels of the game. With the commencement of online educational forums and workshops throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve decided to open our libraries of specialist individuals’ advice and guidance to anyone within the “umpiring family” through an exclusive membership offer.
There will be 2 levels of membership (including a free membership level) where specialist, insightful and supportive educational material and comment boards will be made available for individuals to help undertake their own development for their umpiring.
The EHUmpiring membership is available now! A brief overview of the details of what benefits members can experience, please see below and click on the button to become a part of England Hockey Umpire Membership.
We are continuing to deliver our full suite of courses during this time (virtually of course) and would like to pay thanks to all those who have attended and to our Tutor Workforce who have allowed us to continue delivering during these challenging times. You can still attend all the courses below plus some monthly members events:
- Level 1 Course
- Introduction to Umpiring Course
- Umpire Developer Course
- Umpiring the Small Sided Games
- January’s members event – Positioning
- February’s members event – Obstruction

As a committee we first hope you are all keeping well and continue to through this difficult period.
Over the last week we had been discussing whether we could resume hockey on Wednesday 6th January as a Tier 3 club and there were valid arguments on both sides. Sadly, this decision has been made for us after the announcement of another national lock down last night.
The 2020/21 season has been up and down and I am sure we are all glad that we have been able to have some time on the pitch together.
Hopefully with the role out of vaccines the situation will have improved over the coming months.
We hope you and your families stay safe and well, best wishes.
Over the past few months, we have been looking at a new playing kit, that we are going to introduce next season (not yet available).
To go with that, and for purchase now, we are also offering some branded training gear – hoodies, tracksuit tops & bottoms, hats, etc.
Our online store is now live (link below), and some of this gear might make excellent Christmas presents for yourself, or for someone who plays hockey for the club.
Please note – to guarantee delivery before Christmas, you need to get your order in BEFORE next weekend (12th December).
