Are you interested in learning to umpire or need to refresh your umpire skills??

The Association is seeking interest from anyone who maybe keen to learn or once again blow the whistle. Umpires are required for both Junior and Senior teams for next year. Do you have an afternoon/evening to spare during the summer hockey season or maybe a Saturday afternoon in the winter? We are also seeking someone to fulfill the role of Senior Umpire Manager. This role requires you to co-ordinate, recruit, mentor and appoint umpires to senior Div 1 & 2 games. We have someone who does this very successfully for our junior umpires already and can help you get started if need be.  Please ring 3675353 or email the office if you may be interested.
