The Irish Hockey Umpires Association has launched a new Umpiring Development Programme.
The aim of this programme is to increase the number of certified umpires at all levels of the game in the country. Clubs are being asked to encourage members to take the new course that will certify them in basic umpiring skills, knowledge and the rules of the game.
By increasing the skill set of umpires at club level, understanding and knowledge of the game will improve which, it is hoped, will increase both the hockey skills for players and overall enjoyment of the game for everyone involved.
