As you all know umpires are an essential part of hockey - we can't play without them!
If you're interested in becoming an umpire - be it to assist our ULO, to increase your knowledge of the game or just because you think you'd look good in yellow , get yourself along to one of the local L1 Umpire courses at Southend HC, Brentwood HC or Old Loughts HC.
The details of the courses can be found here:
Initial course payment will be reimbursed by the club once you're an assessed L1 umpire.
Remember you don't need to be a player to be an umpire - so if you have anyone who may be interested in the course please let them know.
