Young Umpires Award
October 6, 2003 - 01:00
There are plans to run the Young Umpires Award around the Oct half term. Dates are still to be confirmed for the training but the practical assessment will be on the 16th November. The course will be held at Old Bordenians Hockey Club, Sittingbourne and is aimed at junior hockey players aged 9 - 16 years old. The Award is based on Mini Hockey (the 7-a-side hockey game). It's about young people learning the Rules in a fun environment, developing their confidence and building an understanding of the role of the hockey umpire and then taking up the challenge and blowing the whistle in a Mini Hockey game. There are 3 levels to the Young Umpire Award - bronze, silver and gold. The course will be paid for you. If you are interested please contact #^mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org,Jon Rye#.
