South East Area guidance November 2021 - Assessment of Level 1 qualified umpires

How do you become an umpire?

It is advised the Umpires go through their L1 Tutorial by registering through England Hockey. You can register on https://www.englandhockey.co.uk and sub menus Home>Deliver>Officiate>Umpire.
Then follow the stages 1 – 3 so that an assessment game can be organised.

Stage 1: L1 Tutorial
Sage 2: Hockey Rules test
Stage 3: EH award L1 Unassessed ID No
Stage 4: Assessment for L1 Assessed Umpire status

Two initial courses on the EH website which may help prospective umpires decide which course to take are:
Introduction to Umpiring
• • It is aimed at those with little or no umpiring knowledge and would be suitable for parent helpers, teachers or young leaders
• • Great way to learn the basics of umpiring to support you umpiring 11-a-side hockey outside of formal leagues where accreditation levels exist
Level 1 Umpiring Course
• • It is aimed at those looking to umpire lower level 11 a-side games for their clubs, schools or universities and is the second step on the Umpire Development Pathway
• • Delivers theoretical aspects of umpiring to support individuals umpiring the 11-a-side game on a full-sized pitch
-------------------------------------------------
Level 1 Assessments – what happens after your level 1 course?

Once the course work is completed the umpire will be given their EH ID number. They will also have to register on GMS. The next stage will be a full assessment from an assessor at a game to be agreed.

In order to arrange an assessment, please contact your Area reps (dev.umpires@southeast.hockey / ehrep.umpires@southeast.hockey) to arrange an assessment. To view South East Area guidance on the KHUA website, go to:
Information> Information&Downloads>England Hockey:Fit for the Future>South East Area Newsletter – October 2021, and
Information> Information&Downloads>England Hockey:Fit for the Future>SE Hockey - L1 unassessed - assessment guidance September 2021.

Once this has been done and the umpire passes the assessment, they become an ‘Assessed L1 umpire’ and will be able to take neutral appointments in the SE Area if they wish.

Should you wish to progress further, please review the Umpire Development Pathway. This can be found on the KHUA website under Information> Information&Downloads>England Hockey:Fit for the Future>England Hockey - Umpiring Pathway Nov 2021. HOWEVER, this does not reflect the current position as the Regional HUA and County HUA umpire 'blocks' are combined into the Area Officiating Committee. The Club Umpire levels are still appropriate.

If you are in doubt, please contact the South East Area Team as they will support umpire development going forward.

Launch of the England Hockey Officiating club (EHO) – registration/log in issues

Many of you appear to have had issues attempting to access the new EH systems.

Due to the volume of enrolments (over 8,000 e-mails), for officials and players on the new EH systems, the system has had a huge backlog to process. This has caused an issue with the e-mail providers in sending these verification codes in a timely manner.

The challenge over the verification codes has been that they expire and due to the backlog, they haven't come through on time.

The Systems team have been working hard to resolve this issue and should be resolved shortly. Please try to stagger your registration/log ins over the next few days.

Thanks for your patience.

Many of you appear to have had issues attempting to access the new EH systems.

Due to the volume of enrolments (over 8,000 e-mails), for officials and players on the new EH systems, the system has had a huge backlog to process. This has caused an issue with the e-mail providers in sending these verification codes in a timely manner.

The challenge over the verification codes has been that they expire and due to the backlog, they haven't come through on time.

The Systems team have been working hard to resolve this issue and should be resolved shortly. Please try to stagger your registration/log ins over the next few days.

Thanks for your patience.

Umpiring pre-season friendlies

You should be aware that KHUA will not be appointing through our website. All appointments will be done via the South East Area but published on the new EH GMS (Games Management System). You will need to register with the EHO (from 16th August), if you intend to take umpire appointments in the in your nominated primary Area.
As you may have noticed from the latest EH corrected EHO Member benefits matrix, Gold membership is the only level that will allow you to take umpire appointments.
The new South East Area has been asked about umpires for pre-season friendlies in September and are referring queries and requests from clubs to the relevant umpire lead in the Oaks, Martlets and Invicta divisions.
If you are interested in umpiring pre-season friendlies in the South East Area please update your availability on the KHUA website. Although it will not be used for making appointments, the system is still up and running to accept availability information and a few members have already added their availability.
The relevant umpire lead will contact clubs with a possible appointment but members will need to sort out expenses with the club, if any, as there is no longer any mechanism for paying expenses through our website and members will need to liaise directly with the home club.

New Red Card & MMO form

There is a new Red Card & MMO form, effective immediately (1st August 2021).

To download the form, go to the KHUA website menu - Information> Information&Downloads>Disciplinary>(Red Card & MMO form - 1st August 2021).

New Red Card (RC) and MMO regulations and Disrepute Offence Regulations are coming into effect from today, Sunday 1st August.

At the same time, a new red card report form comes into operation which will hopefully simplify the process of reporting for all umpires. Essentially, you complete the form with full details of the red card incident, and beyond confirming if it is a 2 x yellows = red or a straight red, categorisation is then a matter for the DAs.

All new regulations and associated forms are available on the discipline and disrepute pages of the EH website (see link below).

The guidance regarding completion of the RC & MMO report form will be updated and training/ guidance will be developed by EH to be in place for the start of the new season. This will be cascaded as soon as I receive it.

England Hockey Officiating Club (EHO)

I have received further information on the new club to which umpires, coaches, assessors and match officials at all levels are encouraged to join.
----------------------------------------------
We hope that you have been staying safe and well during this most recent return to hockey and enjoying the EH competitions or summer leagues that have been played on most pitches across the country.

As you may be aware, England Hockey were asked by the membership of EH back in 2019 to implement the proposed “Structure Fit for the Future”, where the game is moving from the existing governance structure to 8 New Areas across the country

As you may be aware, England Hockey were asked by the membership of EH back in 2019 to implement the proposed “Structure Fit for the Future”, where the game is moving from the existing governance structure to 8 New Areas across the country.

Following the release of the “Vision for Umpiring”, which was released back in June 2020, we are delighted to announce the launch of a Unified Club for all Umpires, Umpire Support and Technical Officials across the country, called England Hockey Officiating (EHO).

The EHO is a unified club, servicing the country but with local delivery through the new 8 Administrative Area Companies across the country. This approach brings Officiating the opportunity for the following
• To deliver a standardised approach to the recruitment, development and retention of all Officials across the game
• To develop high quality, easy to access, development resources for Officiating at all levels
• To create a transparent, easily navigable career pathway for officials, which is structured to enable all to perform to their full potential
• To use technology effectively to streamline processes, free up volunteer time and benefit from economies of scale.

To enhance the appeal to all levels of the game and to encourage Officials from all levels to come on board as an EHO Member, the below Subscription Tiers will be available

What happens next?

We will be writing to you in the upcoming weeks about when the membership subscription will become live, inviting you to become a member, presenting the calendar of support / educational events delivered centrally and also being contacted by your local EHO Area Officiating Committee.

In the meantime, if you have any questions about the EHO, please click on the link below to see our fact sheet and FAQ, or e-mail the Officiating Team –officiating@englandhockey.co.uk
