8th JulEngland 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

3rd JulImportant update – London and South East Area AGMs - 8th and 26th July 2021

We have received further information regarding attendance at the South East AGM.
-----------------------------------------------------
Information
The clubs are the members of the Area
The officials (Umpires/Coaches/Assessors/Technical Officials) are members of EHO (England Hockey Officiating)

There is some confusion between the “Inaugural Area AGM” and the EHO AGM.
The inaugural meeting is for the clubs who are the members of the area.
An AGM of the EHO will be held prior to next year’s Area AGM for clubs so that all members of the EHO can have a say about matters relating to the area and the running of the EHO in the South East.
The EHO is the members club and that is where the voice of the members will be heard.

The SE Area Inaugural AGM will be by Teams/Zoom/Webinar
The attendees will be the clubs who will have a vote and invitations will be issued to Area Directors and Chairs of Committee for these appointments to be ratified. No other people are required to attend
The AGM of the EHO will be held between April and July next year at which all members of EHO will receive an invite.
-----------------------------------------------------
Although we have not received similar confirmation from the London Area, it is highly likely that all Areas will operate in the same manner.
-----------------------------------------------------
What does this mean for me?
All Clubs will receive an invitation to the appropriate Area AGM, and you may be required to attend the Area AGM as your club’s representative.
However, as a member of EHO, you will not receive an individual invitation to attend the London or South East AGM.

Should you have any further questions, please contact your KHUA Area reps:
London: Mark Anderson, Peter Mackintosh and Stephen Mason
South East: Simon Begg, Jackie Gibbs and Annette Golding

13th MayChairman's Interim Update - EH FfF and London/South East Area Activity and Potential Impacts

By way of an interim update to members, work continues with the development of implementation arrangements to deliver the London and South East Areas and associated capabilities under the EH FfF Initiative. At the time of writing, the new management arrangements for Leagues and Officials are starting to emerge and it looks likely that the new areas will take on umpire appointing and resource management responsibilities from September. It is expected that the areas will also take on responsibility for all umpires once they have adequate resource in place but that is unlikely to be the case this year. Therefore, the KHUA Management Team has agreed that the Association will no longer appoint umpires from the start of the 2021-22 Season. However, KHUA will remain in existence to provide support to Level 1 Club Umpires and Candidate Umpires until such time as the areas have the capacity to pick up this responsibility.

Members may wish to be aware that because it is important that Umpire Liability Insurance is in place to safeguard them from any third party liability claim, KHUA is keeping the long standing members’ Umpire Liability Insurance in place and this will be effective provided the individual is a member of the Association and that KHUA continues to exist as a properly formulated entity. In this context, we plan to carry forward last season’s paid membership subscription to the end of the new season which will best serve members’ interests. There is no restriction on an umpire remaining a member of KHUA having joined one of the new area bodies.

Looking forward, it is likely that there may be no hockey-related role for KHUA after the 2021/22 Season concludes in which case we will move to dissolve the Association; however, this is a decision for the Membership to take, probably at a Special General Meeting, as is the consequential issue as to what should be done with any remaining Association funds. Please note that the Association’s Constitution makes specific provision for such an occurrence.

I will continue to update the Membership when either appropriate or necessary. Meanwhile, stay safe,

By way of an interim update to members, work continues with the development of implementation arrangements to deliver the London and South East Areas and associated capabilities under the EH FfF Initiative. At the time of writing, the new management arrangements for Leagues and Officials are starting to emerge and it looks likely that the new areas will take on umpire appointing and resource management responsibilities from September. It is expected that the areas will also take on responsibility for all umpires once they have adequate resource in place but that is unlikely to be the case this year. Therefore, the KHUA Management Team has agreed that the Association will no longer appoint umpires from the start of the 2021-22 Season. However, KHUA will remain in existence to provide support to Level 1 Club Umpires and Candidate Umpires until such time as the areas have the capacity to pick up this responsibility.

Members may wish to be aware that because it is important that Umpire Liability Insurance is in place to safeguard them from any third party liability claim, KHUA is keeping the long standing members’ Umpire Liability Insurance in place and this will be effective provided the individual is a member of the Association and that KHUA continues to exist as a properly formulated entity.

31st MarEH FfF Implementation - Future Area Organisation Information

The FfR Implementation Work continues to move forward and we will shortly be posting News Notices on this activity here on our Website or promulgating information via Block E-Mail - there will be a series of communications in the next few days.

Under FfF, County HUAs will no longer have a formal role because Umpires, as part of the Officiating Group, will be managed in the future by one of the 8 new Areas or by, or in conjunction with, NPUA if you umpire in the National League. Every umpire will be entitled to choose which Area is their primary management organisation and for KHUA Members these are likely to be either the London Area (broadly inside the M25) or the South East Area. It is expected that NPUA Umpires will also be part of an Area. This means that individual members will need to select or register with the relevant area that they are most likely to umpire in/take appointments from/is most geographically relevant. We will be promulgating information relating to both the London Area and South East Area so members will need to select the correct/relevant materials; however, for the majority of KHUA Umpires it is likely to be the South East Area that will be of most interest.
