2nd FebRed Card and Disrepute Support

If you have to give a red card, MMO at a match or have seen something that brings the game into disrepute, as defined in the linked EH code of conduct, please can all members contact the Association secretary for advice.

The Association is here to support members through these potentially difficult situations and are required to countersign any disrepute offences brought by neutrally appointed umpires.

Disrepute in non-appointed games still fall under the auspices of the affiliated bodies (more often than not the clubs).

This is currently being worked on and I will provide further updates here as and when.

This means that emails for new appointments, umpiring, coaching and assessing to BT and Yahoo (including Sky) addresses may not be delivered or will be severely delayed.

1st Dec (2016)Rules of Outdoor Hockey

As you may be aware, the FIH have conducted a review of the Outdoor Rules of Hockey, with a new set of rules to be implemented at International Level from January 2017. As there are no MAJOR changes, England Hockey has decided to implement the changes at all levels effective 1st August 2017, ahead of the 2017/18 season. EMHUA hope to have copies of rule books available free of charge for members to pick up at the AGM in April 2017.

13th Sep (2016)Automatic feedback report on coaches and assessors

If you have received a watching from a coach or assessor or have been appointed to an event supervised by an Umpire Manager, you will have received a written report via the website.

The system now incorporates a feedback report on watchers so, if you have received a report, you now need to input feedback on your watcher.

The information received from the umpires is extremely important to the watchers so that they can identify areas for improvement and also to the Association so that we can be sure that the correct messages are being given and that the quality of Coaching/Assessing is at the highest possible level.

Feedback on your watcher will be seen by the watcher together with a small number of people on the Selection/Coaching Committee as appropriate so comments that you do make, will be treated confidentially.

Completion of feedback reports is compulsory. Whilst you will be able to notify expenses through the system, you will not be able to claim them if reports are outstanding. Reports are most valuable if they are given soon after the event so we would ask all of you to complete these within a short space of receiving your report, rather than waiting a few months and then having to complete them merely in order to claim your expenses
