Level One Umpires Course – October 2011

Further to the Notts Clubs Open Meeting held on 13th July 2011, the Nottinghamshire Hockey Association is organising a Level One Umpires Course during October 2011.

The course has been organised to encourage all Nottinghamshire Hockey Clubs to educate more members as umpires; as this was identified as a focus-area within the meeting. In recognition of the importance of educating more umpires within the county, the NHA has applied a large amount of funding to this course, resulting in candidate fees that are far lower than the national average of £40-£50 per individual. The NHA is also keen to support the umpiring needs of the Notts Women’s Hockey League, so please encourage your female members to apply!

Details of the course are attached and summarised below:
