Working with the IHUA and Provincial Associations, the Programmes will run in 2019/2020. Hockey Ireland aim to see influential changes right from grassroots hockey through to European level. While the Programmes are aimed at growing umpiring at all levels, the Programme is funded by the Sport Ireland Women in Sport Programme and the focus for the first year will be on female umpiring.

Elite Umpiring Programme

Across the whole of Ireland, we need to engage 24 female umpires. Within the duration of our funding we are aiming to have one female working with the EHF on the Umpire Development Programme. This Programme will ...

Umpire Radios (from Irish HUA)

We are aware of a few problems that have developed at the end of last season and the start of the current season with some of the UmpireTalk radios, mainly due to natural wear and tear. Of course there are a number that continue to work with no problems.

This notice is just to say that we are working on solution in conjunction with the Provinces as everyone recognises the widespread importance of radio usage for all matches. It is important that we try and get a radio that suits our wider needs as well as ensuring the cost is affordable. For this reason we will be looking to test some options in the next couple of weeks.

If we can agree on a radio then realistically we are probably looking at just after Christmas for their introduction.
