Together with England Hockey, we are starting a pilot to get more senior and junior players, parents and enthusiasts through the Level 1 Umpiring Course.

Delivered by England Hockey tutors and London Wayfarers Umpiring Officer Dion Oliver, courses will run this season on a monthly basis. To complete the qualification will take just 5 hours.

After completing the 3-stage course, you will:

  • Be able to support your fellow teams across the club in providing support for match days (parents are encouraged to support)
  • Be able to shout about the certificate and volunteering experience on your CV.
  • Have a greater knowledge and understanding of the rules and the game in general.
    Be given your very own set of cards and whistle!

To book or find out more please email [email protected]

STEP 1: Online rules test
