News and Announcements
The Umpires’ Association will be holding an early season briefing on October 2, 7-9 pm at Uvic (room tba).
The briefing will be lead by Chris Wilson and will go over a variety of topics. Luckily thought, no new rules! Topics will include:
New positioning recommendations (recently distributed by FHBC – let Denise know if you didn’t get a copy)
Aerial balls and safety
FIH has turned their annual umpire’s briefing into a video. Please watch this video before the briefing – before you umpire if you can: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5gbPmcF0u8
All umpires are expected attend this briefing. Coaches and players are welcome too.
Please note, this session is for education, not rehashing events of past games. These types of discussion take up valuable time and don’t really serve the purpose we are trying to achieve.
Please RSVP to Denise email@example.com by September 30th.
