Do I need any specialised kit to support me being a Technical Official?

All of the basic equipment you need to be a Technical Official is a stopwatch, paper and a pen. However, as hockey is played in all weather conditions, appropriate clothing, waterproof clipboards and other tools for the job are optional for you. Technical kit for testing equipment is provided where required.

All Technical Officials operating in the National Programme are eligible to claim a free polo shirt from our clothing partner Adidas (except for postage and packing). Other clothing is also available. Please contact for the link to claim your free polo shirt.
