Umpiring is a great way to be involved in hockey. It gives you the opportunity to give something back to the sport you love, whilst also helping to widen participation in the sport. There are opportunities for everyone to umpire, whether you only want to umpire at your local club or progress to the International stage. Whatever your aspirations, you will receive support from England Hockey and the large number of fantastic volunteers involved in umpiring.
