21st JunYoung Umpires Event at DC Festival Sunday July 21st - Haslemere

Location: Haslemere Hockey Club

Event Times: tbc, but three sessions from approximately (based on 2018 times):
1) 9:30 am until 12 noon
2) 12 noon until 3pm
3) 3pm until 5pm
There will be separate events for u13, u14 and u15 boys and girls.

Please indicate which sessions you could make, and which would be your first and second choices.

HHUA is looking forward to supporting and developing young umpires at this event. For the young umpire this means the opportunity to practice umpiring a number of small sided games throughout the day, with the help and advice of umpire coaches who will be pitch side.

Young umpires (under 23) from Hampshire Hockey Association area are welcome. If you are a young umpire, or mentor or coach a young umpire, who would like to take advantage of this opportunity, then please get in touch with Rowena Shepherd on cyuag.secretary@HHUA.co.uk (by clicking 'more' below) and leave your contact details.

NB: The standard of hockey for this event will be fairly high, as all the players will be at or close to County standard. It is therefore probably not suitable for complete beginners, but for those who have already umpired a few games, and/or have done (or are about to do) the Level 1 or Introduction to Umpiring courses.

Any senior umpires willing to assist with either umpiring or coaching young umpires, please also contact Rowena.

19th JunHHUA Shirt Policy 2019/20

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The Management Committee has reviewed the situation with regard to shirt supply as there are a limited number of possible suppliers. Adidas currently supply a new range of blue and orange shirts, with a possible white shirt in the offing, to the NPUA. At the moment, there is no intention for South to change their colours, so HHUA will remain with the current options while the higher-level decisions bottom out.

HHUA will continue with Tempest for new members/replacement Orange and Green HHUA LOGO'd shirts for at least the next 12 months, available through the HHUA Website. The White version remains available though CMP from the website

Club Umpires may purchase the same shirts from Tempest, with the same logo, but CLUB Umpire underneath, for use within the County to increase the corporate look of all umpires.

Members are to be reminded that HHUA Policy is that they will wear a current County Badged Shirt for all Appointments in the county or region (including those of Higher Bodies making themselves available for County/Regional appointments). Notwithstanding this regulation, for the 2019/20 season ONLY, for those who do not currently have a white HHUA shirt, members may wear a white polo shirt (with non-controversial logo (ask Sec/Mike Robson for guidance if you are not sure whether your logo is permitted)) for the rare occasions when green/orange will not suffice.

If you need guidance on any of this information please contact Mike Robson before next season.

23rd MayManaging Club Email Addresses

The web system has been updated to allow club webmasters to manage the use of club email addresses for registered club contacts and administrators.
Where a contact has used a club email address as their log-in address (despite the instructions that this should not be done), the club webmaster can now change the log-in address for that contact to be their personal email address.
Where a club contact has registered a club email address to be used for all email communications regarding club matters, the club webmaster can remove the registration.
Both options allow club webmasters to fully update the system when positions within the club change, without the need to force other club members to log in (who may have left the club).
The options are all in the "Update Club Members (Contact and Administrators)" button in the "Recorded Club Members" section of the club administration area.
The options are only available to the designated club webmaster.
