Another 'Century' Achieved

For the second season running, we are delighted to announce that IHUA has reached a cumulative total of over 100 umpire assessments and coachings in national competitions and Inter-pros. There are still some remaining umpires to the watched and we hope to complete these in the next few weeks.

Robert Johnston has done a magnificent job with all these 'watching' appointments and he sends out a big thank you to all those appointed for their continued support and assistance to the personal development of all those umpires.

As ever its very important that all watching reports are completed on the Portal within 2-3 days of the match so the umpire can put your feedback into practice before their next match.

Assessing and coaching at Provincial Level is extremely important. If anyone is interested in becoming an umpire assessor or umpire coach please contact Robert Johnston by email - robertjohnston42@aol.com and he can register your name of any upcoming courses.

Card Reports (Irish Competitions only)

The HI Discipline Committee has asked us to remind all umpires who are involved in cup games that have NO table, that all yellow and red card reports must be forwarded WITHIN 48 HOURS of the match.

To ensure that the proper disciplinary procedures are followed (suspensions etc.) it is extremely important that your card reports are received without delay, particularly as we are drawing near semi-finals and finals of the cup competitions!

The required report forms can be found under 'Information & Downloads'.

Your compliance is much appreciated.

Player Concussion

Concussion in sport is a serious matter. For this reason, two new documents have been uploaded onto this website for the 'awareness' of ALL umpires (click 'information and downloads button).

It is important to emphasise that the PRIME responsibility lies with the player and their team - NOT the umpire.

However, it is essential that all umpires recognise the symptoms and if you have concerns about any player, stop the match and recommend that the team (through their manager or captain) takes the appropriate action in accordance with the Hockey Ireland guidelines.

Remember: Concussion does not always involve losing consciousness therefore you must take any of these symptoms very seriously!!
