2nd Dec (2017)St Georges Sixes --- Wednesday March 7th

A date for your diary.
This time it is the 40th anniversary of this schools' hockey festival. And it will be a bigger and better event than before --- needing more umpires.
I will be sending out umpire invites to all past attendees in the new year.
If you haven't attended before (or in recent years) but would like to be invited, please contact Ian Hay asap and you'll be added to the umpire invite.

3rd Nov (2017)Teddington HC

SHUA has been invited by Middlesex HUA to appoint umpires to Teddington 2nd X1's home games. The more vigilant amongst you will have noticed already that I have appointed to their game on 25th November.Their home games are played at Teddington School in Broom Road,Teddington. It is very easy to find and I'm sure that many of you have been there in the past when it was used by various Surrey clubs. These appointments will be made on a "match by match" basis and will not be allowed to affect the Surrey appointments which will always take precedence.

1st Apr (2017)Head (and other serious) injuries

Council would like to remind all umpires about the correct procedures with regard to head (and other serious) injuries.
In the event of a head (or another serious) injury, the game MUST be stopped immediately so that the player may receive appropriate treatment.
When and where possible and appropriate, the player should leave the pitch and only return to the game if an appropriately qualified medical practitioner allows.
If under the age of 18, the player with a head injury is not allowed to return to the game until he/she has been assessed by an appropriately qualified medical practitioner.
The link is England Hockey's policy on concussion.
From the Welfare Manager.

6th Nov (2013)New Match Check List documents

The Selection & Coaching Committee is very pleased to be launching 3 new publications today.
Firstly, we have a re-styled and re-worded Match Check List (formerly known as the Pre Match Check List) that is produced in 2 different printing formats. The words Pre Match have been deleted because the booklet is much more of a framework that covers the whole of the game i.e. pre-match, the game itself and importantly the post-match. Both versions print on A4 but fold to a different size. There is a handy version that can be taken to games and is less expensive to reprint in the future and a larger format for easier home reading and markup. The documents can be found on the Web Handbook and Downloads page.
Secondly, we have been working on providing a less thorough document that is specifically aimed at our Club Umpires in Surrey as well as those who are just setting out on their umpiring career. This document carries the mnemonic (WRISKEY) to provocatively identify areas of umpiring that may not always be considered. Clubs are encouraged to pass this around their umpires as we hope to encourage a greater consistency of umpiring from club to club. For experienced umpires this document is definitely worth a read at the start of each season as it can stimulate a few thoughts that are supplemented by the more structured Match Check List referred to above.
Please use these documents wisely and frequently and please do let the Selection Committee know if you have anything that should be added to the documents.
