Umpire Availability Statistics 2017-2018 ...(with image - click here)

Attached are the final umpire availabilty statistics for the year. The Ulster Hockey Management Board have agreed that all clubs who achieved 80% or higher will be viewed as having complied with Article 6 of the Constitution. Clubs whose Umpire Availability percentage is below this will be fined in accordance with a sliding scale of fines that were agreed by the Board at the beginning of the season, which was also copied to clubs.

We would like to thank the many clubs who have met their responsibilities under this rule and have provided umpires to the panel through out the season. Without your support and encouragement, we could not be able to cover the range of matches that we do. However, the panel is still too small, so I would urge all clubs to continue to support and encourage their club members to join the panel. In Ulster we have a fine tradition of providing umpires who go on to be appointed to European and International matches, but we can only continue to do this with ...

FINAL CALL - Masters' Home Nations @ Lisnagarvey - 22nd, 23rd & 24th June (O35s, O40s & O45s

As previously advised the Masters' Home Nations Tournament will be taking place at Lisnagarvey from the 22nd - 24th June. There will be 6 matches on each of three days and the organisers will need 3 officials per match (of either sex) and are prepared to pay a match fee of £20 per match. An umpires shirt will also to be provided (remember to let Mervyn know your shirt size).

While there has been a good response to date, the organisers are still looking for at least 3 umpires to cover the weekend, particularly matches being played on the Sunday. So if you can help out please contact Mervyn Logan (mervynlogan@aol.com) as soon as possible. If you do volunteer, you will be expected to umpire twice and 'do the table' at least once.

As this is an inaugural event, it would be great to have a good strong umpire representation: something that "sets the bar" for other Home nations to follow in subsequent years.

Thank You!

Umpire Expense Claims (January - May 2018) ...(with image - click here)

It is that time of year, as the season draws to a close to submit your expense claim. With the season not yet complete, we have decided to run the claim period to the 27th May so that if you are appointed that you have the opportunity to claim for these matches before the deadline (31st May 2018).

This is a hard deadline, if you do not submit your claim on or before this date, regrettably we will not be in a position to pay your claim at a later date, as we need to clear down all claims over the Summer so that the system is ready again for the start of next season. So if you do want to claim, make sure that you submit your claim before the deadline. We will then submit all the claims to Ulster Hockey in early June and would hope that you will receive your payment before the end of June. Ulster Hockey are keen to reduce their administration and bank costs and want to make electronic payments to your bank account, so please ensure that your bank account details are up to date ...

National 4 Year Umpiring Plan (from Irish HUA) ...(with link - click here)

The Irish Hockey Umpires Association (IHUA) remains seriously concerned about the shortage of qualified umpires and the general acceptance of this ever deepening problem. IHUA has therefore launched its 4 Year Plan, in conjunction with the Provincial Umpire Associations/Working Groups, for umpiring at both national and provincial level and this framework document provides a number of strategies for addressing the current crisis in respect of the recruitment and retention of umpires at all ages.

We recognise the substantial umpiring problems that continue to exist particularly with our provincial umpiring colleagues week to week. It was therefore vital that any national umpiring strategy had the involvement and support of our provincial colleagues and we welcome their contribution to the final product.

The strategic objectives outlined in our 4 Year Plan basically provide us with an essential foundation for moving forward with hope. However, IHUA and the Umpire Associations ...
