South Young Umpiring Appointment Policy

England Hockey have specific recommendations regarding young umpires officiating senior hockey matches, as follows ...

"It cannot be emphasised enough that England Hockey recommends that U18 umpires,
other than those approved by the NYUAG and RYUAGs, do not umpire adult matches
unless supervised by appropriately qualified and checked coaches/mentors.
Welfare precautions should ensure the deployment of young umpires to games
appropriate to their stage of development."

Southern Counties Hockey Umpires' Association, and specifically the South RYUAG, support this policy fully.
Any appointments of young umpires to senior or junior matches will only be made
after careful consideration of the abilities, welfare and development needs of any young umpires concerned.

The Young Umpiring Information Page shows all the other information about the Regional Action Group and all the information and documents needed for young umpires in the area.
It also shows the information and documents needed for adults working with young umpires in the area.

This page includes information on the following ...
