Young Leaders & Young Umpires
Each year we run the England Hockey Board’s Leadership
Award over several days. We run this award in association
with the Dr Challoners School Sports Partnership and some
of the sessions are based at the school. The award consists
of four modules, Coaching, Leadership, Managing and the
Foundation Umpire Award. This award is open to members who
Young leaders and young umpires are encouraged to come
and help with the younger groups’ training sessions
on a Sunday morning to help develop the skills they have
learnt from doing the Leadership Award.
Young leaders are given the chance to run mini teams at
fixtures and at tournaments, help manage and coach teams,
umpire at training and at fixtures and tournaments and be
a role model to our very young players.
