Umpires & Officials

Umpiring in Essex is overseen by the Essex Hockey Umpiring Association (EHUA). Their aim is to promote umpiring across the County and to support the development of all umpires.

The EHUA also maintains a pool of umpires which are appointed on a weekly basis to the necessary divisions.

Young Umpires, those under the age of 25, can get involved in the East Young Umpire Pathway, which is specifically designed to support young people progress along the umpiring pathway.

Since 2017, England Hockey have been working on a new vision of umpiring. Central to this plan is the creation of a unified, inclusive umpiring community in England, that is nationally led and locally supported.
