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 - Men's East League Division 2 and above, and Women's East League Division 1

All umpires operating within the County must be an affiliated member to officiate a match. This affiliation provides umpires with insurance and access to the fantastic coaching and assessing team

For more information on umpiring in the county please contact a member of the EHUA Committee
