Free Rules Session – Friday 27th January

The Norfolk Hockey Umpiring Association are running a FREE session on Friday 27th January (7.30pm-9.00pm) at Taverham on the interpretation of the lifted and carried ball, the ball deliberately hit over the back line and obstruction.

NHUA are inviting all umpires and players to attend to gain a better understanding of the way these rules are being applied in Norfolk.  Please see details below.


We are running another of our Workshops at TRF (Beech Road, Taverham, NR8 6HP) starting at 7:30pm finishing around 9:00pm ish. We have booked the bar so you will be able to refresh yourselves.

Wrap up warm as the bulk of the session will be demonstrated outside on the pitch.

We have asked Phil Skinner to cover the lifted and carried ball; the ball deliberately hit over the back line and obstruction. And I hope we will have some time inside to take you up the “ladder of control”.

All are welcome, no matter what standard or umpiring experience you have.

We also invite the Club ULOs to advertise this session to all players and umpires in their clubs.
Everyone involved in Hockey should be interested and aware of how and what the current interpretations of the rules are.

I hope you all have a prosperous and happy New Year,

Alan Jones (NHUA President)
