www.englandhockey.co.uk - 9th March 2015
England Hockey and the European Hockey Federation are delighted to announce that the EuroHockey Championships 2015 will be broadcasted live across key European territories. The action will be played out over 10 days in front of thousands of fans on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London, England from 21-30 August.
Following the recent success of the Rabobank World Cup in the Netherlands last summer the EuroHockey Championships 2015 is set to build on the ever-increasing popularity of hockey across the continent. Ahead of the tournament in August, free-to-air deals have already been confirmed in the UK [BBC], Germany [Sport 1] and Holland [NOS] and on Satellite TV in Belgium [Telenet], and with discussions taking place in Poland, Russia, Spain, Ireland, Italy, India and France, the EuroHockey Championships is likely to reach countries which have never shown the event before.

North Young Umpire Challenge 2015
northblue.jpgNorth Young Umpire Challenge 2015
Are you a budding Young Umpire? Do you want to develop your umpiring further? Are you a club with Young Umpires looking for development opportunities?
This year's North Young Umpire Challenge takes place on Sunday 29th March at Leeds University, run by the North Young Umpire Action Group, in conjunction with North Hockey Association.
We are looking for Young Umpires aged 13-21 to represent their club / county, umpiring the North In2Hockey Finals. All umpires will need to be on camp from 6pm on the Saturday evening to prepare for the following day where they umpire matches and receive coaching and support from qualified umpire coaches. You should ideally already hold a Level 1 Umpiring qualification but those working towards this will also be considered.
All umpires will receive accommodation on the Saturday night, breakfast and lunch on the Sunday along with an umpiring shirt. There will also be awards for the "Most Promising" umpires and an opportunity for those selected to join the North Young Umpire Promising List. More information about the Promising List and the opportunities it offers can be found on the North RYUAG section of the North Website.
This is an ideal opportunity for any umpire wishing to develop further and is where many of the top North Young Umpires started their umpiring careers and have gone on to umpire at both Regional and National level.

WhatsApp spam
stopspam.jpgWhatsApp spam
WhatsApp is a free instant messaging service that works on most smartphones.
This is a new app and it would seem that part of the WhatsApp strategy is to get the message to more people, ie to send out emails that use a recipients address book to generate more (unwanted) emails!
We recommend that if you receive emails with a Subject line that you do not recognise or a sender you do not know DO NOT OPEN THEM - DELETE THEM.
That way they cannot spam the contents of your address book!
