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!

Do you ever feel that other teams’ umpires fall short of the desired level?  Perhaps other teams think your umpires are not up to scratch.  England Hockey is trying to improve umpiring at all levels in order to make the game safer and more enjoyable for the players.  Now is your chance to help with this improvement.  An Umpire Developers course has been produced aimed at club level umpires.  Each club should have at least one person who acts as the Umpire Developer for their club and the Yorkshire Hockey Umpires Association is putting on one of these courses, at a cost of only £10, and there are still places available:

Wakefield Hockey Club
Wednesday 18th February 2015
6:30 to 10:00 pm

If you would like to attend this course please send a cheque made out to YHUA to the value of £10 to:

Rearrangemnt of Matches Postponed on 24 & 31 January 2015
yhalogoblue.jpgRearrangement of Matches Postponed on 24 & 31 January 2015
Any league matches postponed on 24 January 2015 due to the cold weather will need to be rearranged by clubs in line with League Rules. The number of postponed matches did not reach a large enough percentage for them to be moved to en bloc to a new date.

All league matches postponed on 31 January 2015 due to the cold weather have been moved en bloc to Saturday 11 April 2015
(the week after Easter). Clubs will need to book pitches, and add venues and start times (once agreed with opponents) to fixtures on the YHA Website.  You can always, by mutual agreement, play these fixtures earlier than 11 April, and don't foget that matches could also be played on weekday evenings.

UNIVERSITY CLUBS will need to reorganise postponements moved en bloc to dates outside their term times to other dates prior to Easter.

Any fixtures postponed on Sunday 1 February will need to be rearranged in line with League Rules. These must be rearranged within the next seven days to be played within 15 days of date of postponement.

There are still fixtures from this weekend (31 Jan/1 Feb) on the website that are not shown as either played (with a score) or as postponed (with reason). Should these 'blank' fixtures not be updated by tomorrow night
(Tueday 3 Feb) defaulting clubs will be fined £15, in line with League Rules. A list of the fixtures concerned is shown below (in "read the rest...").


If you encounter any problems with any rearrangements contact your Division Representatives.

University of Leeds 8s (Development Squad) are looking for a couple of fair friendlies against other development teams or teams that had to pull out of leagues due to inability to put a squad out every week. We are looking to enter this team into the yorkshire league next year so any friendlies would be greatly appreciated to get them prepared for the standard of hockey for next season. We are fairly flexible on dates also.
