At Tartans, we encourange all players, junior and senior, young and old to learn and play by the rules. We actively encourange our junior players to learn to umpire by providing support and training.
Before umpiring their first game, all new umpires must complete the online Hockey NSW Hockey Ed course. This is a basic interactive online course and exam which takes no more than about half an hour to complete. After successfully completing the on-line course, new umpires are allocated to games under the supervision of experienced senior umpires. Generally new umpires will begin on the under 11 competition with supervision from an experienced umpire. In this way new umpires are supported until they gain sufficient confidence and expertise to tackle games on their own.
Tartans also provide many umpires to the more senior junior grades and to the senior competition.
