15/05: Two Northerns Umpires to FIH Pro Series
Next Event: 18-21 July 2019 : Premier Hockey League... Calendar
As part of our on-going development of umpires and umpiring in Northerns, we present regular courses for people wishing to become umpires. Candidates who successfully complete the course and examination are each awarded an official SAHA "Level 0" umpire's certificate. This is in effect a "learner's license" for umpiring which gives the newly-qualified umpire access to a number of opportunities within the province for gaining practical experience and receiving further coaching from umpires' coaches. All upcoming courses will be advertised on this page - please check it regularly!
The cost for attending the Level 0 Outdoor Umpiring course is R240 per person, payable strictly in cash at the course. The duration of the course is approximately three to four hours and the examination – which is completed online (not at the course) – takes approximately 30 minutes to an hour to complete. There is no age restriction but a mark of 70% is required to pass the examination.
People who wish to attend a course as a "refresher" (with no examination) may do so at a cost of R110 per person, payable in cash at the course. Please Contact Us if you wish to attend a course in this manner in order that we may plan adequately.
No courses are currently scheduled. If you wish to be notified when the next one is scheduled, please register on our waiting list below.
