Let’s not make it hard for umpires to get training or attend meetings. It is especially difficult for young umpires to travel to after school meetings. Even experienced umpires have difficulty reaching meetings following afternoon games. We’ve been training, coaching, and meeting with association members based on a model developed before there were computers, let alone the Internet. The UmpireHockey Online Umpiring Course, written and presented by Cris Maloney, is available online for $39.99. Maloney is also the author of Field Hockey: Understanding the Game (available from Amazon for $14.99 plus shipping). Sign up now by clicking here.
