If you’re a fan of hockey, you know that umpires play an important role in ensuring that games are played fairly and that the rules are followed. Umpires also have the opportunity to stay involved in the game they love even after they’re finished playing.
The Manx Hockey Umpires Association has a comprehensive program to welcome, train and develop new hockey umpires. Friendly local umpiring leaders will teach you the rules of the game, how to umpire effectively, and how to deal with players and coaches.
