Get into Umpiring

To join NPUA, members are nominated by their region for the level 3 umpiring or level 3 umpire coaching award. If they are successful in their assessment, they become members of NPUA.

We work closely with England Hockey, as well as the regional umpiring associations, to support with the recruitment of new umpires. Whether you are an experienced national league player thinking of hanging up your stick, a young person with an interest in officiating, or a long-term hockey enthusiast who wants to give something back, umpiring can be an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
