As I will outline on Monday night please ensure that you communicate to all coaches and captains that Umpires will be advised to, as per FIH rules, to card captains a minimum green for any arguing/ whinging/ complaining from the coach or bench to or at any umpires about the state of umpiring or even just the slightest of come on didn’t you see that!!
WE CANNOT BUILD UP OUR JUNIOR UMPIRES OR SENIORS FOR THAT MATTER IF THIS IS WHAT THEY HAVE TO DEAL WITH!!
I’m not saying all coaches/benches are doing this but just letting you all know to get the word out there please BECAUSE ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
If you are curious about what rules are being implemented please refer to
Section: * Playing the game (captains) 3.4 pg 16
* Umpiring (Control) 2.3(c) pg 44
This will also be implemented thru players on the field as well!!
