Great Umpire Opportunity for HAW

To all clubs,

The 2018 season is approaching and we are in planning stage for all aspects of the year including umpires.

We are very lucky to have Stirling Sharpe from Hockey ACT coming to visit us on Saturday 17 March.  He will be delivering some umpiring courses for us.  Stirling is the Umpiring and Coaching Development Coordinator for HACT and he umpires at local, national and international level, so this is a great opportunity for our local umpires to learn from someone with a wealth of experience.

Course 1 – New and Beginner Umpires                  2pm-3pm

Stirling will present a course to assist new and beginner umpires to better understand the role and how to do it.

Course 2 – Intermediate Umpires                            3.30pm-4.30pm

If you have umpired for a while then this is the course for you.

Course 3 – Capital League Umpiring                         5pm – 6pm

If you are aspiring to umpire at the highest level locally, we would like you to make the most of this opportunity to talk with Stirling about how Capital League will work this year from an Albury umpiring perspective.

Please canvass your members.  If each club could please send at least 3 representatives to the first two courses, and one to the Capital League course.  Of course more are welcome.

Could clubs please respond to admin@haw.net.au by Monday 12 March with the names of their club members who will be coming along.

And can you please canvass your members for any new or returning umpires who would like to be on the umpire email list for this year and send their names to umpires@haw.net.au.

Remember that without umpires we do not have a game.

Regards

Updates from the HAW President and Secretary Meetings:

Presidents and Secretaries meeting
 Presidents and Secretaries,

I’d just like to let you guys all know that I’m transitioning into the Athlete Development role which Sharyn has recently left. I’m sure I’ll see most of you at the upcoming P&S meeting anyway, but I’d just like to take this chance to set out my stall for the coming year.
First of all, Hook In2 Hockey and Schools Hockey are both looking good due to the hard work of Sharyn, Jade and Cayte, as well as our teams of coaches. Hopefully both programmes are as successful as they possibly can be this year…
Secondly, I would like to re-iterate the importance of getting all your coaches qualified at the appropriate level as soon as possible. Your currently unqualified coaches should, at the very least, be completing the online component of the Community Level qualification. This qualification is free, and from my point of view will be non-negotiable for all HAW coaches this year. The practical component of the qualification can be signed off on by a club President, coaching co-ordinator, or Level 1 or 2 coach. I’ll also be more than happy to help out personally if any of you need an extra assessor. HAW are currently working on a Level 1 course for late April. Coaches must have completed their Community Coaching course in order to be eligible for Level 1, so you should really get onto it asap. Community Coaching is a free qualification, the theory component is all online, and there is nothing in there to catch anybody out. I’ve had a few students at Scots complete the course without any hassle, so there should be no reason why all our coaches can’t do so by season’s start.
Thirdly, linked to the point above, I’m attaching some resources related to athlete warm-ups. Hockey Australia has endorsed the FIFA 11+ as the preferred warm-up for all athletes, and I would like to pass on that endorsement to your clubs. (See attachments below) Injury prevention may not be something that many of our younger players think about, but I think that it’s important to get these foundations in place for our players as they progress into our Senior ranks.
tl;dr This year I’ll be focusing greatly on coaching qualifications and the quality of experience for all our players.
Many thanks,
Douglas Agar

Hi all,

This year’s Presidents and Secretaries dates are as follows:

  • Wed, 14 Mar
  • Thu, 17 May
  • Wed, 20 Jun
  • Tue, 07 Aug

Another date for your calendar is Monday 19 November for our AGM.

As requested last year I have shared the dates around training nights so the night does not just impact one club.

All meetings will begin at 6.30.  If you misplace this email the dates can be found on the web under “Calendar” and are also shown in Clubhouse bookings in that area.

I will send a reminder about a week beforehand for each of them.

Thanks
