Area Umpiring Appointments



The Appointing Team are responsible for all appointments - outdoor, indoor & education - made across the Midlands Area.

There will be opportunities for everyone who wishes to take appointments. For us to be able to appoint you to matches you do need to be registered on the Game Management System (GMS). So please sign up and add your availability - see details below.

We are currently appointing to Midlands Hockey League matches, starting with the two Premier divisions and then working down the divisions. Our approach to appointing is to fill each level across both genders with the most appropriate available umpires and then move down to the next level. We rotate umpires across levels and genders.

Appointments can also be made to (pre-season) friendlies and tournaments in the Midlands Area.
