EuroHockey Umpires 4 Europe

Umpires 4 Eurose (U4E) is normally a two-year programme, with the possibility of additional years for suitable candidates. It is aimed at promising young umpires, umpires who have already been members of the U4E Programme, and umpires who would like to be nominated for UDP.

U4E runs a practical weekend in Breda, Netherlands in August each year for all umpires. U4E members will umpire a number of games in the prestigious Push Hockey Trophy, which attracts some of the best Under 18 and Under 16 teams from Belgium and The Netherlands. The weekend will also include presentations from respected umpires and UMs, one-to-one coaching with mentors, and each umpire will also receive a personal video of their umpiring, with coach commentary.

U4E will also present a minimum of two webinars per year to which members will be invited, delivered by high quality presenters.

EuroHockey Umpire Development Programme

EuroHockey Umpire Development Programme (UDP) has been a successful pioneering initiative which has been running in Europe for over ten years.

The UDP targets talented young umpires within Europe and provides a programme of events running over a three-year period. The programme is planned by two Mentors who provide personal tuition and guidance throughout the 3 years and organise seminars, events and practical weekends.

To be eligible for selection, umpires must attend and participate fully in the U4E Practical Weekend in Breda, The Netherlands, normally every year at the end of August.

The programme for each group will be developed on an annual basis by the Group mentors taking advantage of tournament opportunities within each year e.g. World League, Euro Hockey League, EuroHockey Championships etc. A typical year may include tournament seminar, launch of new group in April, two tournament events, practical weekend, graduation (October), 1-1 mentor visit and coaching.
