Umpiring is a fantastic way to learn more about hockey, to develop your skills and progress through the umpiring grades. Whether you want to get involved at club level, or have aspirations to umpire at the international stage, you can gain help and support from Hockey Ireland, your provincial umpiring association and the Irish Hockey Umpires Association (IHUA). For more information, please visit our pathway page or our E-Learning Hub.
