To: All Umpires
Cc: Convenors of Affiliated Club’s (Men’s, Women’s and Youth)
HKHA Council Members
HKHA Section Committee Members
All umpires are required to complete an annual registration process.
If you fail to complete this annual registration process, you will become an “Inactive Member” and you are not allowed to officiate any hockey games held in Hong Kong.
If you have been listed as “Inactive Member” for two seasons or more, you will be deregistered from the HKHAUS membership list.
For the annual registration process, you MUST
(i) complete the online registration form:
(ii) attend at least one refresher course.
Notes for online registration form:
1. Old Umpire Number (0xxx, 1xxx, 2xxx, 3xxx): We are going to implement the Panel system this season. Each umpire will be given a new umpire number (4xxx) in the refresher course.
2. Registered Club (Umpire Duties): each umpire should register with a club. This may not necessarily be the club he/she plays for. If an umpire does not register with any club, he/she can only do appointed duties, but not any club duty.
3. There will be four Refresher Courses scheduled in August and September. You are required to attend at least one of them. Prior online registration is a MUST. You may only register for ONE of them. There will be a quota of 50 for each refresher course. You will be put in the waiting list if the course is FULL. Anyone who has registered for one refresher course but fails to attend for any reason, may register for another course, but will only be put in the waiting list. There will be a workshop for Premier Panel Umpires. This workshop will be for those who will be appointed in the coming season. Those being invited are not required to attend other refresher courses, unless they are unable to attend this workshop. Below are the details for the upcoming refresher courses.

4. HKHAUS will like to launch a Mentorship Scheme this season. We will like to invite those experienced umpires (preferably with more than 5 years of umpiring experience in Hong Kong) to be our Mentors. Further details will be announced in future circulars. Please show your interest as either the Mentor or Mentee during the registration.
