FHumpires founder to host seminar session in Bristol

Keely Dunn, founder of FHumpires, is holding an umpiring seminar and Q&A session at Keynsham, near Bristol in April.

FHumpires provides support and mentorship to umpires all over the world, whether newbies umpiring in their first season, through club umpires with 20 years of experience, to international FIH umpires.

On April 8, from 7pm to 9pm Keely will be at Keynsham Hockey Club’s clubhouse for a lively seminar and Q&A.  

Topics to be covered include:

  • How can your positioning on the pitch help you get the big decisions right and ensure that you and the players all enjoy a great day of hockey?
  • When and why should you use cards? Do you feel uncertain about when to move up or down with management interventions, but are worried that giving cards will cause a match to spiral out of control?

Umpires, players and coaches from any club all welcome – please use this sign up form. You can get a flavour of the event by watching a recording of a similar event held at Reading Hockey Club in September 2023.
