Rules & Umpiring

A summary of the rules of hockey can be found in our Hockey Rules Summary along with details of the 2015 Rules Changes.

We can't play hockey without umpires and must treat them with respect.  The club is aiming to maintain a large panel of qualified umpires both for club games and the pool run by Herts & Beds Hockey Umpires' Association.

Would you like to try umpiring?

Give your name to the Umpire Liaison Officer if you want to go on the next umpiring course.

Please read the England Hockey Code of Ethics and Behaviour and the Blueharts Members' Code of Conduct.
