16th SepKHUA Commemorative shirts

At the last KHUA Management Team Committee Meeting on 8th September 2021, it was decided that as a "thank you" to all members who have taken appointments over the years, they would be offered a special KHUA Polo Shirt. These are to be offered at no cost to the members. Members will not be charged p&p, even though the shop adds this to the order. We are unable to alter this on the website.

It was decided that this was the fairest and best way to proceed. It was impossible to ascertain how many games individual umpires, coaches and assessors had taken appointments for since 1966, as the full website records only start in 2006 and paper records prior to that are incomplete.

You can order ONE of these shirts free of charge if you have, at any time, previously fulfilled an official appointment from KHUA. The official appointment could be as an umpire, coach or assessor. You are at liberty to order more than one. However, extra shirts will be charged at cost price and p&p.

These shirts can be ordered from the shop, which current members can access from their personal areas on the KHUA website. We will attempt to contact previous members from our records, if we have not erased their details due to GDPR requirements.

If you know of any colleagues who were previously members and had fulfilled official appointments from KHUA, please could you ask them to contact me at secretary@khua.co.uk or give me their details (please check with them first).

12th SepKHUA Umpire Radios

At the last KHUA Management Team Committee Meeting on 8th September 2021, it was unanimously agreed that all umpires who took appointments in the past, and were issued with KHUA Umpire Radios, will now not be required to return these to the KHUA, regardless as to whether or not they intend to take appointments with any of the new FfF EH Areas. It is understood that the new Areas will be using the same radios as those that the KHUA have issued albeit an updated Mark II compatible version. Thus, colleagues taking appointments this coming season should find that their existing radios will pair and function. If anyone is not intending to umpire in the future, they are at liberty to donate their radio to their Club or to another umpire for use on non-appointed games, or dispose of safely.

Importantly, as of the 1st September 2021, the KHUA will no longer be supporting the radios that have been issued, beyond the small number of "patch leads" that the Treasurer currently holds and a few replacements but previously owned radios (no guarantees!) After this date any problems with the radios will be down to the individual member/umpire to resolve either personally or through the appropriate Management Committee or Officer of their chosen selected new Region/Area.

All agreement forms signed at the time the radios were issued will be shredded as soon as is possible.

12th SepKHUA STATUS FOR THE NEW SEASON

I have received a number of calls and messages from KHUA Members who were uncertain about the status of KHUA after the beginning of September. To be clear, the London and South East Areas have picked up the responsibility for umpire support, development and management previously undertaken by KHUA, including appointing to their area fixtures. All such appointments have to be made via the new Game Management System which contains the fixture details and utilises the new EHO Software to provide the umpire details etc. KHUA may be asked to support area activities should resources be in short supply and we are maintaining insurance for our members until otherwise notified. As the 2021-22 Season progresses it is likely that KUHA activity will gradually be scaled back further and we will keep members informed through website notices or e-mails what is happening. Eventually, we will address the issue of dissolution of KHUA and what happens to any remaining assets which will be a matter for members to decide at one or more General Meetings i.a.w. the KHUA Constitution.

Therefore, as lead responsibility has moved to the new areas, those are the correct Points of Contact for members on umpiring issues, albeit KHUA will endeavour to provide support or guidance if essential.

8th SepLaunch of the England Hockey Officiating club (EHO) – registration/log in issues

Many of you appear to have had issues attempting to access the new EH systems.

Due to the volume of enrolments (over 8,000 e-mails), for officials and players on the new EH systems, the system has had a huge backlog to process. This has caused an issue with the e-mail providers in sending these verification codes in a timely manner.

The challenge over the verification codes has been that they expire and due to the backlog, they haven't come through on time.

The Systems team have been working hard to resolve this issue and should be resolved shortly. Please try to stagger your registration/log ins over the next few days.

Thanks for your patience.

12th AugQ&As - 12 August 2021

I have been receiving various queries and concerns from KHUA members. I have collated these into a Q&A document, which will hopefully answer your questions.

I will, of course, update you as further information is received.
---------------------------------------------
Q1. Who will I receive appointments from?
A1. Your nominated Primary Area (e.g. South East or London).

Q2. Where can I see my appointments?
A2. Appointments will be published on the new GMS (Game Management System), which should be available from 16th August 2021.

Q3. Appointed games - Will I have to claim expenses from the home or away club?
A3. No. Expenses will be paid by your Area. More details of how this will be managed will be available from your Area in due course.

Q4. How do I claim my expenses for official appointments?
A4. The will be a sub-menu to claim expenses on GMS.

Q5. Which level of game will I be appointed to?
A5. You will be appointed to approximately at least the equivalent of your current level. You can, of course, discuss this with your lead appointer.

Q6. Who will be my Appointer?
A6. Please see recent emails and KHUA website posts for information:
• 6th August post for the South East Area;
• 10th August post for the London Area;
• Your Lead Appointer should be contacting you before the start of the season;
• However, it is currently unclear whether these appointment leads will actually be doing the appointments or they will have appointing assistants/colleagues and whether they will be appointing to both genders or there will be a separate appointer for men and women.

Q7. Pre-season and friendly games - Will I have to claim expenses from the home or away club?
A7. Yes. This is a private arrangement between you and the clubs involved.

Q8. How do I get pre-season friendlies?
A8. As usual, by word of mouth. Also, update your availability on the KHUA website. Although it will not be used for making appointments, the system is still up and running to accept availability information.

Q9. I have completed the initial survey. Do I have to do anything else?
A9. Yes. Register on GMS and EHO (England Hockey Officiating) once notified on or after 16th August 2021.

A.10 Yes. However, you will need to opt for Gold membership if you wish to take umpire appointments in your nominated Primary Area.

Q11. Can I nominate another Area as well as my primary one?
A11. Yes. You can nominate a secondary Area. Add this detail to your notes in GMS.

Q12. On the EHO Matrix, what does "Undertake Independent Appointments Within Area/National" mean?
A12. Independent appointments are not official GMS appointments – i.e. they are games which you have arranged yourself.

Or you can continue to use KHUA Umpire Liability Insurance whilst you remain a member and the Association remains in being.

A16. OMS will be superseded by GMS. All current information on OMS will be migrated to GMS.

A20. You can still use your radio if you are continuing to take appointments. However, if you are only going to umpire club games, you will have to return it.

Q21. I don’t have a radio How do I obtain one?
A21. Contact your officiating contact in your nominated Primary Area – see A6 above.

8th AugUmpiring pre-season friendlies

You should be aware that KHUA will not be appointing through our website. All appointments will be done via the South East Area but published on the new EH GMS (Games Management System). You will need to register with the EHO (from 16th August), if you intend to take umpire appointments in the in your nominated primary Area.
As you may have noticed from the latest EH corrected EHO Member benefits matrix, Gold membership is the only level that will allow you to take umpire appointments.
The new South East Area has been asked about umpires for pre-season friendlies in September and are referring queries and requests from clubs to the relevant umpire lead in the Oaks, Martlets and Invicta divisions.
If you are interested in umpiring pre-season friendlies in the South East Area please update your availability on the KHUA website. Although it will not be used for making appointments, the system is still up and running to accept availability information and a few members have already added their availability.
The relevant umpire lead will contact clubs with a possible appointment but members will need to sort out expenses with the club, if any, as there is no longer any mechanism for paying expenses through our website and members will need to liaise directly with the home club.

6th AugEH – EHO launch and Match Officiating

Costs for the various levels of EHO membership have now been confirmed:
Bronze – free
Silver - £15
Gold - £30
-----------------------------------------------------
England Hockey Officiating Club (EHO) - Countdown to Launch

We hope that you’ve been staying safe and enjoying all of the hockey on TV from Tokyo recently, whilst preparing for the start of the 2021/2 season.

As communicated previously, we are delighted that we are getting closer to the launch of the EHO – a unified club, servicing the country but with local delivery through the new 8 Administrative Area Companies across the country. This approach brings Officiating the opportunity for the following:

• To deliver a standardised approach to the recruitment, development and retention of all Officials across the game
• To develop high quality, easy to access, development resources for Officiating at all levels
• To create a transparent, easily navigable career pathway for officials, which is structured to enable all to perform to their full potential
• To use technology effectively to streamline processes, free up volunteer time and benefit from economies of scale.
As shared previously, to encourage Officials from all levels of the game to come on board as an EHO Member, 3 Subscription Tiers will be available.

To view the latest subscription document (EHO member benefits - 6 August 2021), go to the KHUA website menu - Information> Information&Downloads>England Hockey:Fit for the Future.

For individuals under the age of 18, or under 24 and in Full Time Education, we are offering a “Junior Membership” with the same benefits as the Gold Membership of £5 a year.

What happens next?
We are finalising the joining process for individuals via the England Hockey Game Management System (GMS) and conducting testing to ensure that things run smoothly from W/C 16th August.

We will be inviting individuals to join the EHO from this time and we will be in touch before the launch date with the “How to Join” instructions.

England Hockey Officiating Club (EHO) - Countdown to Launch

We hope that you’ve been staying safe and enjoying all of the hockey on TV from Tokyo recently, whilst preparing for the start of the 2021/2 season.

As communicated previously, we are delighted that we are getting closer to the launch of the EHO – a unified club, servicing the country but with local delivery through the new 8 Administrative Area Companies across the country. This approach brings Officiating the opportunity for the following:

• To deliver a standardised approach to the recruitment, development and retention of all Officials across the game
• To develop high quality, easy to access, development resources for Officiating at all levels
• To create a transparent, easily navigable career pathway for officials, which is structured to enable all to perform to their full potential
• To use technology effectively to streamline processes, free up volunteer time and benefit from economies of scale.
As shared previously, to encourage Officials from all levels of the game to come on board as an EHO Member, 3 Subscription Tiers will be available.

To view the latest subscription document (EHO member benefits - 6 August 2021), go to the KHUA website menu - Information> Information&Downloads>England Hockey:Fit for the Future.

For individuals under the age of 18, or under 24 and in Full Time Education, we are offering a “Junior Membership” with the same benefits as the Gold Membership of £5 a year.

What happens next?
We are finalising the joining process for individuals via the England Hockey Game Management System (GMS) and conducting testing to ensure that things run smoothly from W/C 16th August.

We will be inviting individuals to join the EHO from this time and we will be in touch before the launch date with the “How to Join” instructions.

In the meantime, if you have any questions about the EHO please click on the link below to see our FAQs, or e-mail the EHO Administration Team -officiating@englandhockey.co.uk

5th AugFfF Interim Update

Dear Member,

I appreciate it has been several weeks since we were last able to provide a FfF update focussed on KHUA Members’ needs but that is because the last few weeks have been very busy for EH, together with the London and South East Areas Transition Teams, and there has been a lot happening. To some extent there remains a degree of uncertainty around what next Season should look like in respect of the management of officiating but both areas are currently compiling newsletters which will set out in detail exactly what has been decided, decisions that are on the cusp of being made, and those things that are still a little way off. I appreciate that not knowing what is going on is frustrating and, indeed, that same frustration at not being able to share definitive news with you is impacting on everyone engaged in the work. On a more positive note:

- An Update Newsletter should be circulated to everyone within the next 2 weeks;

- The new EH Games Management System (GMS), which incorporates the functionality of the existing Officiating Management System (OMS), should go live on Monday, 16 August 2021. This should provide the Areas with the ability to communicate effectively with their members (something they currently lack), and then factual information relating to what is planned to happen during the 2021-22 Season should become available (from the Oracle so as to speak);

- Every umpire will need to register on the new system (or confirm their personal details if already present) – this should also generate membership of the new England Hockey Officiating body which will facilitate things such as umpire liability insurance cover.

- We expect to be notified when individuals are able to register/confirm details on GMS and we will promulgate that information as soon as we receive it along with the relevant links to do so. For now all we can tell you is that it is likely to be in the week commencing Monday 16 August 2021.

Finally, it should be noted that whilst it is currently intended for KHUA to remain active during the 2021-22 Season, albeit with a reduced remit that includes not providing appointed umpires, there will be a progressive move away from a county approach (currently provided by KHA and KHUA) to an area approach (provided by the London or South East Areas for hockey within Kent and the local vicinity).

1st AugNew Red Card & MMO form

There is a new Red Card & MMO form, effective immediately (1st August 2021).

To download the form, go to the KHUA website menu - Information> Information&Downloads>Disciplinary>(Red Card & MMO form - 1st August 2021).

New Red Card (RC) and MMO regulations and Disrepute Offence Regulations are coming into effect from today, Sunday 1st August.

At the same time, a new red card report form comes into operation which will hopefully simplify the process of reporting for all umpires. Essentially, you complete the form with full details of the red card incident, and beyond confirming if it is a 2 x yellows = red or a straight red, categorisation is then a matter for the DAs.

All new regulations and associated forms are available on the discipline and disrepute pages of the EH website (see link below).

The guidance regarding completion of the RC & MMO report form will be updated and training/ guidance will be developed by EH to be in place for the start of the new season. This will be cascaded as soon as I receive it.

8th JulEngland Hockey Officiating Club (EHO)

I have received further information on the new club to which umpires, coaches, assessors and match officials at all levels are encouraged to join.
----------------------------------------------
We hope that you have been staying safe and well during this most recent return to hockey and enjoying the EH competitions or summer leagues that have been played on most pitches across the country.

As you may be aware, England Hockey were asked by the membership of EH back in 2019 to implement the proposed “Structure Fit for the Future”, where the game is moving from the existing governance structure to 8 New Areas across the country

As you may be aware, England Hockey were asked by the membership of EH back in 2019 to implement the proposed “Structure Fit for the Future”, where the game is moving from the existing governance structure to 8 New Areas across the country.

Following the release of the “Vision for Umpiring”, which was released back in June 2020, we are delighted to announce the launch of a Unified Club for all Umpires, Umpire Support and Technical Officials across the country, called England Hockey Officiating (EHO).

The EHO is a unified club, servicing the country but with local delivery through the new 8 Administrative Area Companies across the country. This approach brings Officiating the opportunity for the following
• To deliver a standardised approach to the recruitment, development and retention of all Officials across the game
• To develop high quality, easy to access, development resources for Officiating at all levels
• To create a transparent, easily navigable career pathway for officials, which is structured to enable all to perform to their full potential
• To use technology effectively to streamline processes, free up volunteer time and benefit from economies of scale.

To enhance the appeal to all levels of the game and to encourage Officials from all levels to come on board as an EHO Member, the below Subscription Tiers will be available

What happens next?

We will be writing to you in the upcoming weeks about when the membership subscription will become live, inviting you to become a member, presenting the calendar of support / educational events delivered centrally and also being contacted by your local EHO Area Officiating Committee.

In the meantime, if you have any questions about the EHO, please click on the link below to see our fact sheet and FAQ, or e-mail the Officiating Team –officiating@englandhockey.co.uk

3rd JulImportant update – London and South East Area AGMs - 8th and 26th July 2021

We have received further information regarding attendance at the South East AGM.
-----------------------------------------------------
Information
The clubs are the members of the Area
The officials (Umpires/Coaches/Assessors/Technical Officials) are members of EHO (England Hockey Officiating)

There is some confusion between the “Inaugural Area AGM” and the EHO AGM.
The inaugural meeting is for the clubs who are the members of the area.
An AGM of the EHO will be held prior to next year’s Area AGM for clubs so that all members of the EHO can have a say about matters relating to the area and the running of the EHO in the South East.
The EHO is the members club and that is where the voice of the members will be heard.

The SE Area Inaugural AGM will be by Teams/Zoom/Webinar
The attendees will be the clubs who will have a vote and invitations will be issued to Area Directors and Chairs of Committee for these appointments to be ratified. No other people are required to attend
The AGM of the EHO will be held between April and July next year at which all members of EHO will receive an invite.
-----------------------------------------------------
Although we have not received similar confirmation from the London Area, it is highly likely that all Areas will operate in the same manner.
-----------------------------------------------------
What does this mean for me?
All Clubs will receive an invitation to the appropriate Area AGM, and you may be required to attend the Area AGM as your club’s representative.
However, as a member of EHO, you will not receive an individual invitation to attend the London or South East AGM.

Should you have any further questions, please contact your KHUA Area reps:
London: Mark Anderson, Peter Mackintosh and Stephen Mason
South East: Simon Begg, Jackie Gibbs and Annette Golding

31st MarEH FfF Implementation - Future Area Organisation Information

The FfR Implementation Work continues to move forward and we will shortly be posting News Notices on this activity here on our Website or promulgating information via Block E-Mail - there will be a series of communications in the next few days.

Under FfF, County HUAs will no longer have a formal role because Umpires, as part of the Officiating Group, will be managed in the future by one of the 8 new Areas or by, or in conjunction with, NPUA if you umpire in the National League. Every umpire will be entitled to choose which Area is their primary management organisation and for KHUA Members these are likely to be either the London Area (broadly inside the M25) or the South East Area. It is expected that NPUA Umpires will also be part of an Area. This means that individual members will need to select or register with the relevant area that they are most likely to umpire in/take appointments from/is most geographically relevant. We will be promulgating information relating to both the London Area and South East Area so members will need to select the correct/relevant materials; however, for the majority of KHUA Umpires it is likely to be the South East Area that will be of most interest.
