13th MayChairman's Interim Update - EH FfF and London/South East Area Activity and Potential Impacts

By way of an interim update to members, work continues with the development of implementation arrangements to deliver the London and South East Areas and associated capabilities under the EH FfF Initiative. At the time of writing, the new management arrangements for Leagues and Officials are starting to emerge and it looks likely that the new areas will take on umpire appointing and resource management responsibilities from September. It is expected that the areas will also take on responsibility for all umpires once they have adequate resource in place but that is unlikely to be the case this year. Therefore, the KHUA Management Team has agreed that the Association will no longer appoint umpires from the start of the 2021-22 Season. However, KHUA will remain in existence to provide support to Level 1 Club Umpires and Candidate Umpires until such time as the areas have the capacity to pick up this responsibility.

Members may wish to be aware that because it is important that Umpire Liability Insurance is in place to safeguard them from any third party liability claim, KHUA is keeping the long standing members’ Umpire Liability Insurance in place and this will be effective provided the individual is a member of the Association and that KHUA continues to exist as a properly formulated entity. In this context, we plan to carry forward last season’s paid membership subscription to the end of the new season which will best serve members’ interests. There is no restriction on an umpire remaining a member of KHUA having joined one of the new area bodies.

Looking forward, it is likely that there may be no hockey-related role for KHUA after the 2021/22 Season concludes in which case we will move to dissolve the Association; however, this is a decision for the Membership to take, probably at a Special General Meeting, as is the consequential issue as to what should be done with any remaining Association funds. Please note that the Association’s Constitution makes specific provision for such an occurrence.

I will continue to update the Membership when either appropriate or necessary. Meanwhile, stay safe,

2nd AprEfF Implementation - Registration with London as Primary Activity Area

Any KHUA Member whose primary geographical location or intended Area for Season 2021-22 and beyond is the London Area should register that intention (with the London Area) through completion of the UPDATED London Area Questionnaire; please note there is a separate Notice and process for those wishing to notify their intention to officiate predominantly in the South East Area. Please see the relevant text below extracted from the London Area Notice on this topic:

Dear All,

I do hope that this email will help you to understand a little more about the restructure, where officiating fits in and, most importantly, asks you about your preferences for the next season.

I would urge everyone to complete the questionnaire as it is important that everyone’s views and feelings can be taken into account as things move forward. The questionnaire is where you can express your preferences as to how you wish to become involved with officiating next season. By completing the questionnaire you will ensure that the London Area, the other areas and England Hockey will be able to communicate with you about all hockey related issues.

Here is the link to the UPDATED "London Area Officiating Questionnaire":

As always, I am available to answer any queries and questions so please do not hesitate to contact me about any issues involved with the restructure.

Any KHUA Member whose primary geographical location or intended Area for Season 2021-22 and beyond is the London Area should register that intention (with the London Area) through completion of the UPDATED London Area Questionnaire; please note there is a separate Notice and process for those wishing to notify their intention to officiate predominantly in the South East Area. Please see the relevant text below extracted from the London Area Notice on this topic:

Dear All,

I do hope that this email will help you to understand a little more about the restructure, where officiating fits in and, most importantly, asks you about your preferences for the next season.

I would urge everyone to complete the questionnaire as it is important that everyone’s views and feelings can be taken into account as things move forward. The questionnaire is where you can express your preferences as to how you wish to become involved with officiating next season. By completing the questionnaire you will ensure that the London Area, the other areas and England Hockey will be able to communicate with you about all hockey related issues.

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.
