Umpires are essential to hockey – the game doesn’t happen without them.

Intermediate umpires are regularly involved in matches in the district leagues or lower national leagues. They are umpires who have a few years experience, and really enjoy being an umpire and provide a weekly commitment to the sport. These umpires are working towards a solid level of decision-making and a good understanding of the rules and their implementation.

There are many opportunities for the skill level development for umpires looking to progress. Scottish Hockey can help umpires advance to the next level on their journey in the sport. The pages on this website will offer guidance and support for developing umpires looking to fulfil their potential in the sport.
