5th FebUpdate on AGM Resolution

After a long and detailed consultation process with members over the past few years, the Board of England Hockey met yesterday (3 February 2020) to approve the resolution that will be put before the 2020 AGM seeking a mandate to deliver the “Structure Fit for the Future” proposals. The proposals were shared with members last year and, in light of the positive response, the Board wants to work with members to deliver the change over the proposed timeline.

The wording of the resolution will be:
Approval of the resolution to endorse the ‘Structure Fit for the Future’ proposal and instruct England Hockey to work with the membership with the aim to deliver the changes proposed in the timeline set out in the full proposal document.

We are also pleased to announce that England Hockey has partnered with Civica Election Services (formerly the Electoral Reform Services) who will be managing the voting process for the AGM on our behalf. We believe this will give members full confidence in an independent and transparent process and details can be downloaded here: Civica Election Services – AGM Process or by a link on the England Hockey AGM web page.

Members are advised of the following timeline:
20 February 2020 – Closing date for notification of any proposed AGM business to the EH Company Secretary.
24 February 2020 – AGM papers issued to members
15 March 2020 (19.30) – Closing date for electronic appointment of proxies and postal voting for vacant roles.
17 March 2020 (19.30) - England Hockey AGM (CES will also be conducting and overseeing the voting process at the AGM)

The full details of the AGM Resolution proposal - A Structure Fit for the Future, including consultation summary can be found here:www.englandhockey.co.uk/agmresolution

These changes have come from feedback provided by our members so we would encourage all members to review these important changes and vote on the proposals. If you have any questions or comments please don’t hesitate to get in touch at agm.resolution@englandhockey.co.uk

28th JanHockey Family ticket window closing soon

England Hockey are looking to promote the fact that the Hockey Family window closes on the 4th February and although people will still be able to buy tickets in the general sale they will no longer be able to select which club they are attached to and we will not be able to group the tickets.

We would like to encourage Hampshire Clubs to choose a date and promote it within their clubs as a Club Day, encouraging people to buy their own tickets and using the hockey selector to associate with their club.

We have launched our Hockey Rewards and for each ticket a club member buys they will earn 1 point and yes you guessed it points make prizes. Clubs can win some great items which can be raffled or gifted to club members.

We know how social Hampshire clubs are so lets make our presence felt and heard at Pro League 2020.

27th JanBasingstoke Hockey Club’s second pitch is open for play!

As we welcome in the New Year and the second half of the 19/20 season pushes back, Basingstoke Hockey Club are happy to announce that our second pitch is now playable!

What this means for all visiting Clubs is that any home fixtures that were previously not at our main Down Grange home ground (e.g. from Thornden School), will now be moved to Pitch 2. Timings will likely change, these will be notified via your fixtures co-ordinator and updated on the Hampshire HA website as soon as possible, so please check before you travel!

Secondly, as Basingstoke Hockey Club is committed to providing a safe environment for all young people, we want to ensure that all necessary steps are taken to protect young people from inappropriate or uninformed use of their images. We want to take this opportunity to remind all visiting teams that we have a Club photographer on site most weekends taking photos of games being played. We display signage to make players aware, but if there is anyone that does not consent to their photo being taken, please could we ask them or their captains to contact a BHC team captain, the photographer or Club secretary. As a final check BHC home captains should also ask the visiting captain, but as you can imagine, sometimes this can be overlooked.

We look forward to being able to extend our warm Down Grange hospitality to ALL of our visiting teams! Please join us at the bar and raise a glass, next time you are here.

19th JanLights - Umpire Responsibilities

All umpires (HHUA and club) are reminded that if they turn up for a match to be played under lights that they are perfectly entitled to refuse to umpire the game if they feel the lighting is insufficient for the game. Games played under lights that do not meet the required lighting level will void any insurance that is held, whether it is the clubs or HHUA.

Also please let me know if there are pitches (with lighting approval) that you feel are not good enough even if you umpire the match.

AGM Governance Proposal Booklet

Hi All

Over the past few weeks, a lot of you have been in touch concerning the finalised proposals for the AGM Governance Review, which is due to be voted on by the members of England Hockey in March 2020. Please find a link to the booklet below, which will be shared with HA’s, Leagues and Clubs within the next hour:

www.englandhockey.co.uk/astructurefitforthefuture

Over the past 24 months, representatives from the NPUA and Regional HUAs have been working with us at England Hockey to create the “Vision of Umpiring”. This is a whole game approach, which includes reviewing all pathways, educational offers and the relationship of Umpiring Bodies with the proposed Areas, as well as with England Hockey. In the booklet, we have made reference to some of the work that has been completed so far by the group, however there is still a lot to discuss and finalise. We intend to communicate more from this group early in 2020 on the future of Umpiring and Officiating.

Due to this, I’d like to draw your attention to section 6 where we have extended this timeline by an extra season to include County HUA’s at a later date, allowing time for us to focus on setting the structure correctly for Umpiring (in line with the above), whilst working through the impact per area and allowing us to communicate correctly, accurately and clearly to all of our umpiring colleagues and members.

Please feel free to review the booklet and feel free to contact me in the New Year with any thoughts or questions. In the meantime, thank you for your input and energies this year in Umpiring across the country to support our game at all levels.

Have a very Merry Christmas and look forward to an exciting 2020.

Best wishes
David

Red Cards and Matchday Misconduct Offences

To all those that umpire

Welcome to the new season from the County Discipline team. There have been changes this year, I have taken over as County Disciplinary Administrator (CDA) from Chris Bond, however Chris is staying as the Deputy CDA.
A few of you this season will give a Red Card or be involved with a Matchday Misconduct Offence MMO. An MMO is a an offence that happens on the match day that would have led to red card being awarded during the match. A MMO can only be awarded by a Level 1 or above umpire, while anyone can submit issue a red card if they are umpiring the match.

The latest versions of all the relevant forms are on the HHUA website at https://www.hhua.co.uk/public/handbook.php along with some guidance on how to complete the form. If you need further help, please contact myself or Chris for additional help. The form is simple, just tell us what happened.
When you have complete the form, please send it me at discipline@hampshireha.co.uk and Chris at cwbond300@btinternet.com so that we can process it.

Please remember that a red card or MMO is a rare occurrence – you are unlikely to be involved In one. However, I suggest that you read the guidance before the start of the season so you are aware of what to do if necessary.

Thanks

The latest versions of all the relevant forms are on the HHUA website at https://www.hhua.co.uk/public/handbook.php along with some guidance on how to complete the form. If you need further help, please contact myself or Chris for additional help. The form is simple, just tell us what happened.
When you have complete the form, please send it me at discipline@hampshireha.co.uk and Chris at cwbond300@btinternet.com so that we can process it.

Please remember that a red card or MMO is a rare occurrence – you are unlikely to be involved In one. However, I suggest that you read the guidance before the start of the season so you are aware of what to do if necessary.

Thanks

HHUA Shirt Policy 2019/20

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The Management Committee has reviewed the situation with regard to shirt supply as there are a limited number of possible suppliers. Adidas currently supply a new range of blue and orange shirts, with a possible white shirt in the offing, to the NPUA. At the moment, there is no intention for South to change their colours, so HHUA will remain with the current options while the higher-level decisions bottom out.

HHUA will continue with Tempest for new members/replacement Orange and Green HHUA LOGO'd shirts for at least the next 12 months, available through the HHUA Website. The White version remains available though CMP from the website

Club Umpires may purchase the same shirts from Tempest, with the same logo, but CLUB Umpire underneath, for use within the County to increase the corporate look of all umpires.

Members are to be reminded that HHUA Policy is that they will wear a current County Badged Shirt for all Appointments in the county or region (including those of Higher Bodies making themselves available for County/Regional appointments). Notwithstanding this regulation, for the 2019/20 season ONLY, for those who do not currently have a white HHUA shirt, members may wear a white polo shirt (with non-controversial logo (ask Sec/Mike Robson for guidance if you are not sure whether your logo is permitted)) for the rare occasions when green/orange will not suffice.

If you need guidance on any of this information please contact Mike Robson before next season.
