Online Community Umpire Courses – SPRING/SUMMER 2020

**If you have emailed eventsandofficials@fieldhockeybc.com and have not received a response please check your spam/junk email folder, just in case the email got delivered there instead of your inbox.**

FHBC has made the decision to remove the cost for the Community Umpire Course until August 31, 2020. This is being offered to all members of the field hockey community within Canada. Please contact eventsandofficials@fieldhockeybc.com with your name, club, province and Field Hockey Membership number, who will provide you with the instructions to access the course free of charge. This will enable more umpires to complete the courses prior to getting back on the field and playing the game that we love.

The Online Community Courses will consist of a series of lessons and practice questions designed to prepare you for the final quiz. You will need a grade of 75% or higher in order to pass the course. Registrants will have until August 31, 2020 to complete the course, at which time the current session will expire. Participants who fail to complete the course by the deadline will need to re-register in the following session. Course registration for this session closes on August 31, 2020.

This course is available to those interested in taking the first steps towards being a rated umpire, umpires that desire a refresher, and umpires with expired certifications.  Candidates should be at least 13 years old. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Field Hockey BC office at 604-737-3146 or eventsandofficials@fieldhockeybc.com.

To register for the online course please contact eventsandofficials@fieldhockeybc.com with your name, club, province, and your Field Hockey Membership number.
