Welcome to Redditch Hockey Club.

We are a club with a long proud history and a firm focus on the future. We are trying to expand as a club and are looking for players, coaches and umpires of all ages and standards to help move the hockey club forward in these exciting times. The club boasts excellent facilities with on-site pitch, changing rooms and club house, all recently developed. Redditch Hockey Club also proudly holds the Sport England Clubmark accreditation which is aligned with the England Hockey ClubsFirst award and proves this is an excellent environment for juniors.

We are a very social and friendly club and welcome all new members so if you are interested in joining please feel free to contact the club secretary for more details or just turn up to one of the training sessions.
We look forward to seeing you soon!

All league playing members are invited to this session to discuss umpiring with a panel of MRHUA umpires including Redditch’s very own umpiring legend Ash Freeman.
The theme of the evening will be “Back to basic Umpiring” and will cover the following points:- 

1. Arrival & meet your colleague         

2. Position

3. Trigger points and reacting appropriately to the first opportunity and early to prevent escalation.

4. Captains 

5. Dissent 

6. Whistle tone, use and variation.

7. Use of control cards, how to issue, when and combined with whistle tone.

8. Timing of suspensions, umpire nearest to the subs bench.

9. Location of subs.

10. Tone of speech and closed statements rather than an open statements.
