Umpiring field hockey is fun, and a great way to earn some extra money and support the game and growth of the sport. Umpires are needed for youth, middle school, high school, college and club games as well as for USA Field Hockey Regional, National and Sanctioned Events. Umpires are the third team on the field and an important part of the USA Field Hockey Family.

USA Field Hockey umpire trainings and clinics are held throughout the country and online to assist field hockey enthusiasts beginning the exciting journey into umpiring. In guiding all levels of umpires to success on the pitch, these trainings and clinics supply learning tools and answer queries to support and grow umpiring in their region. Many state high school associations also offer umpire training for individuals interested in getting started. USA Field Hockey will help you jump into umpiring and direct you to your local field hockey community.
