The Northern Virginia Field Hockey league has put together some wonderful workshops to train new umpires as well as coaching workshops. The league is in need of new umpires. Grades 7-12 are welcome to attend the umpire training and if willing you will be put on the schedule for umpiring in the spring and fall seasons. I believe the pay ranges from $60-75 an hour. Please sign up below if you would like to partipate. The sessions are free.
Herndon Reston Youth Field Hockey will host pickup games and coaching/umpiring workshops on Sundays in February from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at Herndon High School - all sessions are outdoors on the turf.
Coaching and umpiring workshops are open to interested youth and adults.
Both new and experienced players in grades 7 through 12 are welcome to attend. Players can also participate in the coaching and umpiring workshops. During the sessions, we will integrate the coaching and umpiring workshops into the free-play time so everyone will get hands-on experience.
All sessions are free, but everyone must register at www.hryfh.org.
