16th AugCalling all HHUA Umpires who are also members of Higher Body Associations

Could all HHUA umpires who take appointments of any sort from SCHUA and / or NPUA please be aware that the new OMS system into which they are putting their availability and viewing their appointments cannot be accessed by the HHUA Appointments Secretaries, or indeed any county HUA Appointments Secretaries. This means that I currently cannot even see any of the published appointments for SCHUA or NPUA.
It is expected that any HHUA members who make themselves available to HHUA on a given date have already made themselves unavailable to any higher body on that date. This includes umpiring, developing / assessing umpires and acting as NPUA match officials.
Thank you in anticipation of your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

David Boyle, Hampshire HUA Saturday & Midweek Appointments Secretary

12th AugHHUA Umpires Gathering 5 September 2019 - 19:00 - Trojans

Ladies and Gentlemen,

As you are well aware the FIH introduced a new set of Rules of Hockey on 1 January 2019, but these have not been not implemented until the 2019-20 season for England Hockey.

HHUA has arranged an opportunity for ALL umpires, Higher Level, HHUA and Club Umpires to get together on 5 September 2010, in the briefing room at Trojans Hockey Club, starting at 19:00. This will include the briefing on the changes, but also some other information on interpretation of the new rules and other rules that have been interpreted poorly in the past.

This will also be an opportunity for all levels of Umpire to get together socially prior to the new season and exchange views and information.

Unfortunately, we are not able to provide catering that evening, but the bar will be open.

There is no need to let the Secretary know you are coming as it is assumed that everyone will be interested in this important evening.

If you have any questions on the rules prior to the planned evening, especially if you are umpiring early season friendlies, please contact the Umpire Development Manager, Steve Godwin, who will be more than happy to help you.

Phil Gibbs
Secretary

27th JulImproved Code for Club Websites

The interface function to provide a section to embed into club websites - showing league table, recent results and future fixtures for a specific team or teams has been improved.
The embedded information can now include the time and playing venue (along with a link to Google Maps) for fixtures in the future.
If you are already using the interface, go to the "Club Webmasters" section in the public area to get the new code to include in your club website.
Any existing code that has already been included in your website will continue to work unchanged (without the fixture time and venue for future fixtures).

26th JulWeb Site Structure Changes

Some changes have been made to the structure of the web site.
Some of the pages that have traditionally been available to anyone have been moved to within the personal area. This further protects data from access by people with no genuine reason to access it.
The pages affected are the Committees Page, Umpire Contact Details Page(s), Membership Page, Umpire Panels Page and Umpire Awards Page.
In addition, the Club Page that is in the public area showing all the information about a club has been modified so that it no longer shows any contact information for individuals. There is a duplicate of the page accessible from within the personal areas, which does show contact details.

The changes mean that, with the exception of a very few key contacts for the association(s), no personal contact information is now available to the public - it is only available to people who are properly registered as umpires or registered by clubs as club administrators or team officials.
In the past, there have been three settings that people can use for protecting their contact information (Public, Private or Secret). Because of the changes the Public category is now only really relevant for a few key association contacts and a new Internal category has been added. Any contact information marked as Internal can only be seen by genuinely registered users of the web site.
If your contact information needs to be seen by people from other clubs even if you are not due to play against them, you should ensure that your privacy setting for the relevant contact information is Internal rather than Private.

19th JunHHUA 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.

23rd MayManaging Club Email Addresses

The web system has been updated to allow club webmasters to manage the use of club email addresses for registered club contacts and administrators.
Where a contact has used a club email address as their log-in address (despite the instructions that this should not be done), the club webmaster can now change the log-in address for that contact to be their personal email address.
Where a club contact has registered a club email address to be used for all email communications regarding club matters, the club webmaster can remove the registration.
Both options allow club webmasters to fully update the system when positions within the club change, without the need to force other club members to log in (who may have left the club).
The options are all in the "Update Club Members (Contact and Administrators)" button in the "Recorded Club Members" section of the club administration area.
The options are only available to the designated club webmaster.
