JR Umpire Training Program

This program is a great opportunity for 8th-12th graders! Wellesley Youth Field Hockey covers the cost!

Wellesley Youth Field Hockey will be training student umpires during our Spring youth league.  We will provide the online modules and on-the-field training for any high school student who wants to become a field hockey umpire.  Learning to be an umpire will expand your knowledge of the sport to make you a smarter player on the field.  It will also prepare you to officiate games in the summer and fall of this year.  Field Hockey officiating is a great way to make extra money and continue to enjoy the sport that we love.
