Junior Umpire

At North Harbour we develop and appoint umpires to our Primary and Intermediate competitions based at our hub, The National Hockey Centre and at the Hibiscus Coast Silverdale turf.

We encourage anyone from the age of Year 5 to Year 12 (or above) to get involved as an umpire. We welcome parents/siblings or supporters to also pick up the whistle if they are around.
