Junior Umpire Registration

At North Harbour Hockey we develop and appoint umpires Junior Umpires across both our Summer and Winter Competition formats. We appoint to our Primary and Intermediate competitions based at our hub, The National Hockey Centre and the Hibiscus Coast Primary Competition. 

There is coaching and development support provided for our Junior Umpires.  We encourage anyone from the age of Year 6 to Year 12 (or above) to get involved as an umpire in our local primary & intermediate competitions.

We welcome parents/siblings or supporters to pick up the whistle if their child is playing. Why not get involved with them!

We also believe umpiring is a fantastic learning opportunity for players to better understand the game, and why not earn pocket money in doing so! It is a great way to earn a bit of pocket money across the winter season. See payrates below in the Umpire Pathway section.

On this page you will find all the competitions that a Junior Umpire can be involved in and supporting resources.
