WorldHockey Umpiring Boost
The WorldHockey Umpiring Boost (WHUB) is an FIH project, jointly organised by the Umpiring Committee and the Development and Coaching Committee, whose overall objective is to help as many National Associations as possible to encourage, promote and develop Umpiring in their own country. The official period of the Boost ended on 31 December 2006, however it is intended that the project will be on-going with a lasting effect, and not just be seen as a one-off. This project recognises the twin needs of addressing the worldwide shortage of umpires and the requirement to maintain an improvement in umpiring standards.
In October 2004, the following documents were sent out to all National Associations:
1. WHUB Letter to National Associations sent October 2004
2. WHUB Information Sheet
3. WHUB Information Sheet Attachment
The WorldHockey Umpiring Boost was officially launched in Leipzig on 27 November 2004 at the FIH Congress:
