Umpiring

Umpires are such an incredibly important part of our sport, so we make their development one of our top priorities

Elite Level Umpiring

Not only do we help develop elite players, but we also help develop elite level umpires as well.  Jim Unkles is a current FIH badged International Umpire and we have many umpires, both male and female, that not only umpire at Premier League level but at Nationals as well, with many of them having come through our Junior Umpire Development Program.


Junior Umpire Development

Hockey Victoria requires each junior club to develop junior umpires as part of the Umpire Development Program. The Club strongly supports this program and encourages all junior players to better understand the Rules of Hockey.

All junior umpires are given training during the season and are supported to attain official Hockey Victoria accreditation. The umpires are paid for each game dependent on their experience, the difficulty of the game and their level of accreditation.

Please contact the Club Umpire & Officiating Director, Daryl Clarke, if you have any queries or your children are interested in umpiring this year.

The heart and soul of Camberwell Hockey Club

Being such a large successful club is not possible without the significant effort put in by our vast range of volunteers.  Everything from coaches to team managers, umpires, age group coordinators, administrators, committee members, and game day help are all done by volunteers and all contribute to making Camberwell Hockey Club the club it is. 


Coaching & Managing

Our coaches are responsible for planning and running weekly training sessions and running the bench and coaching the team on game day.  They are ably supported by our team managers who work on the administration of the team, responsible for entering scores, paying umpires on the day, team communications etc.

Age Group Coordination

For our juniors each age group has their own coordinator who is responsible for overseeing their group.  They provide contact details of all players to team managers, forward relevant information from the club to team managers for distribution to players and help manage the training roster of their age group between our two grounds.

Gameday Activities

On game day there are a few activities that need to be done by volunteers at our home grounds, be it running the scoreboard, helping with the Tech bench for Premier League games, providing half time refreshments for your team, or manning the BBQ or cake stall on one of our many Club Days.  

Admin - Committee & Board

Each section has their own Committee that usually meets once a month to discuss and plan all things section related.  Committee members are given roles for the year from communications for your section, social and fundraising, registrar, treasurer, team liaison, etc.  Our Board Members are nominated and elected at our AGM every November.
