Our Umpires of the Month for May are Kinley Yu, Saylor Kuefler and Hope Scheibal!
For May, we couldn’t decide on a single umpire of the month, so we decided to settle for three of our newest umpires who have showed plenty of progress this season.
Kinley (left) has been playing field hockey for five years for her school and our spring league teams. She decided to give umpiring a try to learn a new skill. So far, Kinley likes using her whistle and enjoys helping mite and mini players to learn the rules.
Like Kinley, Saylor (middle) plays field hockey for her school and our spring league teams. She also has participated in Shiv’s Coaching Academy. After eight years of playing the game, she will be trying out for one of our Fall Women’s teams! Saylor picked up the whistle this year because she wanted to develop respect and a greater understanding for field hockey. She enjoys umpiring because it allows her to feel that she is contributing to the community.
Last but not least… Hope (right) has been playing field hockey for seven years with the Tri-City Eagles Field Hockey Club. Within the last year, she has joined the teams for Centennial High School, Polar Bears and Fall Women’s league. Hope always wanted to give umpiring a go, but didn’t have time until this year. As an umpire, she loves watching younger players develop their skills.
All three umpires hope to pass their community assessment soon. Hope also expressed that she’d like to earn more money to buy a new pair of turf shoes.
Fantastic work so far this season ladies! Our club is so lucky to have keen young umpires such as yourselves. You are an inspiration to other field hockey players to become an umpire. Good luck getting your community assessments (and those turf shoes).
It’s the end of the Spring Junior Season and time to return your uniform!! Please ensure if has been washed and is ready for storage and redistribution next Spring.
Please note if your uniform is not returned, your deposit cheque will cashed by June 30th, 2019.
See you at the field!
Halle Osmond is our Umpire of the Month for April!
Halle has played with the Tri-City Eagles Field Hockey Club for 9 years. She became an umpire 3 years ago because she wanted to understand the game better. Since then, she has become one of our most involved upcoming younger umpires, officiating games in the Spring and Fall seasons. Halle is currently mentoring our younger umpires and is working towards upgrading to a provincial umpire rating. She enjoys umpiring because she can see the game from a different perspective.
Aside from umpiring, Halle plays for the Spring U17/18 Raptors and for our Fall Division 3 team. She is also a co-captain on the field hockey team at Gleneagle Secondary School, where she will be starting her senior year in September 2019.
Thanks for your dedication Halle! You’re a role model to the younger umpires that you mentor. Keep up the awesome work!
