EH Cup Yorkshire : U16 Boys & Girls New Date & Venue For The Finals
yhalogoblue.jpgEH Cup Yorkshire: U16 Boys & Girls New Date & Venue For The Finals
We plan to play the EH Cup Yorkshire Finals for the U16 Boys & Girls at BEN RHYDDING HC on Sunday 4th February. Not the ideal solution but the best option we have.
Below new timing for the Cup games.
The YYHL U16 Boys Order of Play has been adjusted as the four teams in the Cup final are not participating in the League
As a result there is some adjustment to venues used by the YYHL U16 Boys and some team movement.
CUP FINAL UMPIRES: We hope that YHUA  will be able to help us once again on this rearranged date but we may need to provide our own UMPIRES to officiate these games.
We will let you know if YHUA can supply umpires. If not each team will need to bring a suitably qualified and experienced Umpire with them. We will confirm any Umpire support from the YHUA if and when we get it.
Timing for the Cup Competition: Sunday 4th February @ Ben Rhydding HC
11.00 U16 Boys Semi Finals: City of York v Sheffield Hallam and Harrogate v Wakefield
12.00 U16 Girls Semi Finals: Wakefield v Ben Rhydding and Doncaster v Harrogate
13.00 U16 Boys Final & 3 v 4 Play Offs: Winners of SF1 v Winner of SF2 & Loser of SF1 v Loser of SF2
14.00: U16 Girls Final & 3 v 4 Play Offs: Winners of SF1 v Winner of SF2 & Loser of SF1 v Loser of SF2

YHA Men's League Postponed Matches
yhalogoblue.jpgYHA Men's League Postponed Matches
Please not that this is the present situation regarding postponed fixtures.
Sat 25 November - these had all to be rearranged by 16/17 December
02 December - these again had to be rearranged by 16/17 December, with exceptions if you liaised with your Div Rep and a date was agreed.
09 December - these were moved en bloc due to the 75% or more rule to the 17 Feb slip date.  Those matches that had been rearranged to that date have to be moved earlier - not later - in the season. 
Matches cancelled on 10 December had to be played by 16/17 December unless agreed otherwise with your Div Reps.
16/17 December – these may now be replayed by Sun 28 January.

The situation now is that ALL postponed matches must be played by Sun 28 January.  Any outstanding matches after that date from the 4 weekends will be investigated.  You must liaise with your Div Rep at all times.

Just a few points:
  • A player from the club should check the pitch rather than relying on Sports Centre Staff/Groundsman.  After all, they won't be on the receiving end of a lifted ball and/or other possible injuries.
  • The pitch must be fully fit to use at the scheduled start time.
  • Please read 5.3(a) and 6.10.2(a)(b)(c)(f)(g)(h).  Please may I ask you to ensure your umpires are fully aware of these rules, and that captains are too?  Umpires must not be selective in which parts of the rules are applied.
  • Away teams please note -  if you have asked for the home team to provide 2 umpires they have total control as to whether the pitch is fit or not and you have no say in it.
  • Please read 6.10.1(g), 6.12(c)(d)
  • If you have to rearrange matches for Sundays as per the rules, please note 7.7(a)(b)(c) regarding representative matches.  If you have 2 or more junior players playing representative hockey, then these players must be identified to the Div Reps along with the representative match.  Clubs who have junior matches on Sundays must forfeit the match if they wish their juniors to play for their own age groups and cannot field a Men’s League  team.  Rule 6.10.1(g) regarding rearrangements still applies.

Level 1 Umpire Assessments
yhua.gifLevel 1 Umpire Assessments
In my role as YHUA Coaching Co-ordinator/Chief Coach, I have written separate Protocols for Umpires, Coaches and Level 1 Assessors. I believe these Protocols, plus the three present up-to-date EH documents regarding the L1 Assessment process, would be very useful for all YHA Clubs and their members.

All the documents are already on the YHUA website, and will soon also be on the YHA website. It is important, however, that your club has first-hand knowledge of this information because of the role you have in your Club. I'm sure you will be the first 'port of call' to answer any questions on the topics included in the 6 documents.

If you have any questions on anything included in the documents, please feel free to contact me. My details are on the YHUA website and in the YHA Handbook.
Hopefully, the information will be useful to everybody connected with hockey in Yorkshire, whether they are a player, manager, coach(player/umpire), assessor or umpire.

Kind regards

eh_shield_blue.jpgEngland Hockey Centralised Calendar 2018-19
www.englandhockey.co.uk 20.12.2017
The first draft of the 2018/19 Priority Centralised Calendar is now available. Click here to download.
It is important to note that the elite player activity is highly likely to change following confirmation of the final details of the new international Hockey Pro League due to start in January 2019. 
In addition, consultation on the future domestic structure continues and as such the final Investec Women’s Hockey League, Men’s Hockey League and Jaffa Super 6s dates will be confirmed later than usual.
Consultation on the future domestic structure is ongoing after England Hockey’s board decision to delay the immediate implementation of any changes to the league structure (see here). Meetings have been held with the National and Regional Umpiring bodies, the Regional Leagues are meeting early in the New Year and consultation with clubs continues.
The final version of the calendar will be disseminated in March 2018.
To feedback on the calendar please use the following survey by clicking here.
If you have any queries about the first draft of the 2018/19 Priority Centralised Calendar, please get in touch with the England Hockey Competitions team on -email- or 01628 897506. 
Please note: The England Hockey Offices shut between Friday 22 December and Tuesday 2 January.
