Officiating Advisory Group

The Role of the OAG

The OAG acts as an advisory group for Hockey WA, to develop strategies and initiatives to develop and promote officials at all levels within Western Australia.  This includes providing education and training opportunities and feedback, offering mentoring for officials and regional associations to continue develop umpires and technical officers in WA and making appointments to games and tournaments locally and nationally.

Key focus areas include recruitment, training and retention of officials, and encouraging clubs to support opportunities for members, especially juniors interested in taking up umpiring.

If you are interested in becoming an umpire or technical official, please contact Hockey WA to have a member of the OAG assist you with your queries.
