Our Umpires of the Month for June are Abbie Collett, Rebecca Lyon and Malcolm Lemaire!
For the month of June, we decided to split the Umpire of the Month award between three of our young umpires that successfully passed their community this spring season!
Abbie (left) has played field hockey for 8 and started umpiring in 2018, as she wanted to give back to the club and to understand the game better. As an umpire, she enjoys helping young players, such as our mites and minis, improve their skills. Abbie’s main goal this season was to pass her community assessment, and she has succeeded! She hopes to develop as an umpire as time goes on and play during the fall league.
Rebecca (centre) has been with the TCE field hockey club since the age of six – over 11 years of hockey! She currently plays on our fall division 1 women’s squad and the U18 Venom. Outside of the club she plays on a regional team and for Port Moody Secondary School. Rebecca decided to join the TCE umpiring squad to learn more about field hockey. In the future, Rebecca hopes to work towards her provincial umpire certification.
Last but not least, Malcolm (right) has been playing field hockey for over 9 years. Her currently plays for the Gobind Sarvar in Surrey. Like Abbie and Rebecca, he decided to become an umpire to better understand the game and to make money! As an official, he enjoys keeping the game safe and fair. Malcolm hopes to learn more as an umpire and upgrade his rating.
It has been rewarding to watch all three of you improve and become strong independent umpires this season. Congratulations on obtaining your community rating! We look forward to your achievements in the future.
