Priya Puri is the TCE Umpire of the Month for October! In October she umpired the most games for the club, a total of 7 games in 3 weeks.
Since 2004, Priya has been involved with the Tri-City Eagles Field Hockey Club as a player, coach and umpire. She has umpired for over 7 years, and is one of our senior umpires. She extremely reliable and always steps up to umpire and mentor last minute games.
Priya became an umpire because she wanted to improve her understanding of field hockey and build confidence. “Becoming an umpire helped me become a better player and develop personal everyday skills,” says Priya.
Currently, Priya is in her 4th year of the Forestry Science program at UBC, where she will be writing her undergraduate thesis next year. She hopes to continue conducting research that will benefit the forestry industry of B.C. Her tip to developing umpires is to “trust your instincts, communicate, and have fun!”
Thanks for all your hard work and dedication Priya!
For the month of September we would like to award Tienna Northgraves as our Umpire of the Month!
Tienna has been with the Tri-City Eagles Field Hockey Club for over 16 years as a player, umpire and coach. She is one of the club’s most senior umpires, and is a reliable umpire mentor. Tienna became an umpire over eight years ago to get more involved in the sport that she loves. In addition, field hockey runs within the family as her sister and mother also playe and umpire for the club!
“I like being able to use my umpire knowledge as an asset when playing and coaching,” said Tienna, “right now I continue to play on the TCE Women’s Division 2 team and coach the Spring U18 Venom.”
Outside of the field hockey world Tienna is completing a Major in Psychology and a Minor in Criminology at Douglas College. In the future she hopes to work in the fields of harm reduction and counselling.
