GUWHC Umpiring Microphones
We did it
On 6th November 2018 we successfully raised £360 with 21 supporters in 42 days

We would like to buy our club umpires microphones to support them in their National League appointments and improve our umpiring ability.

New stretch target

Any extra money we raise will go towards the additional costs of competing in National League 1, including subsidising costs of coaching and pitch hire. 


The GUWHC 1XI was recently promoted to National League 1, the top league for women in Scottish Hockey. As a result, our umpires are having to step up to the challenge of faster paced games and higher levels of skill. In order to assist our umpires, the club would love to provide them with microphones. The use of microphones improves communication between both umpires as well as offering a practical coaching opportunity for aspiring umpires.

As a club of students, we have a high turn around each year with new girls joining and graduates leaving. The use of microphones will help fast track our young umpires in both knowledge and confidence as they umpire the highest standard of hockey in Scotland. Communication during these matches is key to a successful performance from the officiating team and microphones will make this as easy as possible.  

Any donations would be hugely appreciated! 

If we are fortunate enough to surpass our target, any remaining funds will go towards other expenses that the club has as a result of promotion. These additional costs include pitch hire and coaching fees.
