All Brisbane Hockey Association (BHA) umpires are paid for by the BHA.  Valley Hockey Club Inc. therefore does not offer additional payments to umpires for boys or men's games.


All Clubs affiliated with the Brisbane Women’s Hockey Association (BWHA) have an obligation to provide appropriately skilled umpires at all levels in which the Club fields teams, at the cost of each individual Club.  In 2019 we fielded 23 womens/girls teams and as such, needed 23 umpires each week capable of umpiring U7 juniors to Division 1 senior games.  2020 will be a similar scenario.


$50.00 Fee Discount for Volunteer Umpires


We will happily accept help from Beginner Umpires right up to the highest level Badged Umpires.  We will be sure to place each umpire on a game that suits each individual, and if you are a beginner umpire, please rest assured that we will provide you with a mentor to walk you through every step.  Volunteers who wish to receive their $50.00 Fee Discount will be required to umpire 2 games.  Please contact Lisa Hollis for allocations. (the Volunteer Discount is not applicable to Masters and Senior Grass players as these teams provide their own umpires).

Summary of Umpire Payments


You must umpire at least 5 games to qualify for payment by Valley Hockey Club (womens and girls divisions).  Once you umpire your 6th game then all games, including your first five games, will be paid as follows:


·           Badged Umpires (Turf) $20.00 per game.

·           Badged Umpires (Junior Grass) $10.00 per game.

·           An Umpire Mentor (must be badged) $10.00 per game.

·           If a Badged Umpire is carrying out their 2 Volunteer Fee Discount games then they will not be paid for those games, nor will those games count towards their first 5 games to qualify for payment. (these games can be listed with BWHA for any payments made by BWHA)

·           Non-badged Umpires (at any level) will not be entitled to payment however they will be mentored, supported and encouraged by the Club to get their Community Badge.

·           Beginner Umpires who require a Mentor will not be paid (as the Mentor is paid for that game), except that they can qualify for the $50.00 Fee Discount by umpiring 2 games with their Mentor.


Please note that BWHA also pays a small fee to all badged umpires on Senior Grass, Junior Turf, Senior Turf and Masters games.  Payment is made according to the badge level held.  Badged umpires are entirely responsible for making their own application to BWHA for any umpire payments that may be offered by BWHA.  See BWHA website for more information
