The EHF Umpiring Pathway brings our top 2 tier umpiring programmes (Umpires 4 Europe and Umpires Development Programme) and creates a definite link between them. The Pathway had its inaugural year last year, and served as the selection venue for UDP Group 11. This year, 35 umpires will participate and be considered for UDP Group 12!
Applications this year surpassed our expectations (and our capacity!), due to huge response we are over subscribed. This means not everyone could be accepted this time around, but the Education Committee will work to meet increasing demand in the coming years.
We are delighted with the success of the programme and delighted to announce the umpires accepted into the U4E programme (and the Pathway) for 2017:
