After 20 years as a top international umpire it can be a hard jump over the line to being an umpire manager. This is made even more difficult when you’re coaching umpires you were on the field with less than a year ago, and Soledad talks about how this came up during her first appointment as a UM. Even more surprisingly, have a listen to how she feels umpires can make this transition easier for everyone involved.
Soledad's full UmpireAtHome episode is well worth the watch, sharing an incredible amount of information from her unique perspective.
#UmpireAtHome explores issues facing hockey umpires right now, and through discussion, explores umpiring skills and how to interpret the rules of hockey in a way that best serves the game.
