5 What do I do? Remember you are in control of the match – be confident in your rulings. By understanding the game and knowing the rules you will project confidence and be able to relax and enjoy the game. Above all, keep the players safe. Umpiring Teamwork and Positioning Both umpires need to work together and be presented as a team on the field. Communicate with eye contact and support each other with signals. In general play, ensure you monitor your dedicated area moving with your colleague in the same direction keeping the distance between you relatively constant. During a penalty corner, one umpire stands within the circle, with the coumpire moving into a position in which communication is easily maintained. playmedia Watch video below VIDEO - Mouse over for controls
