UDP Group 12 selection 2018-2020


We are delighted to let you know of the outcome for the UDP Group 12 selection 2018-2020.  It is very encouraging for the EHF to see that there are so many young umpires in Europe who are looking to learn, improve and further their umpiring careers.


Following the selection process by the EHF Education Committee Umpires Working Group, we are delighted to announce that a total of 6 participants have been chosen to take part in the Umpire Development Programme (UDP) 2018 to 2020, Group 12.


Name Country
Germain Boutte Belgium
Nikita Yuklyaevskikh Russia
Veronika Fechter Austria
Teresa Lipsky Germany
Alistair Munro Scotland
Petr Vetrovsky Czech Republic


The mentors for this group, and the new UDP lead, will be announced shortly, as will the details for the launch weekend. 


Inez Cooper Chair of the EHF Education Committee wished  “…good luck and a lot of fun with your umpiring. We hope all umpires are having a great experience on the U4E Programme.  For those who may be disappointed at missing out on selection for UDP this year, there will be another opportunity next year!  There is now no restriction on the number of years for which umpires can apply to U4E and be part of the EHF Umpiring Pathway.”
