November 12th saw the second webinar in the U4E programme, where former Umpire and current World Panel Umpire Manager Henrik Ehlers shared his knowledge with 12 members of U4E. They were joined by EHF Education Committee Umpiring Working group members Jean Duncan and Brian Buckley. Henrik is also a member of the EHF Appointments Committee.
A good interactive session covered the ups and the downs of Henrik’s career and the way he held onto his self belief and performance levels after difficult situations.
It was an inspiring session for the young umpires with Henrik stressing that those who make it to the top are normally those umpires who are prepared to make sacrifices and show total commitment and determination
The European Hockey Federation would like to thank Henrik for giving his time and knowledge to our group.
The next U4E Webinar will take place November 24th, and will be led by World Panel umpire, Elena Eskina from Russia.
