25th OctNew Web System Functions

As many of you will have noticed, the next part of the 2018 system upgrade has been implemented.
The major changes are in the personal and club administration areas, where both of these areas are now fully mobile friendly (i.e. they adapt and work on small screen devices as well as traditional larger screen devices e.g. PCs). The club administration area is now accessed from your personal area.
You should note that the layout of all functions in these areas will be different depending on the screen size of the device you are using.
In addition, the order of items will vary depending on the screen size and the day. This is so that, on mobile phones, the things you are most likely to want on a match day appear nearer the top of the page.
If you are logging on via a device with a small screen, you will see that there is an option to have "continuous login". If you select this option your log in details will be stored on your phone and you will be able to log in in future just by clicking the quick log in bar at the top of the home pages.
If you are a club administrator, but are not your club webmaster, you have a new function in the club administration area to remove access rights that you do not need. This will temporarily remove them from your pages and will prompt your club webmaster to remove them permanently the next time they log in. This will help you remove the functions you will never need (particularly for teams that you are not involved with), in case your club webmaster has been over-generous with your options.
If you are a club webmaster, you also have new functions in the View/Update Administration Rights programs to remove all access for a person or to add all access for a person. This means you need fewer clicks to set up the correct access rights for each administrator.

25th OctNew Umpire Coach

Congratulations to Rob Crosson who was successfully assessed at the weekend and has received his Regional Umpire Coach accreditation from England Hockey. A great achievement.

30th SepRevised England Hockey Disrepute Process

Please note that England Hockey have introduced revised Disrepute Complaint Regulations with effect from 21 September 2018.
In summary, complaints of disrepute are now to be sent to the Head of Governance at England Hockey in the first instance. Please follow the link below for the revised copy of the Disrepute Complaint Regulations and the Code of Ethics & Behaviour Disrepute Incident Form.
Individuals are free to submit such complaints on their own behalf. However, if you are a member of BCHUA and you wish to submit a disrepute report in relation to events relating to regional hockey (which can be done if you wish to report what you consider to be disreputable behaviour which would not fall within your powers under the Red Card and MMO Regulations), we would strongly urge you to speak to a member of the BCHUA Executive Committee before so doing. The Executive will, of course, always support you should it believe that you have reasonable cause to submit such a report.
Finally, please note that Disrepute complaints may be submitted up to 14 days after any alleged incident. This means that you and the BCHUA Executive have time to ensure that your report is fully considered before being compiled and submitted in a structured way.
A copy of the new Disrepute form is also available on the website under 'Information and Downloads - Red Cards and Disrepute'
