Uniforms are distinctive clothing worn by the members of the same organization.  When you have on your umpire kit you are representing the Third Team, specifically the JPH Third Team.  Professionalism in our appearance is expected as the premier youth field hockey league in the USA. The standard JPH umpire uniform is as follows:  

  • Black kilt, tall black socks
  • Black slacks
  • USAFH Pink/Raspberry, USAFH Yellow, matching tops
  • This standard uniform is required for any umpire participating in or aspiring to any JPH Elite event
  • Refusal to adhere to the uniform policy may result in dismissal and removal from future appointments

NOTE: Umpires are permitted to wear black shorts with tall black socks so long as they still maintain a professional appearance, however this will preclude selection to Elite.
