Staff

FHC’s Masters program wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for the hard work of our coaches, managers and support staff. Thank you for your time and commitment to this important program.

We also appreciate our regionally and nationally rated umpires who represent FHC so well internationally.   As of 2020, any umpires wishing to umpire at Master’s World Cups must be nominated by FHC.  See here for more details.
