This course is designed to give new umpires the key skills, knowledge and confidence to stand as an umpire in cricket. No prior experience of umpiring in cricket is required before attending the course.

Post course, learners will have the confidence and competence to go and umpire at appropriate levels within recreational cricket.

When is the course?

The course will take place on Saturday, 16th March between 9am and 4pm.

What will I be learning?

Whether you plan to support Junior Softball cricket through to adult cricket, this course will cover the following topics:

– Understanding the role of the umpire
– Gain a basic understanding of umpiring the game
– Answering appeals and the common methods of dismissal
– How to communicate effectively with all stakeholders in the game
– Judging whether or not it is safe to play

The course is split into classroom and practical learning, so we recommend learners to come dressed appropriately.
