We run a number of varying courses depending on what is the best route for you. i.e. whether you just want knowledge of the laws, umpire casually or frequently for a club or progress to a league panel and beyond.
Details of the courses and the pathway can be found on our training page.
A flyer advertising the various courses is available from our Administration Officer or by clicking on the poster to the right of this page.
Also their on-line learning can be found here. Have a go.
All Scheduled Umpire and Scorer Courses have now been completed.
Please keep looking as more will be announced.
Stage 1 Umpires Course 2018-19 This is designed to give an overview of the basic Laws of the game, how to apply them and introduces the principles of field craft, man and match management. It gives the tools to enable a person to umpire matches at the basic recreational level where no independent umpires are appointed. The course length is 6-8 hours, there is no assessment or exam.
Stage 2 Umpires Course 2018-19 The stage 2 course is designed to give participants further knowledge and skills to enable them to become members of league panels and is available to anyone who has attended stage one or equivalent. The course complements the Stage 1 by looking beyond the basic laws, builds on field craft, man and management techniques and introduces the concept of working as a team with your colleague.
The course length is again 6-8 hours. It is intended that participants can take this immediately after completing Stage 1 or wait until the next training season. (Discount is given if they are taken immediately following on from Stage 1).
Courses are open to all: Male, Female, Young & the Not so Young.
It is strongly recommended that ALL prospective and practicing umpires undertake the new MCC On-Line Laws Course. This will help you on the Stage 1 & 2 Courses and will be needed for future development.
