Although primarily aimed at the scoring community an innovative CPD programme has been launched by Sue Drinkwater, the ECB ACO Scorers Education Manager , using a You Tube Channel. This channel is designed to help cricket scorers learn new skills and practice their craft in the closed season.
Please note, any advice given on this channel comes personally from Sue as an experienced cricket scorer.
When possible live scoring sessions will be offered to help scorers who cannot get to a match achieve some practice while short 'how to' videos will be provided for self help.
Why is this channel called RunWktsOvers? Hint : take a look at MCC Laws of Cricket - Law 3 and see what a scorer should be recording.
Many of the sessions are of great benefit to our umpiring partners, particular the DL & DLS sessions. For those VERY keen there is the opportunity to score the 2017 T20 Blast Final on line (No you will not be transported back in time).
The South Central Region of the ACO, of which Berkshire is a member, has initiated a CPD programme to run through the 2020 season to enable our officials to exercise their minds whether working by themselves or in teams using various technologies like the telephone, WhatsApp, Zoom etc.
If you have any ideas please contact your CSO, CEO or CDO so they can discuss them with their Regional counterpart. To go to the umpire CPD page press this button
