ECB ACO Introduction to Umpiring Course
Are you looking to enter the world of cricket umpiring? Whether you're a parent/teacher umpiring kids or school teams, a current player who does his/her 10 over stint, or you're looking more seriously at starting your umpiring career - we have the course for you!
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. 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 it is safe to play
This will give you the confidence and competence to go and umpire at appropriate levels within recreational cricket. The cost of this course is £70.00 - this covers the cost of the course, one year's free membership of the ECB ACO (including umpire insurance) and a voucher for a free ECB ACO polo shirt.
We have a course planned for the 6th April at Hereford Cathedral School 9.30-4.00pm
