Knowledge Gained At Intro To Umpiring Clinic

Thank you to everyone that attended our Intro To Umpiring clinic on Monday night.

The session was presented by Reece Young, an umpire with many years experience.

Reece took participants through the basics of umpiring, including how to

position yourself to best see the play, how to manage the game and players, and how to address player behaviour.

The night also saw the launch of our Junior Umpire Academy. An expression of interest was sort from players to become an umpire and also for those experienced umpires to become mentors. If you are interested in becoming an umpire or a mentor please complete the relevant form below:
