A number of Umpire Courses will be held in the Autumn. Please see the message below from Nick Hall, County Education Officer for Umpires, that includes details of dates and venues and how to take part.

Dear All,

I am pleased to be able to provide information regarding Umpires courses to be held by HACO (Herts Association of Cricket Officials).

Participants have the opportunity of attending the ECB ACO ‘It’s your Call Stage 1’ and ‘It’s your Call Stage 2’ courses at venues across the county as follows:

Stage 1 – Hertford CC, Monday October 1st to Monday November 5th (4 evenings)
Stage 2 – Hertford CC, Monday November to 19th Monday December 10th (4 evenings)
Stage 1 – Kings Langley CC, Wednesday October 3rd to Wednesday October 24th (4 evenings)
Stage 2 – Kings Langley CC, Wednesday November 7th to Wednesday November 28th (4 evenings)
Stage 1 – Radlett CC, Sunday November 18th (1 day)
Stage 2 – Radlett CC, Sunday November 25th (1 day)

Registration and payment for courses is via the ECB Website https://www.ecb.co.uk>upcoming-courses (courses are listed in County order).

There is a brief description for each course within the details. For those of you who are already members of the ECB ACO there is an overview of the new courses on Page 24 of the latest edition of the magazine. Information about joining the ECB ACO can be found in the S1/S2 course Notebook. It is anticipated that most participants will follow a Stage 2 course immediately after a Stage 1 course and there is a discount for doing this.

Please note that the above courses will only run if there are sufficient numbers, so if you are aware of others who may wish to participate please encourage them to register.

If you need further clarification please contact me via email ( [email protected]) or phone (07929 562554).

HACO will also be holding similar courses in the Spring of 2019. Details will be published later.

Best Regards
Nick Hall (County Education Officer for Umpires)
