Scorer and Umpire Courses

Scorer and Umpire Courses As you might be aware the MCC has introduced a new set of Laws which will be in effect for the coming season. At the same time the ECB Association of Cricket Officials (ECBACO) has introduced a new set of courses which are now focussed on umpiring skills and much less on the Laws.

Officials Courses 2016-2017

Delivered by Hertfordshire Association of Cricket Officials Whilst cricket is uppermost in our minds, the Hertfordshire Association of Cricket Officials (HACO) have announced the winter programme of Umpires and Scorers courses. The Hertfordshire Cricket Network recognises that Officiating is such a fundamental & important part of our game at whatever version or level of the cricket is being participated in and prides itself in the support and opportunities, provided through HACO, that are on offer for the current officials and also those who are looking to make the move into the field. As well as supporting individuals with their own aspirations of progressing through to officiating, we recognise the requirements of our leagues regarding match officials. We are sure you will agree that the greater number of qualified and competent officials we have, the more enjoyable cricket will become. Further information regarding Hertfordshire Association of Cricket Officials, please check out the website ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Umpires Finished playing the game? Still want to stay involved? Then why not take up umpiring and still see all the action in the middle! The Herts Association of Cricket Officials run courses throughout the close season to ensure we have a constant flow of new and up skilled umpires to support the game. Once qualified, become a panel umpire, and stand in Saracens Hertfordshire Premier Cricket League matches or just support your local cricket club by umpiring on a weekend. Umpire Introductory Course This is a new, short, standalone course aimed at any cricket enthusiast who is interested in umpiring. It is a 4 hour course spread over 2 evenings. It is soon expected to become a minimum preferred requirement for umpires in the Saracens Hertfordshire Premier Cricket League divisions [...]

Umpiring Courses This Winter

The league is running umpiring courses again this winter. If you're interested please email the course leaders. There will be courses at four venues around the county running from late January or early February and details are set out below.  In addition it is intended to run a weekend course before next season for anyone interested but unable to commit to the evening courses. You will know that the League has been encouraging clubs to increase the number of qualified umpires and you will be aware of the match rules with regard to umpires in Divisions 3 to 6.  Over the last four years the response has been encouraging and I would like your support in maintaining the good level of response. May I ask you to make every effort to encourage fellow club members to put themselves forward for one of the training courses.  The feedback from those who attend is very positive and clearly they are of benefit both to our clubs and the League as a whole. Baldock Town CC - commencing on Tuesday 28nd January at 8.00pm Course leader - [email protected] Hertford CC - commencing on Monday 27th January at 7.30pm Course leader - [email protected] Radlett CC – commencing on Tuesday 11th February at 8.00pm Course leader - [email protected] Watford Town CC - commencing on Wednesday 29th January at 8.00pm Course leader - [email protected]
