Cricket Leinster encourages anyone interested in become an umpire next season to consider participating in the forthcoming training courses being run by the Leinster Cricket Umpires and Scorers Association (LCU&SA).
It’s Your Call – Umpire Education Stage One
This Course is designed to give you an overview of the basic Laws of the game and how to apply them and introduce the principles of field craft and match management. It will give you the tools to enable you to umpire matches at the basic recreational level where there are no independent umpires appointed.
It’s Your Call – Umpire Education Stage Two
This Course is designed to give you further knowledge and skills to enable you to become a member of a league panel and is available if you have attended and completed Stage One. It will complement that course by looking beyond the basic laws, build on field craft and match management techniques and introduce the concept of working, as a team, with a colleague.
