The ECB have made the following courses free on line. They are ideal for anyone who is interested in scoring or umpiring, or just needs a refresher. The Basics of Umpiring would also be ideal for any parents who would like to better understand the laws of cricket.
The scoring and Basics of Umpiring course would also be ideal for colts who either wish to learn how to score, or to know the laws of the game better.
“Basics of Umpiring” – This course is aimed at club umpires who just need to know the key laws and basic field craft and those players who umpire 5 or 10 overs at the weekend.
“Umpire Stage One” This course is designed to give an overview of the basic Laws of the game and how to apply them and introduce the principles of field craft and match management. This course is an ideal introduction for new club umpires, a refresher for existing umpires and the first step for those who aspire to umpire at higher levels.
“Basics of Scoring” This course is designed to provide you with all the skills needed to start scoring. The course covers the basics of scoring a game of cricket such as scoring symbols, umpire signals, dismissals and gives a helpful overview of the Laws of the game.
We are always looking for more scorers and umpires at the club, so if any parents or colts take these webinars and wish to progress further please go back to your team manager, team captains, or reply to this email
