The Umpiring Project 2022

As we prepare to return to cricket, research shows that good umpiring enhances our enjoyment ten-fold.  Two free online courses have been set up in an exciting joint venture.

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.  The course lasts about an hour.

Stage 1 Umpiring

This course is designed to give an overview of the basic laws of the game and how to apply them, introducing the principles of field craft and match management.  This course is ideal for new club umpires, as a refresher for existing umpires or as the first step for those who want to umpire at higher levels.  The course takes 3 hours max (less for the fast fingered).

Increase your own and your team mates' enjoyment of cricket.
Increase your knowledge of the game
