Learn about Umpiring

While we can help you get there, you don’t have to want to become an ICC Panel member to get tuition from the CACO.  We run a series of courses which start from the basics up to intensive courses which will qualify you as a Panel Umpire and beyond.

The ECB ACO Level 1 Advanced course ‘Understanding the Game’  – Autumn 2016

On this participative programme you will compliment your knowledge of the laws of the game with a better and up to date understanding of how they are applied and interpreted in practice from your, and others, experiences.

Level 1A is not intended to be a taught course but more facilitator-led.

As an ECB ACO member, you will learn how to appraise your own performance and evolve/improve field craft techniques that are covered more comprehensively on the Level 2 course, if that is your aim. It enhances the transition to level 2, updates your skill set and is a foundation for consistency in the umpiring of the team of two. The award is not exam dependant, but relies on assessment and professional discussion outcomes.

Qualification criteria: ACO member, Level 1 laws, a portfolio of completed recorded matches (2 assessed if possible).

Venue: Cornwall Cricket Centre, Truro College, Truro.

Date: 25 September & 9 October 2016,

Cost : £25,

Duration: 10:00 – 16:00.

We are also delighted to come along to clubs out of season with the new 90 minute ‘Argue with the Umpire’ interactive presentation which gives members and players of all ages an improved understanding of the Laws of Cricket.  It also provides an ideal opportunity for a club social ‘get-together’ during the winter months and some good takings at the bar.

However, for those who want to take their umpiring a bit more seriously we run a series of courses which will teach both the laws and how to Umpire and qualify you to officiate in any Club match in Cornwall.  These courses take place at Cornwall Cricket Centre in Truro.

The best overview of all the available courses is on the ECBACO website.
