CSMOA – Education and Training – Pre season Courses 2023

We are launching our CSMOA 2023 Umpire education programme just now, and wanted to get in touch with a few of our contacts from the regional associations.

Regarding our umpire education courses, we have  three main courses running again this year, with the Introduction to Umpiring being of particular interest for members of your clubs who maybe have a few more years playing or those who want to improve their “player umpiring” in games where we cannot cover with official umpires. From there we also have our Stage 1 and Stage 2 courses with increasing detail. All of our courses this year are going to emphasise the changes to the Laws which became effective in October 2022, as well as further development sessions with our existing members closer to the season (although we haven’t launched these yet to our members).

Some useful information & links:

  • Introduction to Umpiring; 2 repeated sessions (to hopefully gain more coverage)
    • 2-hour evening Zoom workshop
    • Thursday 16th February 2023 – 7pm
    • Tuesday 21st February 2023 – 7pm
  • Stage 1
