Umpiring affects every aspect of a championship, and since Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) is highly cognisant of such, MSSA shall be holding a number of umpires' courses during 2018.
Such umpiring courses around the country shall ensure that umpires are certified and are fully aware of their duties and responsibilities.
The dates of such courses are as follows:
- 7 April 2018 - Free State
- 12 May 2018 - Mpumalanga
Details of the venue will be provided shortly.
The cost will include morning and afternoon tea, and lunch.
The course shall include:
- Background to MSSA's systems
- Roles of the different umpires
- Basic rules to the games
- Data capturing of results
- How results are further used
At the end, a test will be given, and those that pass will be accredited as umpires.
Any Registered Player who is 18 or older may register for such course through their member club.
