Umpiring school matches, often in front of audiences of critical parents, can be stressful for inexperienced teachers. Relatively recent rule changes have made this more challenging. This is a course to provide teachers with confidence that they can create a safe and fair environment. It will ensure that teachers are familiar with the Rules, but also how the school game should be managed and scored. This three-hour course consists of two hours of classroom-based learning, plus an hour of practical application. It also considers how the Rules can be applied sensitively to young players and lower ability games, to allow play to flow, and maximise player enjoyment and development.
