Umpire Level 1A (Panel Umpire)

This course enables ECB ACO members qualified at Umpire Level 1 to acquire the essential skills of fieldcraft, match management, man management and self-reflection. An intention to progress to higher levels of cricket is not required; just a desire to be the best you can be at whatever level you choose to officiate.

Unlike Level 1, the classroom sessions in the first part of the course are not taught, but are more akin to seminars, still led by specially trained tutors who encourage you and your fellow students to build upon your collective knowledge and experiences to develop your skills further. At West Surrey, the classroom course occurs over six Wednesday evenings in November and December.

These classroom sessions are supplemented during the subsequent playing season by observations of your on-field performances followed by constructive, written feedback intended to identify points for further development. In Surrey, the custom has been for the first observation to be made by a trained assessor standing in a match as your colleague. Where this happens, no charge is made for the observation / feedback. The second observation is conducted from the boundary.

The classroom course costs £40 (all ages) and the boundary observation/feedback costs £35.

Applications for next available course, in November-December 2017, are now invited.
