To all clubs,
The 2018 season is approaching and we are in planning stage for all aspects of the year including umpires.
We are very lucky to have Stirling Sharpe from Hockey ACT coming to visit us on Saturday 17 March. He will be delivering some umpiring courses for us. Stirling is the Umpiring and Coaching Development Coordinator for HACT and he umpires at local, national and international level, so this is a great opportunity for our local umpires to learn from someone with a wealth of experience.
Course 1 – New and Beginner Umpires 2pm-3pm
Stirling will present a course to assist new and beginner umpires to better understand the role and how to do it.
Course 2 – Intermediate Umpires 3.30pm-4.30pm
If you have umpired for a while then this is the course for you.
Course 3 – Capital League Umpiring 5pm – 6pm
If you are aspiring to umpire at the highest level locally, we would like you to make the most of this opportunity to talk with Stirling about how Capital League will work this year from an Albury umpiring perspective.
Please canvass your members. If each club could please send at least 3 representatives to the first two courses, and one to the Capital League course. Of course more are welcome.
Could clubs please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 12 March with the names of their club members who will be coming along.
And can you please canvass your members for any new or returning umpires who would like to be on the umpire email list for this year and send their names to email@example.com.
Remember that without umpires we do not have a game.
