Every winter parents and older players look towards the summer season and towards cricket. Parents because their children are involved and players because of their lifetime love of their sport. Cricket, like so many sports needs people to officiate in matches. Sadly, we become disillusioned when bad decisions are made, yet we do little to remedy the situation.
Please accept this as a personal invitation and consider becoming part of the third team in a match, an Umpire.
You do not need to have played the game, but it is an advantage. The duties are not too onerous, but do require an element of dedication and fitness, and a desire to "Get it Right". There is also the opportunity (if that is your ambition and ability) to progress up the ladder to umpire at higher levels. Every Test Umpire started as a Club Umpire.
If you think umpiring might be for you, contact the SMCA Umpires Advisor Norm Harris at email@example.com or call Norm on 0433 505 900.
