Two more Umpiring courses scheduled.
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.
