Reminder: Umpiring Course.


As a follow up to the notice posted on 20 March 2018, members are reminded of the Umpiring Course to be held in Mpumalanga.

One of the most important aspects of a well run championship is the consistency and standard of umpiring.

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 next two courses shall be done as follows:
MPUMALANGA
Date 12 May 2018
Time 08h00 - 16h00
Venue HTS Witbank, Beyers Street, Die Heuwel, Emalahleni
Fee R300 per registered member (catering included)
Entry date 7 May 2018

The course shall include:
* Ethics
* Background to MSSA's systems
* Roles of the different umpires
* Entry
* Basic rules to the games
* Pairings
* 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.
