MSSA's umpiring course - 2 March 2019.

MSSA umpires (in their stylish orange shirts) manning the score-boards.
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 2019.

Such umpiring courses around the country shall ensure that umpires are certified and are fully aware of their duties and responsibilities in all the disciplines (Board gaming, Esports, Wargames).

It is important to also note that MSSA will only consider Registered Players who are certified as National Umpires for upward advancement apropos being recommended for training as an international referee by International Esports Federation (IESF).

Also, MSSA expects registered players who again intend to stand for team selection to 'put back', by becoming umpires. This way a culture of 'giving' is created, and a transference of knowledge is enabled.

The first such course shall be done as follows:

Date: 2 March 2019
Time: 9H00 - 18H00
Cost: R600.00 per Registered Player if not a National Squad member, R400.00 per Registered Player if a member of a National Squad.
Venue: Curro Durbanville, 1 Memento Drive, Sonstraal Heights, Durbanville, 7550
RSVP: 24 February 2019

The cost will include morning and afternoon tea, and lunch.

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.
