|Without the dedication of MSSA's umpires, events would not run smoothly.|
Once having passed the MSSA course is a Registered Player allowed to umpire at a MSSA Regional, Provincial, and/or National Championship.
It is through umpiring in MSSA championships that Registered Players make themselves eligible for selection by MSSA's Management Board for training at IESF, FMJD, and IWF Courses.
In the case of IESF, only once a Registered Player has successfully completed IESF's comprehensive course, then, and only then, may such Registered Player be considered to referee at IESF's prestigious World Championships.
It should be noted that a Registered Player who is selected to umpire and/or referee in an international event also earns Protea Colours.
Thus MSSA continues to create upward ladders for all its Registered Players and allows athletes to maintain involvement in this exciting and developing field even when their days of playing competitively are over.
