Holcombe Umpiring Clinic

Starting on Monday 22 December, Holcombe are holding a weekly umpiring clinic in the clubhouse from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.  This is open to not just all club umpires but all club members.  Come along with any questions you have from the weekend’s games, any situations you are unsure about either as an umpire or player and any questions you have if you are thinking of having a go with the whistle.  The more we have there, the more we will get out of the sessions.  I will also have some in-game situations that we can discuss to see if we would all make or expect the same decisions.  If you can’t make the whole session, be there for as much as you are able.  This isn’t something where you will necessarily be told the answer straight away, more for open discussion so the gap between players and umpires and their expectations can be narrowed.  It will be very informal, just an opportunity to talk about umpiring decisions and situations.

Who is the clinic for?

Players or parents of junior members that want to better understand the rules
Any one of any age considering taking up umpiring
Anyone with any questions from their weekend games or past incidents

Where and when?

In the club house
Monday evenings
6:00pm to 7:30pm

I look forward to seeing you there.
