Umpiring | Courses

Cricket is Australia’s favourite sport and millions enjoy the opportunity to play this great game and rise through its ranks.
Cricket needs good officials, whether it is to look after a junior game or go through the process of becoming a top level umpire and getting to the elite level.
It’s a thoroughly rewarding way to enjoy the game from the best seat in the house.
Accreditation, training and development of umpires are key factors in the recruitment and retention of players and officials as well as the development of the Australian cricket pathway.
