SACO Umpire Course

The nights are drawing in, the cricket season is nearly over, so what are you going to do on those long autumn and winter evenings?

Well, why not try the Umpires Course being run by the Shropshire Association of Cricket Officials (SACO).

It will help you get a better understanding of the game from the umpire’s point of view – and get you out of the house and talking cricket with fellow fans.

There will be courses staged in Shropshire over the winter which will help you become a qualified official ahead of the start of the new season in April.

There is a simple three-stage process you can follow.

Learn the Laws of Cricket online via the MCC websiteand obtain the Certificate of Completion.
Join the Stage One Course – Club Umpire – which will be held on Wednesday nights from 7.30-9.30pm from November 6 to December 11 at Allscott Sports & Social Club.
Then Join the Stage Two – League Umpire course on Wednesday nights again from 7.30-9.30pm at Allscott Sports & Social Club from February 5 to March 12.

The MCC online course is free and must be completed before you join Stage One of the process.

The cost is £30 per course, but you get a £20 discount if both are booked at the same time.
