TO PLAY CRICKET IS EASY. TO UNDERSTAND THE GAME TAKES TIME.
UMPIRING COURSE 2012
The Year 9 and 10 SSC group completed a two week umpiring course run by Neil Poulton from SACA on Monday 3rd and Monday 17th September. The first week covered a range of theoretical topics including expectations of umpires and the laws of cricket. In the second session the class practised umpire positioning and were given the opportunity to make LBW decisions.
