Take an Umpiring Course

Even if you have no intention of becoming a regular umpire in your post-playing adult years, you should take an umpiring course at the earliest opportunity. There are two reasons for this. The first is that you will almost certainly be required to umpire your own matches at some stage in your playing career. The second is that the best way to learn all you can about the laws of the game is through an umpiring course.

Bad officials spoil most games, but worse, biased or ignorant umpires can completely ruin a game of cricket. Don’t allow yourself, while umpiring in your own match, to be caught out by ignorance of the laws when required to make a decision.
