UMPIRES
2018

Umpire Education - Stage One and Stage Two

Umpire's Training is changing. All prospective umpires must first complete the online Laws of Cricket course available at laws.lords.org. This is totally free and must be completed before progressing to the next stage. WACO is offering Stage One (Club Umpire) and Stage Two (League Panel Umpire) training.

Both courses will be run at Worcestershire County Cricket Club at New Road, Worcester in the Players' Dining Room on the third floor of the Graeme Hick Pavilion. Coffee, tea and parking will be available.

Stage One - Sat 17-Feb-2018 and Sun 18-Feb-2018 from 9am to 1pm

Stage Two - Sat 24-Feb-2018 and Sun 25-Feb-2018 from 9am to 1pm

If you book both together, then you will save £20
