How to Use Who’s the Umpire
Once registered, the initial information you will need to enter into WtU is your availability, done by editing your calendar. The default position is that you are not available on any date, so you need to tick those dates that you are free to accept an appointment. Please note that appointments will not be made more than 2 months in advance of a fixture, so you need to ensure that your calendar is always up-to-date for this period.
In your details you can indicate if you want to receive appointments, etc. via text instead of email. However be aware that every text costs the Association money.
Bank Details
Please contact WACO Treasurer
Using either internet banking or by going to your own bank, please set up a Standing Order to the Bank Details above for £10 to transfer at the beginning of September every year (the exact date is up to you to suit your finances).
Any person who was previously a member of the Association and wishes to rejoin the Association after letting their membership lapse will be required to pay a rejoining fee of £10.
Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)
The whole of the DBS system is now online and works through emails - so if your DBS is running out, you should get a notification approximately 2 months before expiry and provided you have not been through the online system (your last application was done on paper), you need to contact David Thurbon, David Gower, Nick Andrew or Dennis Pyke. They will initiate a new application which will result in you receiving an email and a link for which you will have to create a user name and password access, complete the application online and submit to the system. Suggest you use Passport, Driving Licence and a favourite is birth certificate plus your National Insurance No. Once submitted, your documents have to be verified online by one of the four or this can be done by any of the coaching team on floor 2 at New Road. Once verified, it takes about 14 working days to come through. Once you are on the system, you will get an annual email and provided nothing has changed, your DBS will roll on by a year, so you will not get the hard copy again.
Insignia Sales
Please note that following the Association's change to an ACO at the 2014 AGM, it is intended to create a new logo and branding. Consideration is also being given to the production of WACO leisurewear. Hence no insignia items are being offered at present. Any progress in this area will be reported in the Latest News page.
