ECB ACO Dorset Umpires Courses 2024

The ECB have produced a new umpiring course this year. Two of the new courses have been set up in Dorset and details can be seen below.

ECB Umpire Course Summary

The course is designed to give new umpires the key skills, knowledge and confidence to stand as an umpire in cricket. No prior experience of umpiring in cricket is required before attending the course.

Whether you plan to support Junior Softball cricket through to adult cricket, this course will cover the following topics:

- Understanding the role of the umpire

- Gain a basic understanding of umpiring the game

- Answering appeals and the common methods of dismissal

- How to communicate effectively with all stakeholders in the game

- Judging whether or not it is safe to play

The course is split into classroom and practical learning, so we recommend learners to come dressed appropriately.

Learners will be asked to complete some e-learning prior to attending the course, which will take no more than 90 minutes to complete in total. Pre-learning can be completed via multiple visits or in one go.


Learners must be 14 years of age at the time of the course.
