Umpires and ScorersWhile winter coaching is already in full swing, we also have the opportunity to run pre-season umpiring and scoring courses that will help people understand or keep up with the rules (which seem to change from season to season). This course may be handy for team managers and coaches at all levels as well as supporters helping their kids and called upon to umpire or any players who may be interested in furthering their knowledge.

We have not set specific days or times for these courses as yet, and will determine these according to the level of interest.

SCCA would appreciate you informing all your club members, parents and supporters and if anyone is keen ask them to contact the office before September 19th and we can get back to those participants who are keen about the most suitable times to hold the courses.
