Umpires and Scorers Level 1 Supported Development and L1A Courses 2015

We will be running a Level 1 Supported Development programme for both our Umpires and Scorers. The table below details the dates of the workshops. Contact our Membership Services Officer for more information on how to book on to the programme.
You ideally should have passed an Umpires or Scorers Level 1 Assessment as appropriate. Please read our
Training Programme page for more detail.

This programme is designed to build on the knowledge of the law and techniques  combining it with match experience. It involves standing in a number of matches and undertaking self analysis, attendance at a number of workshops throughout the season and standing in selected matches with experienced colleagues.

Those taking part in this programme can move easily into the Level 1A scheme

Umpires Level 1 Course

Umpires and Scorers Beginners and Introductory Courses 2015
These courses are run on an “On Demand” basis where we need between 8 and 12 attendees. They are primarily aimed at supporters, parents and players who would like to know more about the game of cricket as either an umpire or scorer. No prior knowledge or experience is required. A typical course runs for 2 ½ hours

Contact our
BCOA Membership Services Officer for details on how you can set up one for your club or organisation..


We run a number of varying courses depending on what is the best route for you. i.e. whether you just want knowledge of the laws, umpire casually or frequently for a club or progress to a league panel and beyond.


A flyer advertising the various courses will be available from our BCOA Membership Services Officer.


Level 1 Scorers Courses 2015
The scorers course runs over two days. See dates below::

Refresher Workshops 2015
These workshops are run just before the start of the season and are intended for those who currently hold a Level 1 or higher qualification and enable the candidates to hone their skills in readiness for the “off”.

This season (2014) these were run as an integral part of our March and April monthly meetings.
