Sunday 9 March 2014
Stoolball England is running umpiring and scoring courses on 6 April 2014 (just £5), and Level 1 coaching courses on 13 and 27 April 2014 (£35). Level 2 coaching will be available later in the year.
Umpires’ and scorers’ courses
These courses will run side-by-side on 6 April 2014 from 10am-1pm at The Holbrook Club, North Heath Lane, Horsham, RH12 5PJ. Registration is at 9.30am and each course costs just £5. Please contact Kay Price on 01403 252419 or kay@… to register.
The format of the course is as follows:
- 10-11am the trainee umpires and scorers will be separated and tutored on their respective roles in the game
- 11am-12 noon: there will be a game outside. Each trainee umpire will be coached on their roles standing both at square leg and as the bowler’s umpire. Scorers will score all the way through with help and guidance from their tutor.
- 12-1pm general question and answer session with both sets of trainees.
Please bring appropriate writing materials and, for those doing the umpires’ course, you will need counters or coins.
Level 1 coaching
Become a Level 1 qualified stoolball coach with our course on 13 April 2014. Registration will be at 9.30am and the course will run from 10am-4pm with a break for lunch. The cost is £35. The venue is yet to be confirmed but is likely to be in central Sussex or southern Surrey. If there is sufficient demand we may run a second course on 27 April 2014.
