Umpire Development Pathway

Since September 2014 the England HA have created a new Umpire development Pathway.

We need to grow and nurture umpires in the county - so can clubs please actively try to identify candidates and get them onto courses. 

Courses:- Umpires can undertake an initial Level 1 Umpire award course. This is booked on line through the HA website. - 

Once this course has been complete newly qualified umpires can start umpiring. 

These matches are limited to some lower tier league fixtures ( see league handbook for qualifying tiers) and cup matches. 

After a minimum of 4 matches umpires can then be assessed by a Cornwall HA approved assessor to be become a club Umpire (assessed).  

Please contact the CHUA secretary if you are in a position to be assessed. 

It is an aspiration of the CHUA that all clubs will each have an assessor, currently we are building the 'suitably qualified people ' by the use of the HA Umpire develops pathway. 

The good news is that ten individuals from a number of different clubs within the county attended a Umpire developers course on June 4th 2015. So we are making progress. These developers will be able to coach and mentor both experienced and inexperienced umpires to allow for positive feedback in order to develop confidence and competence.These developers can also undertake assessments to tkae a Level 1 umpire unassessed to Level 1 Assessed status.

New online Umpire Education Module

Please take a look at where you’ll see a new online training module on decision communication is now available. 

The module is intended for new and inexperienced umpires and combines quite a number of video clips with some clear, concise guidance and explanation.  Following the successful completion of a short test, users can download a certificate of awareness.  This is a useful tool for all umpires so please publicise this facet as appropriate within your club. 

Rules education and testing is now available at this new site and there is also training resource for NPUA members here.
