0 Develop Umpiring within Essex

Within EHUA we are always looking for ways and opportunities to further develop and encourage umpiring within the County.

With a new season about to start we are we are looking to train and develop new umpire coaches. Is this something you would be interested in? 

Umpire coaches are vital in our ability to raise consistency and standards across the county.  There are umpires who have recently completed their Level 1 course who need some looking after and development and we also need to be able to help and assist those umpires have the desire to progress towards the County or Regional Pools and perhaps beyond. EHU has a proud reputation of developing umpires - one that we would like to continue in the years ahead. The more coaches we have the greater coverage we can provide. Even if you might only be available one or two Saturdays per month we would be delighted to hear from you.

Additionally for ALL active umpires irrespective of how long you have been umpiring we have an opportunity for you to participate in open and frank discussions, to receive some tips and advice and more importantly to ask the questions you may have always wanted to ask but have not done so. Come and join us at the Essex Cup and Rose Bowl over the weekend of 01 / 02 Sep (Redbridge Sports centre) Whilst the on-field umpires will be being coached during the day anyone who comes along can receive tips and advise on the side-lines

 

If you are interested in either or both of the above, please contact Paul Sexby directly. If you wish to discuss please call outside of working hours (07941390641), preferably after 19:30; alternatively please email EHumpdev@btinternet.com.
