The TVCL has set up pre-season coaching courses in umpiring and scoring - please see an email from the chairman, Jeremy Davis, and details of all the dates and venues below. This is a good initiative from the TVCL to raise standards and club members are encouraged to support these events.
Dear Member Clubs,
Please find attached details of forthcoming League Umpires and Scorers Courses.
These courses form part of the education initiative we launched at the 2012 AGM and are run by OUR League, for OUR League, in collaboration with experts from our local ECB ACO County Boards.
Our objectives are:
1) to improve the quality of umpiring within the TVCL in matches where panel umpires are not provided and to hopefully encourage more umpires of the future.
2) to improve the quality of scoring and provide more scorers in the TVCL.
Ultimately, it is about making YOUR cricket and YOUR Saturday afternoons even more enjoyable.
I strongly urge you to show your support for both courses, by sending a minimum of three people (players, club officials, parents, relatives etc), from each of your affected sides and for the Umpires Courses I would expect this to include your Captains. You can of course send as many people as you like. I guarantee participants will come away having enjoyed themselves and learned something useful which they can immediately apply in matches, once the new season starts, and also hopefully pass on to others in your club.
If you stop and think, it just makes sense - so check the details on the attached flyers and book your places now!!
Very best wishes.
TVCL - Chairman
