It gives you the opportunity to give something back to the sport you love, whilst also helping to widen participation in the sport. We need more people willing to pick up a whistle and help out on a Saturday (and sometimes a Sunday). If you, your parent or a friend is willing to help out then please let us know by emailing We will be looking to put on an umpires course shortly. The more people willing to help out, the easier it is to ensure we have an umpire for each game.

Have a great season!

The Committee
