See below some information about the up-and-coming umpire courses across Derbyshire.

ECB Stage 1 Online

For anybody who is brand-new to umpiring and would like to give it a go for 2023.

This might be most suited to a brand new club umpire or someone who would like to start umpiring occasionally in league games.

Laws & Playing Conditions Forum – 9th Jan onwards (either free or a nominal amount to help cover costs, TBC)

In the new year I plan to hold an informal weekly forum where we will go Law-by-Law (including Law Changes and Playing Conditions relevant to each law) through the Laws of the game and share our knowledge & experiences.  This will likely be via Zoom, though if there is plenty of interest it could be face-to-face with Zoom in the background ‘hybrid’-style.  Anyone is welcome.
