ATTENTION: ALL UMPIRES
The Umpires Association has committed to improving the standard of Umpiring in Victoria and the Island and hopes to offer a few educational opportunities over the 2015-2016 season. The first of which will be on Wednesday October 28th.
Instead of doing the tradition briefing, we’re going to try something a little different. The focus of the session will be Game Management and instead of conducting a lecture with videos and a Q & A, we’re going to have you work together in small groups to discuss and problem solve various scenarios related to game management.
Each breakout group will work on game management issues related to:
2. Off-ball or “out of your area of control” management
3. Physical play
The session will be facilitated by Gillian Horgan, Chris Wilson, Alison Sweeten and Denise McGeachy. The facilitators role will be there to offer suggestions but the goal is for the groups to work through each scenario as a group and find a successful solution and present that solution to the larger group.
In order to make this session truly useful to all umpires, we would like YOU to send us suggestions of situations you have faced under the categories above – things that happened to you that maybe didn’t go very well and you wished you could have done it better, or was confusing, or maybe just weird. We intend to use as many of your scenarios as possible so please email them to Denise!
October 28, 7-9 pm
UVic, McKinnon Gym room 150
