Umpire Assessors

Assessors have experience and knowledge of the game and are able to mentor aspiring umpires.


Qualifying as an Assessor

Those wishing to pursue an Assessor role must hold a minimum Provincial rating, and have been an active umpire to 4+ years. Assessor candidates must attend an Umpire Assessor’s course and take part in the practical portion of the course in addition to the in-class theory.
Umpire Assessor ratings expire four (4) years following a successful completion of the Assessors course.
