Performance & Development

SACO supports its umpire members by arranging periodic boundary observations by experienced, trained and accredited officials.  These are followed by feedback that is intended to lead to improved performances and increased levels of confidence.  Whether an umpire would like to make progress in his/her umpiring career or simply obtain objective and constructive help and fresh ideas from an observer, help and support is available.

An observation, including a pre-match discussion and post-match feedback followed by a written report, costs £35 and can be arranged through the County Performance Officer, Brian Hurn (brianhurn@btinternet.com) who may be contacted for further information on any aspect of performance or development.
