Congratulations to Steve Le Monnier, Ric Sousa, James Marshall, Barry Chandler, Darren Hodges and Rem Floris who all completed a two day umpire training course held at Les Quennevais this weekend. The course, run by BASU Training Officer Chris Moon, covered the rules of the game as well as practical umpiring skills and was followed by a written and practical assessment.
The JSA requires each team to fulfil umpiring assignments across the season and provides regular training to its members to facilitate this. The knowledge gained through training also helps the attendees develop and improve their own playing game as they come to better understand the rules of Slowpitch Softball.
Let's be sure to give a warm welcome to all new umpires when you see them on the diamond!
