THE search is on for the next gen­er­a­tion of male and fe­male cricket um­pires for the 2016-17 WACA sea­son.

Um­pires re­ceive on­go­ing train­ing and de­vel­op­ment, and there are op­por­tu­ni­ties to go up from com­mu­nity um­pir­ing to do­mes­tic com­pe­ti­tions, in­clud­ing the Big Bash League.

WACA um­pire man­ager Matthew Hall knows bet­ter than any­one that as an um­pire you are never out of the game.

“Hav­ing played cricket, I wanted to give back to the game that had given me so much,” Hall said.

“Um­pir­ing cer­tainly pro­vides the best ex­pe­ri­ence for watch­ing the game from close quar­ters and be­ing in­volved in Aus­tralia’s favourite sport.”

Cricket Aus­tralian Com­mu­nity Of­fi­ci­at­ing Cour­ses are run on­line and prac­ti­cal cour­ses are be­ing held in Au­gust for new um­pires.

For more in­for­ma­tion, or to reg­is­ter your in­ter­est, con­tact Matthew Hall at [email protected] or visit waca.com.au.
