The ICC have produced a number of videos as part of the 'What is Cricket' series. Ever wondered what all of the different signals that an umpire makes mean when they are being used during a match? Look no further as we explain all of the most frequently used signals from the umpires right around the world of cricket.
The ACBACO Online stage 1 course is now available! Candidates based in ICC Europe members can register themselves via the below link and will be granted access to the ECB E-learning system to complete the course in their own time.
Umpiring is an essential part in providing consistent and high class league matches and is a great way to be involved in our great sport if playing isn't an option.

‘Following discussions between the Isle of Man Cricket Association (IOMCA) and the Isle of Man Association of Cricket Officials (IOMACO), the IOMACO has agreed to disband as a separate organisation and see the recruitment and development of umpires become part of the IOMCA.
This move will bring all aspects of developing and organising cricket on the Isle of Man under one entity, the IOMCA. Given the growth in the numbers playing cricket at all levels in the Island, it was agreed by both parties that the combining responsibilities for playing and officiating under the IOMCA would allow for the development of current and future umpires.’
The IOMCA would like to thank all current and previous committee members for their efforts with the IOMACO, a particular mention to David Kenworthy for his efforts on education and scheduling umpires, and look forward to using their knowledge and expertise in the future.
Further details on how to become involved and up-skill as an umpire will follow soon.
Umpiring Courses for 2017
The IOMCA in conjunction with the Islands association of officials are providing two options for parents/heplers/players to gain knowledge in umpiring. There are options for those who just want to help out primarily in junior games but potentially also is the evening league games to attend a bespoke workshop which will be delivered to participants needs. The course will cover basic rules, signals and playing conditions for junior cricket along with anything else required by attendees to gain the confidence to umpire games in a fun but effective manner. We will also be running an official ECBACO level 1 umpiring course for those committed to learn more. Both courses are being 100% funded by the IOMCA to assist getting more people involved in the game. See attached for more details.
THE JUNIOR UMPIRING COURSE WILL BE HELD AT KING WILLIAM'S COLLEGE GYM THIS SUNDAY 26TH MARCH BETWEEN 2:15 AND 5:00
