Cricket Scotland encourage all officials to become members of their regional association which will provide access to training and development, appointments to matches, and on-going support on your journey as an official.
We also highly recommend that all officials become members of the ECBACO so you can access training courses and excellent personal insurance cover.

Aside from the tuition you’ll receive on each individual course, our regional associations provide ongoing support to help you develop as you move through the pathway.
You’ll work with experienced umpires and scorers who’ll be on hand to help you build on your skills. They’ll offer:
Each association offer mentoring opportunities to help you to take charge of your own learning by giving you the tools to assess your performances and spot ways you can improve.
By casting a critical eye over your performances, they’ll help ensure that your progress is on track and advise how the situation can be remedied if you’re struggling in any particular area.
As time goes by the focus will move more towards measuring your performance and checking that you’re fulfilling all the necessary criteria to officiate at your chosen level. This is done through boundary assessments with qualified assessors, conversations with your tutors and mentors, and peer assessments.
