Aspiring Zone Umpires

The zone award is comprised of a theory test which is followed by screening by umpire coaches and then an assessment to gain the Zone Umpire award. Zone umpires show a more advanced understanding of the rules, the applications, and the use of advantage and hand signals. Tournaments are also available more readily at this level which comes with more coaching from umpire coaches and experience helping you move up the umpire pathway.

*Must have current Centre Practical Endorsement*
