    Howdy folks,

    I'm embarking on the EH Level One umpiring course next week. I've done the rules test. Just wondering if there's any recommendations about anything else I can do ahead of it to get full value from the day?

    Not really mate. You've done the rule test and if you are a player and have a good understanding of the rules you'll be absolutely fine.

    I gather from my other half who did it, you get a lot of mini games to practice skills so take suitable kit and some lunch

    Before the new course arrived in 2013, Hampshire HUA offered a pre-course study guide. It still seems to be there as a download. The aim was to help an umpire spot and attend to the most important bits of the course, for them personally, at their particular stage of development.

    Ok it dates from 2010, refers to the 2009 Rules, and follows Hampshire's particular course structure of 2009-2013, so precious little in common with the 2017 course or assessment. Whatever.... I reckon it stands the test of time, but I would say that, wouldn’t I? ;)

    Thank you I will download to read up this week!

    I went on the club umpire developer course this week - Very informative for helping others, but definitely helped with some aspects of my own positioning!
