Sydney Shires Cricket Umpires Association

The Sydney Shires Cricket Umpires Association was formed prior to the start of the 2001/02 cricket season for the purpose of supplying neutral match officials to the Sydney Shires Cricket competition.

Our cricket is played exclusively on turf wickets by 14 different clubs throughout the Sydney metropolitan area, from late September to the first week of April each summer season.

Training for new members

We welcome enquiries from new members and are happy to guide you through a training course and examination if you have never passed an accredited umpires examination and are thinking about taking up umpiring.

Umpire training courses are run at regular intervals throughout the year. These courses are run by accredited trainers who aim to ensure your ability to pass the exam.

Those who successfully pass these training courses receive accreditation to umpire cricket in the Sydney Shires Cricket Competitions. To express an interest in an upcoming training course please click on the "Contact Us" link on the main menu and then send us an email.

Already an accredited umpire?

We warmly welcome any accredited cricket umpires who might want to participate in our competition and will be more than happy to appoint you only to areas of Sydney that you are happy to officiate in.

We hope you enjoy your visit to our website. If you have any feedback or questions, or wish to join our Association, please click on the "Contact Us" link on the main menu and send us an email.
