Umpires play an important role in the game of cricket and Northern Territory Cricket recognises the crucial role they play in delivering great cricket matches and events.
The recruitment and coordination of umpires in the Top End is administered by the Northern Territory Cricket Umpires Association (NTCUA).
NTCUA’s aim is to develop and promote best practice for producing competent umpires for all levels of cricket, through the delivery of authorised training and education programs, throughout the Northern Territory.
Umpires are required to abide by a Code of Behaviour set by the NTCUA in accordance with Cricket Australia guidelines.
Training and Development of Cricket umpires
Umpire accreditation courses and seminars are conducted by the Northern Territory Cricket Umpires Association, through the Umpires Coach and Manager.
During the Darwin and Districts Competition, regular meetings are organised to further develop knowledge and understanding of the Laws of Cricket and issues raised by Club Captains during the competition.
The NTCUA provides a CA Level 1 Umpires course at the beginning of every season in Darwin. The NT Cricket Umpires Association provides annual CA Level 1 and Level 2 Umpire Courses. Accreditation can be achieved over a 2- 6 month period depending on the individual.
All Premier grade umpires are strongly encouraged to gain their Level 2 accreditation.
The resources available for Level 2 include DVD's 'What's Your Decision' and 'The Art of Umpiring', and Level Two manual/workbooks.
