Officials Technical Group (OTG)

Extenuating circumstances and the 4 year rule for the development of new umpires

APPROVED at OTG - June 2014

 

Background

At the March 2014 OTG, there was a discussion around the need for a review of umpires who had run out of the 4 year maximum development cycle due to extenuating circumstances. These included having a family, serious injury or illness, coming back from abroad etc. It was accepted that there were circumstances where committed umpired should be able to continue to develop beyond the 4 year time period, but this should not be an excuse for umpires with no intention of taking their C Award assessment.

From the Discussion Document tabled at the June 2014 OTG, the following procedure was approved.

 

Proposal

Extenuating circumstances should be listed and will include:

Severe adverse circumstances beyond your control, that would affect your ability to proceed with your umpire development within the 4 year timescale for gaining the C Award 

Maternity, both pre and post pregnancy, including the possibility of more than one pregnancy within a short timescale

Returning from a period of time abroad

Bereavement of a close friend or relative

 

For any extenuating circumstance, discuss confidentially with the chair of the OTG, together with evidence to support circumstamce. A decision on the way forward will be agreed.
