Umpiring and Scoring

Becoming an Umpire

NSW Cricket Umpires and Scorers Association (NSWCUSA) facilitates training courses on the Laws of Cricket for prospective umpires across NSW.


Umpiring is open to men and women of all ages and stages of life. Umpires range from young people wanting to be involved in cricket to retirees wanting to stay active and participate in a worthwhile community activity on a weekend. If you want to be an umpire, and make a contribution to cricket, there is a place for you umpiring Australia’s favourite sport in one of our many competitions in NSW.

The course is suited to prospective umpires, team captains and players, club officials, coaches and team managers. 

There is an assessment task on the Laws of Cricket held at the conclusion of the course. 

Completing this task to an acceptable standard enables the candidate to apply for membership of NSWCUSA.

NSWCUSA members officiate in the Sydney Cricket Association Grade and Shires competitions, and also in representative programs of the NSW Country Cricket Association. 

We currently have member Rodney Tucker officiating in matches at international level as a member of the ICC Elite Umpire Panel, while NSWCUSA members Gerard Abood, Greg Davidson and Anthony Wilds receive appointments to umpire in Cricket Australia conducted competitions.

For information regarding upcoming training courses on the Laws of Cricket, being held at Cricket NSW, please contact the NSWCUSA Administration Manager, Troy Penman, on nswcusa@cricketnsw.com.au or 0425 201 835.
