Online umpiring training and certification program to commence this weekend
by DreamCricket USA
Jan 24, 2013

USACUA member and NJSCUA Founder and President Deepak Katte who led a successful initiative for an online version of USACUA/WICUA Umpiring Training and Certification Program for the 2012 season announced that the program's second edition would commence on Sunday, Jan, 27, 2013 at 8 am.

NJSCUA has been organizing and coordinating the Umpire’s Certification program based on the requirements of the West Indies Cricket Umpires Association (WICUA) and the United States Cricket Umpire’s Association (USACUA), every year since 2010. This initiative is thanks to the pioneering effort of Deepak Katte, Ram Ragoo and Fitzroy Hayles. 

NJSCUA have trained and certified over 23 umpires so far and the online certification mechanism is one of the first of its kind in this part of the world.  Anyone with a computer, an internet connection and a sound card can participate in the online training.

Speaking about the 2013 certification, Katte said: “I’m proud to say that all of our hard work and efforts in putting the online program together culminated last year, when we successfully launched the “iclass”, which went on over twelve weekends without major glitches. All the participants were extremely happy with the way it was presented.”

"Such a training program is offered only at a handful of places, IICUS, England and New South Wales Cricket Umpire’s Association in Australia to name a couple and I’m happy we are one amongst the handful. I believe all of these efforts would ultimately go a long way towards betterment of Cricket in USA in some form, whatever the level be.

"This is just the beginning and more on the way to come," Katte said.

Enrollment is still open for interested umpires. Interested members should contact Katte by emailing president@njscua.com or calling 609-665-0343 for more details.
