The RDCA Umpires' Association is always on the look out for new members particularly those who have played the game but have now decided for whatever reason to not continue playing. In recent years we have been well supported by a number of ex-players who have continued their involvement by joining the RDCA Umpires' fraternity.
I would appreciate if you take the time and canvass the members/supporters of your Association to ascertain if there's any interest from those no longer playing in remaining involved in our great game by becoming involved as an umpire.
I welcome enquiries from new members who can be guided through training courses and suitable accreditation courses to build their knowledge of the rules. Our ongoing training programs will compliment past experience on the field making the transition much easier than those who have little or no involvement in cricket.
Our 2016/2017 payment rates range between $130 - $150 per day depending on the type of fixture being played and involves a commitment of around 6 hours on match days.
I also welcome any accredited cricket umpires who might want to participate in our competition so if you know of anyone who lives within our region and is looking for a change please refer them to our Recruiting Officers:
