10th MaySubscriptions for 2014-2015. An important explanation for recent email activity.

For your information --- the SHUA financial year is from June 1st to May 31st.

That is why you may have received an email asking for payment of subscriptions for the next season.

Many umpires who take appointments with SHUA choose to pay their next seasonís subs out of their last seasonís claim for expenses --- thank you for this as it makes life a lot easier for the Treasurer and the Membership Secretary.

Some umpires who take appointments with SHUA choose to pay their next seasonís subs out of their next December claim for expenses --- this is not as problem as long as these umpires click on the CLAIM button by December 31st at the latest.

All umpires who do not take appointments with SHUA are asked to pay their subs (which give them many benefits including insurance cover) by June 1st. These umpires are mainly our Associate/Club umpire members. If the subs are not paid within the month of June, it is likely that the umpire will have his/her SHUA membership suspended resulting in the loss of benefits including insurance cover.

Any questions please to Ian Hay on: membershipsecretary@surreyhua.co.uk

6th Nov (2013)New Match Check List documents

The Selection & Coaching Committee is very pleased to be launching 3 new publications today.

Firstly, we have a re-styled and re-worded Match Check List (formerly known as the Pre Match Check List) that is produced in 2 different printing formats. The words Pre Match have been deleted because the booklet is much more of a framework that covers the whole of the game i.e. pre-match, the game itself and importantly the post-match. Both versions print on A4 but fold to a different size. There is a handy version that can be taken to games and is less expensive to reprint in the future and a larger format for easier home reading and markup. The documents can be found on the Web Handbook and Downloads page.

Secondly, we have been working on providing a less thorough document that is specifically aimed at our Club Umpires in Surrey as well as those who are just setting out on their umpiring career. This document carries the mnemonic (WRISKEY) to provocatively identify areas of umpiring that may not always be considered. Clubs are encouraged to pass this around their umpires as we hope to encourage a greater consistency of umpiring from club to club. For experienced umpires this document is definitely worth a read at the start of each season as it can stimulate a few thoughts that are supplemented by the more structured Match Check List referred to above.

Please use these documents wisely and frequently and please do let the Selection Committee know if you have anything that should be added to the documents.
