Upcoming Umpire, Measurer and Marker Courses

10th October  2023

MEMO to ALL CLUBS No.19/23

Re:  Upcoming Umpire, Measurer and Marker Courses

Further to Memo 18/23 regarding a push for new Umpires and Markers we holding courses at Capalaba Bowls Club on Sunday 3rd and 10th December for Umpires, Measurers and Markers.

Applicants who are reaccrediting are required to attend on the 3rd December at 9.00am.   The reaccreditation process will take approximately 4- 5 hours.

The cost for reaccrediting is $33.00.  The cost for accrediting is $25.00 per module or $55.00 for the entire course.  There are 3 modules.  It is necessary to complete all three modules to become an umpire.

Applicants who are accrediting are also required to attend at 9.00am on Sunday the 3rd December.  The course will go from 9.00am to approximately 4.00pm.   All accrediting players are also required to attend at 9.00am on Sunday the 10th December to complete the course.

In both instances applicants are required to apply for the course through Bowls Queensland (BQ).    Applicants are also required to acquire a current Law Book (Crystal Mark 4).

Applicants will receive a training manual from BQ.  It is imperative that applicants read this manual as questions will come from the manual for both the reaccreditation and accreditation courses.  Bowls Australia are currently rewriting the training manual.  Should you not receive one please see an umpire at your club to acquire a loan of one.  New manuals will be forwarded when available.

Applicants are required to wear bowls shoes and bring a hat as there is on green work.  Pen and paper are also required.

Meals are not provided, however available from the Sports Club.
