In order to disseminate information on the rules changes that will affect all matches in Gloucestershire from September 2016, we plan to hold two New Rules Workshops.
These workshops are designed for umpires, coaches and players to learn about the rules changes, how they affect the application of rules and what the changes mean for players.
In addition, attending one of the two workshops will be compulsory for all umpires in the county who wish to continue umpiring from September 2016.
The workshops are currently planned for 7-9pm on Tuesday 7th June and Wednesday 27th July. Further details will be confirmed in due course.
