CJCA – Spring Tournament trials are open

CJCA advise that the spring trials are open for their tournament – please follow this link for all the information and you can nominate your son or daughter to get involved.


Umpiring courses

There are 2 Umpire Courses open for Registration now.

The CJCA is pleased to announce that registrations are now open for a Level 1 Umpires Courses to be held on the 1st & 15th of October  –

These courses have limited numbers.

A Boys Course targeted at year 8 but open to keen Year 7’s will be held on the 1st of October as per details below.

There is a Course on the 15th of October for Girls – this is open to all years but we would expect that it would be best suited to Year 7 Girls and above

As these Boys & Girls exit the CJCA and move into Youth/School cricket it is important to the CJCA that we provide an opportunity for them to be equipped with the skills necessary to give them the confidence to umpire their own games and and also have the knowledge of cricket law to assist in their enjoyment and proficiency in the sport.

Boys & Girls passing this course will also have the opportunity to umpire in CJCA Tournaments (as they themselves have been umpired) from March next year onwards and assist the CJCA in providing quality events for players to enjoy the game.


Eugene Sanders – Canterbury Cricket Match Officials Co-ordinator


Date: 1 & 15 October 2017           Venue: Umpire’s Pavilion – Hagley Oval

Time: 9:30 – 3:30. Course: Level 1 umpire’s course with exam.

Bring along a pen, notepad, drink bottle, lunch and snacks. It is also important to bring a device (Mobile phone or tablet), as your exam will be done online.

If you were following the recent West Indies vs England 2nd Test Match which saw the Windies win an unlikely victory you may have noticed NZ umpire Chris Gaffaney at the middle umpiring. His debut international ODI umpiring duty was in 2010, and now is on the ICC elite umpiring panel – if you are thinking about moving from playing to umpiring or scoring you can talk to Eugene or find out all the information on their website https://www.crcua.co.nz/


Ground Repairs

Following the vandalism when a car rips up park  with the help of FC2011, CCC and their subcontractors, and Dave Robertson we have been able to get on with the ground remediation earlier and we hope the repaired the damage will be back to playing condition sooner than originally expected, this will come down to the weather.  You can read more on the task the council has on repairing grounds at the change of sporting codes here
