2. Free table tennis Umpire training class:
Time: 01-07 (Sat) 2 PM - 4 PM
Location: Class room at Liberty Recreation Center, 2601 Glencliff Drive, Plano, Tx 75075
The purpose for this class is to train umpire for 2012 National College TT Championship games. This is the first time that a national TT tourney that ever hold in Dallas area. Whether this event can be successful or not, it is totally depending on our local TT community's volunteer support. The most critical volunteer we need is the umpire. Please review the attached NCTT flyer to get more
The instructor of training class is Scott Ryan, he is an Iinternational Umpire Certified Referee. Probably, he is the best qualified umpire trainer in DFW area. Scot told me he will go thru SERVICE, MATCH CONDUCT, ORDER OF SERVING, RECEIVING AND ENDS, Appendix A Recommended Procedure for Match Officials. Those are critical rules and procedures.
There is NO pre-requirement for umpire training class as lon as you know how to play TT games, anybody is welcome to join this class. There is no age limit either. But, I think you need to be at least 12+ yrs to capable to handle the umpire tasks. Actually, for any young players above 12+ yr, I strongly encourage you to participate this class. As the more rules you know, the better chance you can beat you opponent. Plus,
it makes you look better if you put the umpire certification on your college application.
There will be an open book exam for umpire certificate. Scott told me his 10 and 6 yr sons both passed this exam, so it can not be hard. Besides the training class, we also emphasize the hands-on experience. We will arrange all umpire trainees to practice at Donna's TT tourney on 01-14 (Sat) at Frisco. After you complete our umpire training program, you will become a "Real Umpire" instead of just a "Paper Umpire". The best part is you will have the best trainer and it is free, please don't miss this once in life time opportunity.
There is no registration necessary, just go to the class and we start from there. Thanks.
