MCUA has changed the way that Captains report on umpires performance.

Previously, Captains completed a Word document and sent it by email.

Rather than a Word document the report is now on a Microsoft Form enabling it to be filled in online and then submitting electronically.

The report can be completed on a mobile, tablet or PC. This is the link to the form.

MCUA has emailed this link to every Captain as listed on the Club contacts on the web site.

MCUA has also produced a briefing note regarding marking umpires which is shown below. This has also gone to each Captain.


2021 Captains Marks on Umpire Performance

MCUA ask the Captains to mark their match umpires.

We ask that you mark the overall performance of your umpires based on the whole match and not just on isolated incidents.

Marks are to be given in 4 categories – Communication, Control of the Match, Control of the Players and Decision Making.

Mark the umpires performance in each category

1 = Very Good2 = Good3 = Average and 4 = Below Average

You have the opportunity to add a comment about the performance of an individual umpire. It is not a requirement to add a comment but you may wish to do so. A positive as well as a negative comment is always helpful. The responses will be used to help umpire improvement and development.

You should be aware that individual marks and comments are confidential and are not shared directly with individual umpires but may be used for appointment and training purposes.

- Communicate with Captains, Players and Scorers effectively?

Did the Umpire: -
