umpiring & scoring

People choose to become umpires for a variety of reasons, including: enjoyment of the game; to participate in the game; for fitness; to learn the laws of cricket; and to help their club or association.


Umpiring - A Good Decision

Umpiring is a great way to stay involved in the game you love, either at the grassroots level or within elite national and international competitions.

SACA runs a range of introductory and technical courses to assist newcomers or ensure existing umpires are given career development opportunities.

South Australian cricket umpires, regardless of what association they are involved with, are required to complete a minimum of a Community Officiating Course and register to the South Australian Cricket Association (SACA).

For more information about becoming an umpire, visit the Cricket Umpires Australia website or contact


Cricket Scoring


Scoring is a vital, if often overlooked, element of volunteering in cricket clubs that enables the game to prosper at all levels across the state. 

The SA Cricket Umpires and Scorer's Association (SACUSA) is South Australia's premier cricket umpires and scorers association. Visit their website for more information.
