. Please note that teams will not umpire each week and no team will have to umpire more that 50% of the games of the season.
We ask your assistance with the umpiring as this is a change, we are also asking that you do not provide umpires for the teams, that the teams become responsible and use players from their teams to do the umpiring, and if this happens, then we can use the Badged umpires for TBA's and coaching etc.
