The workshop which drew participants from all parts of the country commenced with the Technical Development Officer, Colin Stuart urging participants to take in all they can.
According to Stuart, the importance of scorers and their jobs are often overlooked.
“The effective execution of the cricket often underestimated a bit because it deals with fair play and giving you accurate results,” he said.
The one day event, according to Stuart, will be the first of three such courses planned in developing the knowledge base and skills of scorers and potential scorers.
The session today dealt with the introduction to basic scoring, equipment needed, symbols used, umpire signals, acknowledgement of signals and scoring.
According to Facilitator, Liden Wilson, persons often think that the task is basic, but when they get into the ‘nitty gritty’ they realize that it is more than its face value.
Meanwhile, the date for the second event will be released by the Board shortly, with the topic expected to be the use of the Box Hill Method of scoring.
