By now you should have received the letter explaining what we are hoping to achieve with the Tideway Coaching Endorsement and hopefully the form I have asked your coaches to complete. If you didn’t receive the form for the coaches please find it here.
As you can imagine I’ve received many questions and queries since the letters went out and so I just wanted to follow up to try and clarify a few areas and also answer some of the questions. The basic motivation behind getting all coaches on the Tideway endorsed is twofold; Firstly it is a sensible way to raise the quality of the coaching on the Tideway and ensure that we are all following a basic minimum standard. Secondly it is a method by which we can try and help get safety to the front of every coaches mind, particularly in light of what has happened over the last 12 months.
Every year, the TRUC puts on seminars for the region's umpires to find out about changes to the rules of racing and discuss points of interest or concern. The 2017 Umpire Seminars are scheduled to be held on the following dates:
If you have any suggestions or agenda items, please pass them to Dave Hancock or any member of TRUC.
Umpires are reminded that they are required to attend a minimum of one seminar every three years.
