Umpiring in the Thames Region

*NEW* 2017 Thames Region Umpire Seminars

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:

  • Tuesday 4th April 19:30  [London RC] 
  • Thursday 20th April 19.30  [City of Oxford RC]

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.

About the TRUC

The Thames Regional Umpiring Committee (TRUC) is responsible for all aspects of Umpiring within the Thames Region and reports to the Regional Council.

The Thames Region has more competitors, Regattas and Head Races than any other part of the UK. To ensure every event has sufficient licensed Officials there needs to be at least 110 active people on the Umpires list.

An Umpires Licence is granted for a period of three years. During this time umpires are expected to do a minimum of six events each year.

Events are at liberty to invite the Umpires of their choice and, as an Umpires Licence is valid for the whole country, it is common practice for Umpires to work 'out of Region'. There is, of course, no limit to the number of events an individual can choose to attend.
