For years I have thought about all the things that are not written in the rules that helps an umpire starting in their career (yes it is a career!). For over 20 years now I have taught B and C grade umpire courses nationally in New Zealand. This thesis is a compilation of the tips and tricks that I have learnt over my journey to becoming a national and international umpire (and all the things that I do not get to teach in umpire courses). The advice is classed into the different duties for an umpire. I hope these will help others to improve and grow as an umpire, but most importantly to have the confidence to enjoy the umpiring experience.
