PUMA Competition Officials Course

On Sunday 1st March PUMA held their annual Tournament Officials Course in Yate. This is a course for Red Belts and above to train to become PUMA Umpires and Referees. Mr Swain went up to refresh his refereeing skills, and was joined by Mrs Hallett and Jack who were taking their first step along the umpires path.

Through the day the rules for each of the events were explained, as well as the roles and responsibilities for umpires and referees on the day of competition. There was then plenty of opportunity to put the new knowledge into practice with other course attendees performing patterns and sparring.

I want to wish Mrs Hallett and Jack the best of luck on their new journey!
