National Umpire Course (Dutch)

On Sunday 03/03/2024, the TUIC ITF Belgium hosted a National Umpire Course in Lokeren. The course, in Dutch language, was conducted by Master Eddy Van Damme and Boosabum Sophie Ardenoy from the Tournament Umpire and IT Comitee. There was a first part for beginners and a second part for advanced umpires.

How to set a ring, the protocols, the rules for tul, teamtul, sparring, teamsparring, pre-arranged free sparring, power and specials were covered. Also the behaviour of the umpires and coaches, the differents duties in the different positions or functions in the ring, hand signals and other procedures were part of the content of the course. In total 32 participants made a lot of questions and showed a great motivation and interest. As TUIC we hope this can bring more potential umpires to our championship and help to improve their quality.
