Hampshire Association of Cricket Officials (HACO)

The association's aim is to recruit and retain umpires and scorers by providing a structured training programme.  Its purpose is to improve standards of officials and encourage progression between grading levels to ensure there is a minimum number of umpires and scorers to support recreational cricket in the county.

All members of the ECB Association of Cricket Officials (ECB ACO) who have chosen Hampshire as their county, are automatically members of HACO. 

Winter Courses for Umpires and Scorers

Winter courses in 2018/19 come with a year's free ECB ACO membership (usual cost £30)!  You will also receive a £20 discount code for Stage 2 courses.  Membership is optional and subject to meeting application criteria.

HACO’s Education Officer Jon Leckie (details below) coordinates Hampshire courses which you can book via the buttons below.  Subject to demand further courses may run, please contact Jon for further information and check out the new HACO facebook page for event details.
