INF International Umpiring Manager (IUM), Christina Davidson, says:

“This is a really important activity to complete for international umpiring and the INF is
pleased to be working with those appointed in this role to set world class standards in
international officiating.”

The INF would also like to acknowledge and thank the following people, who will no longer be completing the ITP role, for all their effort and contributions made to International Umpiring: Brenda Prince, Bill Alexander, Chris Burton, Mandy Nottingham and Sheena Tyrrell.

For all the related INF procedures please refer to the International Umpiring Handbook which can be accessed on the INF website here.

As per the ‘INF Procedure for the ITP Programme ITP’ status is reviewed at the end of an appointment by the IUM in conjunction with the Regional Federation, INF Member Country and ROC to determine if there is a recommendation for that appointment to continue. As part of that process the following requirements have been introduced from January 2018:
ITP – minimum of 2 with maximum 4 per Region (2 or 3 year part time voluntary position)
ITP Cadets – maximum of 2 per Region (2 year part time voluntary position)

Note: Candidates in one Region may be additionally or separately appointed to a role in another Region at the discretion of the INF. This would usually only be the case where the quality and number of applicants would otherwise not be met.

The INF wishes all those involved well in completing their duties.
