Vision for Umpiring

World Bowls stipulates its requirements that are then promulgated through the Bowls NZ Umpires committee to the centres, who in turn train the candidates for a national examination and recommend candidates to be International Technical officials. With 4 international events in Christchurch in the upcoming years, ITOs are required to officiate - it is not to late to take the first step - a current accredited umpire.  To mark at the World Singles a current accredited Umpire level 2 is required, to officiate as a green umpire (2) International Technical Officials (ITO 3 or 4) accreditation is required.
