    I am unsure if you really need those factors in making a decision to attend a course.

    The point of the thread is just to advertise the course.

    It's not a career. Once the pool is big enough, a few will move on. I don't think every person that attends the course wants to become an international referee.

    It's more appropriate to move a full discussion of the Umpiring qualification to another thread.;)

    Exactly Cheung, agree with you

    As I mentioned, this thread is to create awareness and ignite people passion.
    Career path or otherwise is personal option.

    Hahaha.....Everyone have their point right. My experience over transperency was an eye opener. Lesson learn from than thought me never to take at face value again any organisation is not in full control of the situation.


    A course I attended many years ago had "conditions" inserted midway - non negotiable - if you disagree, the exit door is over there! I completed the course - or loose the $ I've paid upfront - had I walk out. I never consider going for the next level again after that experience.

    Journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step... Aiyo just go for it man... It's only $42.80 registration to get to know badminton in different angles. Why some people ask so many questions whether got BWF, BAC or SBA la? Like it's a $4,280 course fee like that hahaha. Go go Susanto!

    I took up SBA Class 3 Umpires's Course last winter (2011). That time I really have had no idea what is badminton umpire and didn't know such thing exists. I enrolled myself because I got so interested in this new sport. I wanted to get to know the rules so I might play better and thought it would be fun to "attend a short course". Today, I've never regretted taking up the course. We do get some allowances as volunteers and it was fun. Umpiring is a set of skills and knowledge. I hope that some old time umpires or people who are not really interested kindly do not contaminate the healthy minds of others. Singapore is a clean and green country. Let's maintain it this way!

    Where is the link that talks about umpiring in SG or bwf?

    Transparency and improvement of processes is key to developments.

    I don't feel it and sad to see this happening.

    Some former umpires may want to comment on the limitations? No harm trying to help SBA correct? Am sure they are willing to improve.

    For the passion of umpiring of course. ;)
