EBED’s calendar of director training courses for the first half of 2019 is available online (details below), and caters for all levels of knowledge and experience when it comes to organising the game. The focus is to provide new club directors with the confidence to take on the responsibility of running a session and the knowledge to handle the common situations which come up routinely at every club, big or small. We also welcome teachers who might wish to start a new session for their students, players who wish to improve their knowledge of the laws or members of non-affiliated clubs who wish to improve the way things run at their own clubs.
We organise courses all round England and are always on the look-out for new venues. If you think your club or region could do with a few more directors, please contact Richard who can discuss all the ins and outs of hosting a course. EBED is responsible for the administration and finances of any course, so there is no downside for your club in doing this.
We are also happy to run bespoke refresher courses for clubs and counties, and also provide practical training in the use of EBUScore.
Bookings can either be made by individuals or by clubs on behalf of a larger group. We encourage individual bookings to be made online via the “MyEBU” link on the EBU website, but clubs will need to contact Richard directly.
As an introduction to our training courses, players may also want to take a look at the director training videos on the EBU website.
For more details please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Any further dates will be added to the calendar in due course.
Please check the calendar for the date of the three sessions at each venue.
It is intended that there will be 15-20 courses held around the country each year, and more dates will be added in due course. Plans are in hand for Cheltenham (Sept-Nov 2019), Hayes (Middlesex), Halifax, East Kent, and Southport (late 2019). There will also be a course in Eastbourne when (all being well) the Summer Meeting returns there in August 2019. EBED would like to hear from other clubs who would be interested in hosting a course - please contact email@example.com.
Individuals can now book on these courses online, through My EBU (choose ‘Book courses’ from the ‘Utilities’ menu). If the club wishes to book and pay for an individual then they should do so directly with Richard Banbury - 01296 317218 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
These are a one day course, beginning at 10:30am and ending no later than 4:30pm.
Further details available from Richard Banbury - 01296 317218 or by email: email@example.com.
To get ready for the preparation course - or to see if it may be suitable for you - please download this test paper consisting of 40 situations to consider. Some are book rulings, some judgement rulings and, in some cases, good old-fashioned common-sense. Some are quite intricate and others straightforward, but hopefully they will all make you think.
Further details are available here, and from Richard Banbury - 01296 317218 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
