  12. What Should be Observed?(Every time) • Concentration – knowing that the next delivery should be the focus • Positive body language and image – particularly coping with pressure and when giving decisions • Demonstrated enjoyment of umpiring • Decision making – correctness; body language • Professional image - neat, tidy and appropriate dress • Positive, efficient and effective movements and positioning • Signals as per Laws • Signalling to partner (eg ‘tic-tac-toe’)

  13. What May be Observed(any given day) • Knowledge and understanding of the Laws and Competition Rules • Positive and receptive participation in post-game facilitation • Mental courage and toughness • Fitness and Hydration • Respect for, support of and loyalty to colleague(s) • Respect for all players, participants, officials and the Game itself • Player management – including ‘proactive’ communication; avoid officiousness • Completion of self-assessments • Commonsense • Avoidance of idle chatter to players • Exercise of duty of care for all involved in game and preparation before day’s play – • Having the required equipment and documentation

  14. Attributes Outsidea Normal Day’s Play • Commitment to proactive self-improvement – use of a mentor, seeking feedback • Attendance at Council meetings and Laws sessions • Learns from experience - attitude towards and utilization of feedback • Seeking help if needed • Loyalty to colleagues and the fraternity more broadly and the Game – tact and discretion • Respect for the ACTCA and its various bodies
