Active BA Umpires
Code of Conduct and Ethics for Lawn Bowls Officials
Umpires play a vital role in ensuring that all aspects of play are in line with the Laws of the Sport of Bowls. Umpires must be able to apply their knowledge of the laws in an approach that will make the experience enjoyable for both the participants and the officials.
One of the goals of BA is to have at least one umpire at each lawn bowling club in Alberta. If you would like to become an umpire please contact the BA office or the provincial head umpire, Jenn MacDonald at Umpiring candidates must have a minimum of two years of bowling experience.
