MANDATORY ONLINE RULES TEST FOR ALL QLD PLAYERS FROM 2023. TAKE THE TEST NOW SO YOU QUALIFY TO PLAY
The QPA Board has agreed that in order to lift the quality of umpiring as well as educate players on the rules of the game, it will be mandatory for all players in 2023 to pass the online Base Rules Test. This is for all players in QLD to familarise themselves with the rules of the game and improve the quality of play.
You can take this test any time before the season starts next year however if you register in 2023 and want to take the field, you will need to have passed. A list of all players who have passed, will be kept by QPA.
NSW has also rolled out this program and Victoria are also looking to roll it out to their players as well.
