        To Receive an evaluation:

            a.       When arriving at the tournament, the umpire is expected to notify the Referee that they are seeking an evaluation at the tournament. 

            b.      Prior to being evaluated, the umpire is expected to have practiced umpiring at the tournament. 

            c.       The umpire is expected to be available to the Referee to be assigned to tables for a minimum 3 hour block of time to receive 1 evaluation.  This means that the umpire will be near                 the control desk for assignment to tables or as specified by the Referee for the 3 hour block of time.

            d.      Ensure you have a net guage (borrow one if necessary).

            e.      Ask questions and seek feedback prior to the match evaluation.

            f.        The evaluation will result in either a “Meets Expectations” or “Needs Improvement” result, which will be marked on your card.  A “Needs Improvement” means that the evaluation                 does not count as one of your positive results needed to write the Provincial Exam, but  also means that you have received feedback as part of your training.  This is about ensuring                 that you are properly trained as an umpire so that you can improve for the next evaluation.  Part of the evaluation is about your ego and reaction to the evaluation.  Keep a positive                 attitude and pay attention to the feedback from the evaluator regardless of the result.
