Netball Umpiring is very rewarding and is fast growing as an individual sport in its own right for people of all ages and levels of experience.  Umpiring is a great way to be involved in the game, whether it’s for the love of netball or to support your friends and children. 

If you have had an umpire qualification before or you’re eager to learn a new skill, you may be an ex-player, a former coach, a keen supporter, a Mum or a Dad – why not pick up a whistle and be involved, The good news is, to get started all you need to bring is a bit of enthusiasm  and a passion for the game – we’ll take care of the rest and give you the tools and support you need to become an umpire.

Join a great team of people, meet new friends, get fit, have fun, build confidence and communications skills that extend far beyond the netball court
