Our Become an Umpire Evening Programmes are fun, engaging and cover the fundamentals of umpiring across two sessions: theory and practical. As part of the Become an Umpire Programme you will sit the NNZ Centre Theory Test – the minimum level recommended for umpiring intermediate school, secondary school and club grades at Auckland Netball.
Players and coaches will benefit from this course too, because knowing the rules inside-out gives you the best foundation to compete.
This workshop is essential for everyone who will be umpiring the MotherEarth futureFERNS 6v6 game format. It covers the rules, the variations from netball’s traditional game format, hand signals and positioning, balancing a ‘friendly whistle’ with enforcing rules fairly, and shares practical tips and strategies for umpiring this age-group.
