BECOME AN AFFILIATED UMPIRE

Becoming an affiliated umpire is the official umpire membership at Auckland Netball, and applies to umpires ages 15 years and older who have their Centre Theory qualification or higher. 

Join the team of affiliated umpires at Auckland Netball to get connected with one of our Umpire Panels – Centre Panel, Zone Panel, or NZ Panel depending on your level of experience and qualification. Once affiliated, umpires are connected with our umpire community, get support in finding an umpire coach, and are offered guidance for achieving their next level of qualification. Affiliated umpires also gain priority in allocations appropriate to their level of qualification, plus access umpire group communications about competitions and tournaments, Zone and NNZ pathways, and further development opportunities. 

Umpires contribute greatly towards the successful competitions at Auckland Netball and we are lucky to have a number of long-standing and experienced umpires as part of our netball community. We thank these umpires for their actions out on court, and in supporting the developing umpires coming up from the levels below.
