Umpiring can be exciting, challenging, rewarding and gives you a greater understanding of the game. It is a life skill you can receive many rewards from. Our oldest umpire is 82, still enjoying officiating our matches.

Becoming Involved

The first step to becoming an umpire is to contact your Club Umpire Coordinator.

Your Club Umpire Coordinator will introduce you to the HATs “Have-A-Try” program, at the 8.10am and 9am time slots each Saturday.

You will require:

  • a whistle
  • the Netball Australia Official Rules of Netball rule book
  • a white shirt and skirt or white dress (boys to wear white shirt and shorts)

You will be required to:

  • Attend a “Fundamentals of Umpiring” session, usually held on the first Saturday of the season
  • Over time, complete the 2 online pre-requisites for obtaining your C badge –
    • Rules of Netball Theory Examination (must obtain a 70% plus pass mark) (no cost)
    • Umpire Course Level 1 (cost $25)

To complete the online e-learning go to the Netball Victoria website,  and follow the prompts.

Please contact the Whitehorse Umpires Coordinator if you need further information or assistance.
