Rangers provides umpires for all junior and senior matches. All umpires who receive payment must complete the Payment to Supplier with no ABN form.
Senior Umpires : Saturday afternoon matches 12:45pm to 4:15pm. Senior umpires must be 16 years + or hold the National C Badge. Senior umpires earn $20 per match.
Convenor: Lyn Wells firstname.lastname@example.org
What is involved?
All umpires attain a 70% pass mark and keep the Netball Australia Rules of Netball online exam current. Please send the junior or senior umpire convenor copy of the certificate. This course costs $10.48 and runs through the rules. We suggest having the rule book open on another tab to refer to. The exam is timed but you can attempt it as many times as you need to. The Rules of Netball Certificate is valid for 4 years and must be re-sat when expired.
It is strongly recommended to attend the NSNA Junior Red Robin Umpire Session. The course is free but you must register on the NSNA website under the umpire tab.
On Game Day:
- Arrive at least 10 minutes before the start of the game
- Print your name clearly on the umpire sign on sheet before the match
- Check sidelines for obstacles, you should not have to go onto the court to avoid drink bottles/bags/spectators
- Introduce yourself to the other umpire – you guys are a team!
- Check nails, jewellery, no elastic bands or bracelets etc – note piercings must be removed and cannot be covered by tape.
- Captains must do the toss and advise you of the outcome
- At the end of each quarter, meet the other umpire in the middle of the court or talk with your mentor – also on the court.
The key things for a new umpire are loud and clear voice, loud and clear whistle, decisive calls, (it doesn’t matter if they are not quite the right calls), keeping up with the game (running down the sideline and round the base line).
Umpire development forms a big part of being an umpire and the girls really enjoy the challenge to see if they can get levelled at least once in the season. Umpiring is a fabulous way for a player to develop an understanding of the rules and as such be better players themselves. There are umpire coaching opportunities throughout the season, we are lucky to have the support of very experienced National C badge umpires to guide our girls.
If we don’t have one of the required grades ourselves we need to borrow matches from other clubs who are also trying to level their umpires. Please be patient as it is not always possible to borrow other club's matches. Sometimes borrowed matches for levelling are unpaid as different clubs have different payment structures and some don’t pay at all. Junior levels are attained by players U15 and below. Senior levels by players 16 and over playing in senior grades.
SL2 are recommended to wear whites and umpire B5/C3/C4/C5/D1 to attain this senior level.
SL1 must wear whites and umpire B3/B4/B5/C1/C2 to attain this senior level
National C Badge
Juniors need to umpire 14A or 15A. Sunday umpiring of a Rep Carnival or several is required to gain the required high level match experience, as well as passing the online Foundation Umpire Course. Foundation is a paid course on MyNetball and contains five modules to complete. Senior umpires who want to attain National C badge must also attend a rep carnival and are assessed on A3/A4/B1/B2 level.
It is possible to attain more than one level in one season if we get the required matches and opportunities and depending on the availability of the umpire and mentors. We are also asked to help other clubs from time to time. Any court time is valuable experience and the all the club umpire convenors at NSNA work very closely together supporting each other to have matches covered. Remember umpires are UNBIASED so are expected umpire any team to the same standard as they would their own club.
No umpire = match forfeit!
Please contact one of the convenors if you have any questions or would like to join the roster.
Although we would love to be able to appoint a coach to each team, it can be quite challenging to find these coaches. If you, a parent, partner or friend are interested in coaching a team – whether it be a senior or junior team, we would love to hear from you!
You will be giving players the best chance of developing and furthering their skills in the game and may motivate them to go to further heights than they thought they were able.
There are several clinics during the season for to coach the coaches and the Club will subsidise the cost of any clinic or accreditation course attended and also provide any other support needed to help you help our members.
Each team MUST have a Team Manager in Seniors - this is often a player on your team. The main responsibilities of the Manager is to ensure you have enough players each week, bring the kit bag to games and to ensure each player on your team has a BLUE ID card at every game.
Please consult the checklist & responsibilities below for further information.
A team manager roughly gives 1 hour a week to management responsibilities during game season.
