Maddies Netball Club provides umpires each Saturday for Junior Yr 2/3 teams and all Intermediate and Senior teams.
Where available, badged umpires will be allocated for Div 1 games in the Senior and Intermediate grades. This depends on the availability of qualified umpires and the number of teams in Division 1 Inters and Seniors.
TNA provides Umpire Information sessions throughout the season. The TNA Umpires Coordinator allocates umpires from a pool of Junior Rep players from Under 12's to U 15's each Saturday to umpire Grades 4, 5 and 6 in the Junior Competition.
The Maddies NC Umpires Coordinator allocates umpires to all Maddies teams participating in the Inters and Senior competitions. Our umpires are paid for each game during the season on a scale set by the committee and is dependent on experience and qualifications.
If you wish to be a Maddies Umpire for the winter competition please contact the club by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
Becoming an umpire is now very easy; a Level One umpires course is available on line as a cost of $25 which Maddies will reimburse if you complete the course and present the club with your certificate. This course can be found on the Netball ACT website.
At Maddies we mentor our umpires regardless of age and our umpires are strongly encouraged to sit the on-line theory exam, which can be accessed from the Netball Australia Website. This exam along with an assessed, low pressure practical umpiring session or game will get you to a National C Badge qualification.
If you require any information, support or coaching to develop your umpiring skills please contact us, we encourage parents as well as players to get involved in our umpiring program.
