WDNA Umpire Program

2024 High Performance & Development Umpiring Program

2024 EOI High Performance & Development Squad Umpires

Expressions of interest for the 2024 WDNA Umpire High Performance Program and Umpire Development Squad are now open.

The Umpire High Performance Program is aimed at National B umpires and umpires close to attaining their National B. Umpires will be allocated to WDNA A Grade and A Reserve fixture games and will receive regular coaching and development opportunities.

The Umpire Development Squad is aimed at National C umpires who are looking to consolidate their knowledge and start working towards the next level. Umpires will receive coaching on their club allocated games and Monday night social competition.

Umpires in both programs will have the opportunity to attend theory sessions during the season as well as practical coaching.

As part of the program, an umpire education workshop will be held on Saturday 3 February 2024. Please save the date in your calendar.

WDNA Umpire Award

The WDNA Umpire Award is an association based award designed to encourage beginner umpires.  This Award is only recognised at WDNA and is not a prerequisite for a National Badge.  Club Umpires at this level are developing umpire skills, techniques and practical application of the Rules.  Umpires should be encouraged to continue towards their National C Badge.


Umpires will be required to have a 70% pass in the Rules of Netball Theory Exam and have completed a Basic Umpire Course.  The assessment panel shall consist of 2 Assessors, one of whom must be a Nationally recognised tester.  The second panel member can be an umpire who is learning to be a National Tester (ie an umpire who has not yet held their badge for two years) or an interested association umpire.  This will give inexperienced testers an opportunity to develop their skills and broaden their knowledge.
