Updating for on Court Umpires

We require all of our on court umpires to complete a series of tasks over the four year period after they've successfully attained their Netball Australia C, B, A or AA Badge.  

We recommend that all umpires continue to upgrade their knowledge, skills and competencies after they've attained their badge.  Staying up-to-date maintains the overall quality of umpires in netball and makes sure they are provided with ongoing education and development opportunities.

Our ongoing education and development opportunities cover areas such as:

  • The lastest information on developments in netball;
  • Rules knowledge and current interpretations;
  • Access to the most up-to-date techniques and skills relating to umpiring.

Maintaining your Accreditation

We require umpires to reach a certain number of points of updating activity to maintain their accreditation at the relevant badge level.  For the A and AA badge, umpires must successfully complete a practical assessment as well.

50% of the required updating should be completed through on court umpiring.  Practical umpiring can be undertaken at any level and may occur on a regular basis (weekly, fortnightly) or in specific situations such as camps, carnivals etc.

The successful completion of the Rules of Netball Theory Exam (pass mark as required for the badge being updated) is a mandatory updating requirement for all badge levels.
