The Officials are the third team on court, without whom the game would not happen
With roles as umpires and scorers there is something for everyone!
Anyone over the age of 12 can become an official. The game doesn’t just need young umpires or technical officials. Current or ex-players with a wealth of experience at various levels make excellent officials, some of whom have started in their late 30’s and now officiate in England Netball competitions, something they may never have achieved as a player.
Irrespective of your age, ability, or experience at playing netball, if you have a passion for the game and can successfully complete England Netball’s Into Officiating or C Award Course you can start your journey to becoming a netball umpire.
New officials learn by getting out there and having a go. Speak to Ann Halliwell about how you can get involved (firstname.lastname@example.org).
