The purpose of Netball Victoria’s Umpires in the Field program is to support the existing National Umpire Accreditation Framework by delivering two hour educational workshops designed for umpires at the grassroots level, as well as workshops that are aimed specifically for umpires who would like to work towards a higher accreditation. Workshops are delivered by Netball Victoria’s most experienced Umpire Developers.

Workshop Topics

There are currently three workshops available:

  • Introduction to umpiring
  • Your Decision Counts – (contact/obstruction/advantage)
  • Being Confident with Competencies (mentoring)


All workshop topics run for approximately two hours.


All workshops cost $20.00 per umpire.
