Updating your accreditation just got easier!
Umpires can now update their accreditation online through MyNetball.
By moving to an online updating system, Netball Australia are reducing the administration for the Member Organisations and you, our learner. We’ll be able to easily see whose accreditation is up-to-date and be able to point you in the right direction for ongoing education and development opportunities.
*Please note as of July 1st Netball Victoria will no longer be accepting Accreditation Updating Forms. Umpires will need to follow the below online updating process*
We require all of our on court umpires to complete a series of tasks over a 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 latest information on developments in netball
- Rules knowledge and current interpretations
- Access to the most up-to-date techniques and skills relating to umpiring
The following guides will assist you in renewing your Badge once expired:
Log in to MyNetball using your MyNetball ID.
Click on the learning tab and select online learning.
Click the blue button browse available courses.
Click on the My Accreditation Updating button.
Select your accreditation from the list.
Follow the on-screen instructions to review and update your accreditation.
Request the update. This will be automatically sent to our team to review, and we’ll send you an email once it has been confirmed.
Here’s a couple of things you’ll need to know. You can also find the answers to more frequently asked questions via Netball Australia’s website here.
How does it work?
Our accreditation updates work on a points system. So, when you’re updating your accreditation you need to make sure you’ve reached the relevant number of points within four years of gaining your current accreditation.
When is the best time to apply for an accreditation update?
You can only apply for an update within six months of your current accreditation expiry date. MyNetball will prompt you.
Do I need to have anything on hand?
When you’re updating your accreditation, it’s a good idea to have a list of any practical umpiring activities on hand. You can add this information by completing the relevant fields in step six.
I’m not sure how to update my accreditation.
That’s OK. Take a look at our Updating Criteria PDFs for umpires. You can view or download this by using the link below.

Umpire Presenters, Testers & Mentors that are no longer umpiring must hold a current (within the last 4 years) Rules of Netball Theory Exam pass mark relevant to their badge level to be eligible to present and/or test as part of the National Umpire Accreditation System.
