The purpose of the Worksafe 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.

Netball Victoria is excited to announce the introduction of these workshops in an online format via Zoom.

Whilst places are strictly limited, we will continue to add dates and workshops in the coming weeks to allow for as many umpires as possible to attend these workshops. Dates will be added to the NV calendar regularly. 2020 Netball Victoria members are offered a 25% discount on workshop costs.

There are currently 3 workshops available:

1. Introduction to Umpiring

This workshop is aimed at beginners with very little umpiring experience.

2. Mentor Workshop

The Mentor workshop looks at the skills and knowledge needed to guide and progress umpires through the different stages of their pathway. Please note that this workshop has an emphasis on mentoring beginning umpires.

3. Your Decision Counts

This workshop looks at the decision's umpires have to make in relation to Contact vs Contest vs Advantage. It is aimed at C Badge umpires working towards a B Badge Accreditation and B Badge Umpires. Please note that due to a limited pool of presenters for this workshop, it may take longer to lock in an Umpire Developer, please give us as much notice as possible when submitting an application.

All workshop topics run for approximately two hours.

All workshops cost $20.00 per umpire.

all participants MUST register and pay PRIOR to attending the workshop. Registrations and payment will not be accepted on the day of the workshop.

All upcoming workshops can be found on the Netball Victoria Umpiring Calendar
