Worksafe Umpires in the Field
Due to the recent restrictions created around COVID- 19, we are exploring options for online workshops. Stay tuned!
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.
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
