New Umpires

New Umpires

CDNA has a very successful beginner umpire program. Twice a year we take on 12 new umpires and work closely with them to teach the skills needed to become a confident and competent umpire.

The program involves four weeks of theory, followed by four weeks working side by side with umpire mentors and finally moving onto independently umpiring their side of the court, with the support of umpire coaches.

Intake of new umpires happens twice a year, clubs are contacted when we are taking on new umpires and it will be advertised on the CDNA Facebook page.

If you have any questions or require any further information on umpiring at CDNA please contact us at
