Adult Beginner Umpire Program
This program presents an alternative training opportunity for 6-10 future umpires aged 18+ to learn to umpire over a 6 week course on Thursday nights 4-7pm (specific times TBC) at Duncan McKinnon Reserve starting Thursday 28th of April.

Our community thrives on a fantastic group of umpires between the ages of 14 and 90, however the majority of our umpires are between the ages of 14 and 24. To keep netball competitions running smoothly, we are looking to boost numbers in the community by providing alternative training options for mums, dads, uni students, players and other community volunteers who would like to give umpiring a go.
