Welcome to Autumn 2013
Please do not put trainees or unbadged umpires on Under 9 games. The umpire should be there to assist the players to learn and enjoy netball and they are very difficult games to umpire well.
- Umpires for games at 1.50pm, 2.40pm & 3.30pm are pooled; umpires need to sign in and get their court before umpiring. With the grading games (ie. 2 games each timeslot); umpires will be allocated a court and will stay on that court for both games. There are to be 3 weeks of grading games.
- Any trainee umpires that were on the training program last year should be put onto the pooled games, if possible, and any learner umpires that you would like to be observed should be put on 12.10pm & 1.00pm games - please let me know their court beforehand.
- I would love your weekly rosters as I can prepare the umpires/games before the Saturday.
- The first week is always quite difficult so please ask if there is anything I can do to help - 0419 513 175 or email - I do have names of umpires looking for games.
Could you pass this information to your umpire coordinator in your club as I do not have updated lists yet.
See you all on Saturday,
