Second date added - Thursday 16th May 6.30pm to 8.30pm at Hataitai Pavilion.

Umpiring 101 Workshop
Perfect for all our affiliated school, club and satellite umpires, coaches, managers and player-umpires!

Aims to help build confidence, refresh your umpire knowledge prior to the start of the season and provide answers to any fiddly questions or scenarios you may have experienced in the past. Also discusses interpretation of any recently updated rules.

Held at the Hataitai Netball Pavilion & Courts, 43 Ruahine Street, Hataitai

Workshops open for all to attend:
* Wednesday 1st May 6.30pm to 8.30pm
* Thursday 16th May 6.30pm to 8.30pm

Please bring $2.00 per participant in change on the night which will be collected upon sign-in at the door (sorry no Eftpos or credit cards facilities available).

Spaces are limited! Given the popularity of this one-off opportunity we recommend that you register promptly to secure your space and avoid disappointment.

Come along and you'll get the chance to:
* Learn the rules of the game
* Talk about your umpiring fears
* Gain handy tips on how to handle over-zealous spectators
* Come to grips with how to become more confident on the side line
* Talk through fiddly situations or scenarios
* Pick up some of the hand signals, learn where best to position yourself and how to blow your whistle correctly
* Opportunity to complete the Centre test bank theory if keen
* Ask questions in a safe environment – there are likely to be
others in the room wanting to ask the same questions so no question is considered a silly one!
