Unsure about umpiring? Attend an Umpiring 101 Workshop!

Umpiring 101 Workshop
Perfect for all our affiliated school and club 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 updated rules introduced in 2018.

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

Three workshop dates open for all to attend:
Thursday 22nd March from 6.30pm to 8.30pm
Monday 9th April from 6.30pm to 8.30pm
Wednesday 2nd May from 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!

We ask that you please register prior to the day so that we can ensure we have the right number of resources available for all attendees.

Once spaces are full, a waiting list may be established where necessary.
In the event that you find you can no longer attend and need to withdraw, we ask that you promptly advise via email to admin@netballwellington.co.nz or phone 387 6017 to allow your space to be offered to other keen umpires/players.

Comment Guidelines: The SportsTG Network is made up of players, families and passionate sports followers like you who have a strong opinion about sport. That's great - we want you to have your say and share your thoughts with the world. However, we have a few rules that you must follow to keep it fun for all. Please don't be rude, abusive, swear or vilify others. Apart from some pretty serious sport sanctions, we also can ban you and report you if things get out of hand. So play fair and have fun, and thanks for your contribution.
