Umpiring

The Netball Australia Umpire Accreditation System is an educational pathway based on Netball Australia Umpiring Courses (Foundation and Elite), ongoing professional development and practical umpiring instruction through an experienced umpire coach system.

Assessment is based on the Rules of Netball Theory Examination, practical evaluation through an established competency-based assessment system, self-reflection and, where possible, video analysis.

The culmination of this accreditation system leads to practical assessment in a 4-tiered system of badges: C, B, A and the highest national award the AA (All Australia).

It is not essential to proceed sequentially through each badge level. The only pre-requisite badge level is an A Badge before testing for an AA Badge.

No age restrictions apply to candidates for any badge level.

Candidates may be tested up to twice in any calendar year for the same badge level.

Coaches and players are also encouraged to complete the course to further support their understanding of the game.

Successful completion of the course provides you with one of the required pre-requisites for a National C Badge.
