The only compulsory meeting in 2019 is the AGM on 28th July - all other Umpire Development events are not compulsory however we encourage as many umpires as possible to attend so that we are all on the same page regarding rules and interpretations.
The Umpires Written Examination is intended for those umpires wishing to attempt a grading. Others may attend however in 2019 an online rules test will be implemented. More details soon.
Match Protocols for Umpires
A series of match protocols have been developed based on the Netball Australia document produced in 2016. These are now available for viewing and download and are to be implemented in SAUCNA from Summer 2016/17.
