Umpire rosters are on the information board in the netball shed. This year we will be trialing a new system, which will encourage players to nominate which game they would like to umpire during the year, making it easier to fit in to everyone’s lifestyle. Any problems with the roster must be dealt with between the player and the executive committee, prior to the game day. There will be a $15 fee if you choose not to do your umpiring shift. If you are interested in becoming a club umpire we can help train you and offer umpiring courses through the GSNA.
