Umpire

Umpiring at Randwick Netball Association

Umpiring is an integral part of our game. Umpires provide the opportunity for everyone to play the game in a safe, fair and enjoyable environment. Everyone has a role to play in ensuring that we create a culture at Randwick where our umpires are a respected part of our netball community

The RNA Umpire’s Committee is responsible for allocating umpires to A1 and A2 games and to representative opportunities (rep carnivals, State Championship and State Age Championship competitions) as well as for the supervision of umpires for National Badging. The RNA Umpire’s Committee is a resource to the clubs to assist them in their endeavours to develop their umpires.

Clubs are responsible for providing umpires who are of a suitable standard for the teams that they enter into the winter competition. The RNA Umpire’s Committee can support the clubs in the development of umpires and provide information to umpires on the pathways that are available to them.

Dress Code

A neatly presented umpire looks professional and in control of the game. Umpires at RNA must wear club uniform (tracksuit or playing dress) or whites (shorts, tracksuit pants or skirt and white polo) when umpiring games. Leggings and hoodies are not allowed. Suitable footwear must be worn.
