The Green Shirt Umpiring Program is a practical umpiring course aimed at developing and training beginner umpires, of all ages, to ultimately attain their National C badge.
Introduced to netball associations in 2007, the program has continued to grow, introducing an increasing number of individuals to umpiring and assisting to develop their umpiring. As an association we are strongly encouraging Juniors and the mature athlete to enrol along with coaches, parents and spectators alike.
Enrolments for this program will be the Winter 2019 Season – watch this space!
