New Umpires

All the information New Umpires require can be found on this page!

Getting Started

Thank you for expressing interest in umpiring for The Gap Netball Club. Umpiring is a great way to continue developing your understanding of the game. It increases your confidence and is an opportunity to make new friends in the club. New umpires must be at least 13 years old. They require a white shirt which you can purchase from the Ashgrove drapery with the club’s logo on it or online through our website. They also require a metal finger whistle to umpire with. To keep track of who’s center pass is it umpires should always have a hair tie or scrunchie on them whilst umpiring.


All umpires are required to umpire one session at the clubs grading. Beginner umpires are to umpire the U11 sessions. This is a great opportunity for new umpires to gain some experience and confidence in umpiring before taking the court at Downey Park Netball Association on Saturdays. If possible, new umpires are encouraged to attend two sessions to ensure they have received enough training to feel confident taking control of a game. 


Before taking the court to umpire all new umpires must complete an online examination and receive a 70% score or above. MyNetball is changing for the 2022 netball season. All netball courses are now on Netball Learning. Here is the link to the Rules of Netball Examination: https://learning.netball.com.au/login/.        


All new umpires will have a mentor present for majority of their first three games at Downey Park Netball Association.
