Umpire

At PNA we value the importance of umpires as an integral part of our game. We aim to provide support and learning opportunities for anyone wishing to develop as an umpire.

PNA runs various workshops through out the year aimed at both junior and senior umpires of various abilities. We can also support umpires working towards a badge in the Netball Australia Umpire Accreditation System. 

For more information about umpiring at PNA please contact Jo Gorinski, Umpire Development Officer.
