Umpire Information

Pine Hills Netball Club has a strong base of umpires of all ages and abilities. Our umpires start with junior games and are mentored by our senior umpires to gain experience. Umpires are required to complete training through online modules, courses at Downey Park and practical experience at Pine Hills Netball Club. 

Many of our umpires have progressed to successfully attain their National C Badge. Our senior umpires are often selected to umpire DPNA finals, umpire at State Carnivals and to umpire at the State Netball Centre.

Anyone is eligible to start umpiring the year they turn 13, provided they have already had at least 2 years experience playing in a competitive competition. 

In the 2024 winter season, non-competitive games will be umpired by the team coach, however we are always seeking 12 year old players who are interested in umpiring and supporting our coaches to umpire non-competitive games.

If you are interested in umpiring for Pine Hills, or if you have any other questions, please contact our Umpire Convenor.
