COME AND JOIN OUR UMPIRING PANEL AT RICHMOND
We are keen to keep netballers involved in all facets of the sport and are proud to provide a
very successful Umpire Mentor Program. If you are interested in umpiring, you are required to complete the
Umpires Theory Exam prior to starting your training. The Foundation Umpires Course will need to be completed approx 6 - 8 weeks after your training has commenced (when you have a better
understanding and command of game management). No age restrictions apply.
Umpires Theory Exam
The Umpires Theory Exam is now available online. Candidates are able to sit the exam at any time. 100 questions will be
available for each online exam. The questions will be randomly selected and each exam will be different. Candidates must score a minimum of 70% in order to attempt their "C" grade badge.

Foundation Umpire Course
The Foundation Umpire Course is the second pre-requisite required for obtaining a National
C Badge. Log into MyNetball to complete the Foundation Umpire Course.
Coaches are also encouraged to complete the course to further support their understanding
of the game.
All umpires must ensure that they are financial members of Netball Victoria before they
take the court to umpire. If umpires take the court whilst not a financial member, they are not covered by the Member to Member cover (where one member takes legal action against another member
for injury caused), and the Association is also not covered by the Professional Indemnity cover.
