Have you ever considered picking up a whistle and becoming an umpire?
As an umpire you have the best seat in the house at every game! It’s a great way for players and coaches to increase their rule knowledge; plus for those who have hung up their bib, why not pick-up a whistle – it’s a great way to stay involved!
The good news is, to get started all you need to bring is a bit of enthusiasm and a passion for the game - we’ll take care of rest and give you the tools and support you need to become an umpire.
We offer a supportive environment for all umpires. If you have the ambition to be on the NNZ umpire pathway and have goals to umpire at the highest level we can support you to help develop and achieve your goals. Workshops, feedback after Saturday games, and coaching are all ways in which you can develop your umpiring skills throughout the season.
Our website contains a collection of resources to suit any level of umpire; ranging from player-umpires through to those wishing to gain NZ B/C qualification. Tournament dates, opportunities to develop your umpire skills, as well as specific dates for fitness, Zone theory and NZ theory tests will be listed on our Umpires Calendar.
