Experienced Umpires

Experienced umpires may wish to request to be tested for National Badges.

Please note: You will need to pay online to complete the course which is the minimum requirement for badging.  Upon completion email your certificate and receipt to umpiring@kenmorebearsnetball.com.au and we will refund the amount in the subsequent round of umpire payments. 

·        Hold a current and appropriate pass mark in the Rules of Netball Theory Exam –

o   B Badge - 80% or above

Note: Pass marks are valid for 4 years.

Refer National Umpire Development Framework 2020 for further information.


Mentoring Available

Please make contact with the Umpire Coordinator if you wish to be mentored towards badging. 
We have experienced National Badged umpires who are there to assist and provide mentoring for all umpires and those who are nearing National Badge testing. 
There is an expectation that once an umpire has a National Badge that you will be available to assist with mentoring of less experienced umpires. 

National Badge Testing

Once an umpire has been assessed by a suitable official as being ready for testing Kenmore Bears must supply a formal written request to WESTS.  WESTS then at their discretion may watch the umpire for all or part of a game over the subsequent weeks.  This is sometimes called screening and is done on higher levels of games.    

Following notification by Kenmore Bears to WESTS the actual badging process requires WESTS to register a testing panel with Netball Queensland.  Independent and Nationally Badged umpires are used to adjudicate. This must be performed on games of 4 x 15mins quarters and you are tested and graded over the entire game.  
Panel testing is undertaken on high division Intermediates (usually Div 1) or Opens games (no lower than Opens Div 3).
