Fixture Allocations

Western Districts Netball Association (WDNA) requests that all Clubs supply an Umpire for each of their games, except for those in A Grade and A Reserve, for which WDNA provide High-Performance Squad umpires. 

Bears has a weekly Umpiring Roster that is determined by umpire availability. The Umpire Coordinator manages this roster and contacts all umpires in the lead up to Saturday matches. It is an expectation that all umpires confirm their allocated games within 24 hours.  Failure to do so, may result in the allocated game being offered to another umpire. 

Bears is responsible for ensuring each umpire is allocated to matches of suitable standard. Accordingly, please contact the Umpire Coordinator prior to swapping matches with another umpire. 

The current Saturday roster can be found on the Kenmore Bears Netball Club website.

On Match Day

Umpires are to wear a predominantly white shirt and white or black skirt or white or black shorts. Alternatively, an umpire may be in Club Uniform, with a white shirt over the top of the uniform.  Appropriate sports footwear must be always worn. 

It is important you are independent, that is have your own whistle, white shirt, drink bottle, copy of the rules etc.

Please arrive at your allocated court no later than 15 mins prior to commencement of the game (or as soon as possible after the completion of your game should you be umpiring or playing prior).

Note, WDNA may at their discretion swap you on to another game for operational requirements.   

Please advise the Umpire Coordinator if this has occurred

Too sick to umpire?  If you are unable to umpire, as you are sick or injured on Match Day, you must contact the Umpire Coordinator by text, as soon as possible, so a replacement umpire may be found.
