Netball NT Junior Umpire Development Program

As we all know, umpires are an integral component in the game of netball, and the continual development of umpires, especially junior umpires, plays a vital role in the development of the sport as a whole. Since its inception in 2006, the JUDP programme has assisted in seeing 27 junior umpires badged – which is a fantastic effort for those involved in this programme.

Anyone interested in participating in the JUDP from either PNA or DNA should contact either myself or the Netball NT office on (08) 8945 1733. The JUDP program is open to anyone aged 12 – 16 who is available to umpire every Wednesday night throughout the DNA junior competition.
