IWSNA are looking for umpires who would like to move up the badging pathway. One of the best ways to get coaching from nationally badged umpires is to attend Sunday Representative Carnivals where you get coached on high quality games and put what you are learning into practice. Transport can be provided for any interested umpires. Travel expenses are paid to all accepted umpires of $50 per day. See dates below. If interested, please let me know asap.

The International Federation of Netball Associations recently announced a change to the Official Rules of Netball (2007) relating to coaching during stoppages (effective 1 Jan 2011).The change to the rule means that coaching will be allowed during intervals and stoppages.
New: 3.4.2 Team Officials and bench players may coach while play is in progress provided that they remain seated or stand at their Team Bench. Coaching is also allowed during intervals (refer Rules 2.1 and 2.2) and during Stoppages (refer Rule 7). Team Officials and bench players may not indulge in inappropriate comments or behaviour (refer Rules 20 (iv) and 20.1.2).
New: RULE 7: STOPPAGES Coaching is permitted during any Stoppage by any Team Official who may approach the players at the Side Line. Bench players may approach the Side Line if coaching occurs. During a Stoppage any Team Official may approach the players at the Side Line for the purpose of providing rehydration. (Refer Rule 3, 7, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3).
ONLINE MENTORING COURSE
The Online Mentoring Course has been launched on the Netball Australia website. Netball Australia in conjunction with the Australian Sports Commission is pleased to launch an online mentoring course for coaches, umpires and officials. Mentoring is a highly effective way for coaches, umpires and officials to learn the 'art' of their role, and apply theory that they may have learnt in a classroom or through independent study. Mentoring relationships can be formally structured, with mentors assigned to officials, or they can grow out of a chance encoutner with a like-minded person and remain very informal.
