Our College and Intermediate Comps are a great way to develop your confidence as an advanced Kiwi Whistler, progress towards your Introductory Badge and beyond and keep up your skills and fitness in the pre/off-season while making yourself a little pocket-money!

As of March 2021 the Netball New Zealand Learning & Development portal has been updated to a new and exciting experience for learners called Sport Tutor.  Sport Tutor is designed for all who are involved in netball including coaches, umpires, volunteers, and players and is a great access point for free online workshops and resources.  Access the New Player/Umpire online module via the above link (replaces old Centre Theory Test)

UmpireSmart - Staying Prepared online workshop

Date: Wednesday 8 September 2021
Time: 6:30pm to 8:00pm

Whilst the NWC winter competition has ended, there are still some comps and events coming up (e.g RSSL and men's nationals) so please don't pack your whistle away just yet!

In order to stay ready for when play can resume, Carla (NetballSmart Development Officer) has kindly put an umpire-specific session together for umpires - “Staying Prepared” to support umpires to stay game-ready to safely resume umpiring when matches resume.
