Umpiring is not as easy as it looks ! 


Netball umpire responsibilities include conducting inspections and making rule decisions (using clear communication skills).

Umpires are also responsible for ensuring the general health and safety of all the players with extra accountability to spectators who may be watching the game.  Netball umpires focus on enforcing the regulations and controlling fair play in line with England Netball rules. 


There is a lot to think about when you have 14 players on court.
