    Your commitment would be required for one game night per week (Tuesday) and in most cases, one training night per week (Monday, Wednesday or Thursday, at your club's discretion), along with associated planning. 

    Training and development opportunities will be provided throughout the season to help you develop your experience level.

    Watch this space for dates and details of training opportunities.

    Home Hardware Umpiring Squad

    The Hedland Home Hardware Umpiring Squad helps us to continually develop fantastic umpires in our Association.

    Squad Umpires are rostered to umpire matches on a regular basis, and receive training and development opportunities right throughout the year. We help our umpires achieve more - we currently have one National B Badged umpires and eight National C Badged umpires in our fold.

    And being a Squad Umpire can also help put some cash in your pocket... if you're interested in getting involved in another aspect of netball, and making some extra cash while you're at it, why not join the Squad? We'd love to have you!
