There are established pathways for umpires from Centre level all the way through to the elite international umpires.
But starting out in umpiring begins with attending classes. In these classes you study the rules and discuss their practical application. You also learn about the correct body stance and getting the best vision for umpiring the game. Classes can be a compact full day session or a series of four or five 1½ hour sessions usually weekly in the evenings. There is a written exam at the end of the course and passing this will start you on your way to becoming a Netball Umpire.
