Umpiring at WDNA
WDNA has a very successful beginner umpire program. Twice a year we take on 12 new umpires and work closely with them to teach the skills needed to become a confident and competent umpire.
The program involves four weeks of theory, followed by four weeks working side by side with umpire mentors and finally moving onto independently umpiring their side of the court, with the support of umpire coaches.
Intake of new umpires happens at the beginning of the winter and spring seasons to register your interest in beginning umpiring with WDNA please complete the registration form.
