CONGRATULATIONS SOPHIE

IMG_2717Congratulations to our own Sophie Barton, who was awarded her Umpiring “Gold Association Award” yesterday after completing her practical test.

Sophie has been working hard on her umpiring over the off season by attending the WDNA Umpiring Development Program and receiving extra mentoring at carnivals.

Great to see hard work being rewarded by being awarded the highest Association Award.  Well done Soph!

Remember to thank all our umpires after the games –   “It takes a lot of time and hard work to become a confident umpire and just a few inappropriate comments from the sideline to crush that enthusiasm”

WEEK 3 REVIEW

After week 3 WDNA do a review of the teams to try to make the divisions as even as possible.  This can result in some teams being moved or some divisions having a bye.  The new draw is now on the WDNA website.  There is a link on the right hand side of our website if you would like to check your team.

Check out our new Umpiring Assignment system.  To see if you or your team is umpiring, hover over the top tab “Umpiring” and click on “Umpiring Assignment”.   The dates for the games are down the bottom of the page.

Good luck tomorrow – GO RANGERS!

WELL DONE UMPIRES

Great job by all our umpires on Saturday – thank you to everyone for making an effort to appreciate our umpires on “Umpires Appreciation Day”.

This season Rangers are developing a new Umpires Policy which rewards people willing to umpiring.  We are looking for anyone interested in umpiring and are willing to commit to regular games and coaching.   You don’t need to know how to umpire – we will provide the training.  Please see Sharon Serow at training tomorrow night.

UMPIRE APPRECIATION DAY – 10 MAY

imagesTo recognise the important role umpires have in the game of netball, Wests are hosting an “Umpire Appreciation Day” this Saturday.  The aim of this day is to raise the umpire profile at Wests and give our valued umpires some acknowledgement for their dedication, commitment and the courage they show in picking up a whistle and having a go to learn what is often a difficult and daunting task.

We aks all players, coaches and spectators to especially acknowledge umpires on  Saturday.  You do this by simply thanking your umpire after the game, or by showing appreciation in some other way.

Remember NO UMPIRE – NO GAME!
