Officiating

At Swiss Netball, we strive to create a community where our officials feel valued and appreciated. We are committed to providing our officials with the opportunities and resources to support their growth and for them to reach their personal goals.

Without officials there can be no game!

There are two types of officials:

1. Match Officials (umpires)

2. Technical Officials (time keepers & score keepers).

By getting involved in officiating you will:

- Improve your netball knowledge as coach / player / spectator,

- Improve your skills and efficiency as a player,

- Improve your self discipline,

- Gain a better understanding of netball and find it more enjoyable.
