All umpires in the Loughborough Town Netball League must hold a current C award (or above) umpiring qualification.
Any team failing to fulfil their umpiring duties or using an unqualified umpire (without prior agreement and those matches marked with ^) will lose all points for their game (minimum 4 points deducted) and will incur a £20 umpiring fee, to be paid to the 'stand in' umpire.
Umpiring courses are run by East Midlands Netball and are publicised on their website - please visit this site for more information and to register on a course; www.eastmidlandsnetball.co.uk.
Once you have attended a C award course, there are a few more steps to complete before you are ready to take your final assessment. For more detailed information please download the 'C Award Qualification Pathway' opposite. The mentoring scheme detailed here is also available for newly qualified umpires in the league.
For the 2015 - 16 season, scorers will be required for all Premier. First and Second division matches. Each team will need to provide a scorer for their own games, more information can be found in the document opposite.

In order to mentor new umpires, we must be fully versed in the requirements and criteria for the current 'C award' test, or any support given could be potentially damaging for the learner. For those people wishing to mentor and support, please enrol on to an umpires support workshop to bring your knowledge up to date.
