Umpiring is very enjoyable and a great way to become more involved in netball as well as earn some extra pocket money. Anyone from 12 years of age can umpire. You don’t need to be the best player to be the best umpire and it helps build confidence in the girls, and boys, who participate.
Umpires are generally rostered on games either before or after their own playing time so doesn’t add a lot of time to their Saturday. New umpires will umpire at 8.00am and 9.05am.
Lindfield Umpires wear the Lindfield uniform to start and upon achieving their low district badge receive a Lindfield Umpire shirt to signify their progress. The club is active in supporting our umpires with assistance and buddies provided over the season. Lindfield’s Umpire Conveners Ashley Beale and Garnet Ho look after the organisation and training of the Lindfield Umpires.
Each team requires a Team Manager. This role can be shared, and is responsible for:
Contact point between the Club and Team
Arrange to borrow players when necessary
Support coach on game day
Rostering other parents to help with duties - Supervision/COVID Marshal for training; Scoring game days; Grounds duty
Our coaches are a combination of Parents, Players and Supporters. We provide coaching support at all playing levels through Coach the Coach sessions, Club Coach support (NetSetGo) and our experienced coaches are always willing to assist with teaching drills and skills. We also provide a coaching development pathway for our teenage players – spending time as an Assistant Coach then moving on to Coach a team either with a partner, or on their own. Our Coaching and Grading Convenors endeavour to match coaches and teams at the start of the season, ensuring each player is given the best opportunity to learn.
Volunteer Your Way
Lindfield Netball Club is a community, and we welcome to you to share your skills with us. We are always looking for new and innovative ways to operate and support our members. Please contact Rod or Benn to discuss opportunities within the committee and our club.
We are currently looking for some tech savvy people to look after our social accounts, organised folks to assist with our Managers, someone to order and organise equipment (kitbags, balls & bibs) and someone who has played and coached over various age groups to assist our NetSetGo Coaches with their skill development.
