Important Info

Welcome back to our experienced umpires and a big welcome to our new umpires this season.


All email queries are best sent to:
umpiring@phoenixnetball.org.au

We will email details of courses to everyone who identifies at sign on that they wish to umpire.

Umpire Handout for all umpires:

Usually on the Sunday prior to a fixture day you will receive an email from the Convenor advising of your game/s for the coming round.  Please make you note the email address as a safe sender or check your Junk box each week. 

If you know in advance of any particular dates you will not be available to umpire please email in advance.

You will need to confirm back no later than Tuesday night of each week.  If we do not hear from you we will assume you are unable to umpire that game and will allocate it to someone else.  We need to confirm all our allocated umpires and games on the Thursday prior to fixtures directly to DPNA.  A final email of confirmed allocations will be issued to all umpires no later than Friday night of each week.

Under no circumstances is anyone to swap games with another umpire - refer to Convenor in the first instance.
 
Each week you need to sign on at the DPNA desk for your game no less than 20 mins prior to the game starting.  You can sign on sooner if you wish.  You need to make sure you note down the date, time and court number for your umpiring.  DPNA does not keep individual names on their roster, only that a Phoenix umpire is allocated to that game. DPNA may at their discretion swap you on to another game for operational requirements.  

If you are sick and unable to umpire you must contact the Umpire Convenor by text ASAP so an alternative umpire can be found.  If we do not supply an umpire for a game the club is fined by DNPA.  

We will not allocate you to a game we do not feel you are capable of and we have mentors at the courts each week.  As a result some umpires may get more games than others over the season.  We need to adhere to the guidelines set down by DPNA in respect of allocations of umpires to certain standards of games.  If in any doubt look for someone in a white Phoenix Umpire shirt (Convenors and Phoenix National C Badge holders will be wearing these).  

We pay our umpires twice a year in July and September. 
Rates;
National B Badge $25
National C Badge $20
Competitive divisions $15
Non competitive   $10

Umpiring for Other Clubs;
All queries must come via the Umpire Convenors.  If an umpire is approached directly from another club please refer them to the Umpire Convenor in the first instance.
There may be instances that we may involve umpires from other clubs to umpire our games and conversely other clubs may contact us for umpires.  If you umpire for another club it is important that you are representing not only Phoenix but also the other club.  A professional presentation and attitude is expected. 
In most instances you will be paid in cash on the day by the other club involved.  The Umpire Convenor will facilitate.
