Officiating Courses

The Officials are the third team on court, without whom the game would not happen. England Netball supports it’s extensive playing programme with a fully developed officiating department offering assistance from grass roots up to the elite international level.

Officiating Courses and Mentoring support are available across the South Region. Both Beginner and C award courses are organised by the County Netball Associations whilst B award courses are organised regionally.
