A current list of umpires is in the Chelmsford & District Netball League Handbook. Please book your umpires using this list with plenty of notice before games, using a suitably qualified umpire for your division:

Division 1 games must be umpired by B Award or above

Division 2 - 8 games must be umpired by C Award or above

Divisions 9 & 10 games must be umpired by Into Officiating or above

Divisions 11 umpires without any qualification may umpire with an aim to pass a test later in the season. 

If your game is cancelled - don't forget to tell your umpire!

Courses & Information

The Senior and Junior Leagues will be running courses this year so there should be something for everyone, so no excuses! All courses will be indoors, the venues and cost to be confirmed. If there is sufficient demand it may be possible to run a course during the week.
