Training & Courses

MWNA provides neutral umpires to all games (except Nettas). All teams (U12s and above) from every club are allocated umpiring duties throughout the regular season (Rounds 1-14) plus the finals playoffs. When allocated an umpiring duty, a team must supply the two umpires for the allocated game. MWNA imposes penalties for failure to fulfil umpiring duties.
