THE GREEN SHIRT PROGRAM
This program aims to provide Associations with the tools and support that enable Green Shirt Program Coordinators to effectively support beginner umpires. This program also aims to create and develop the supportive culture required to make umpiring a valued and attractive pathway to engagement and participation in netball. Alongside the Green Shirt Program, each Association received a Community Umpire Toolkit from Netball Australia to support the implementation of this program and engagement with your participants. This Toolkit provides access to individual interactive education sessions that may be integrated into your Green Shirt Program. To download and for more information visit: Community Umpire Toolkit
