Bench Officials have an important role with the responsibility for ensuring the correct score is recorded, the correct time is played and other match details are documented accurately.

The Netball Australia Bench Officials Accreditation Framework has been designed to assist the development of new Bench Officials through a series of two accreditation levels that relate to the techniques required at the different levels of competition.

The Netball Australia Bench Officials Manual outlines the behavioural requirements and standards of the Bench Official role. Member Organisations are required to utilise these procedures and protocols when hosting National Netball Championships, Australian Netball League and Suncorp Super Netball.

For the Netball Australia Bench Officials Accreditation Framework, Netball Australia Bench Officials Manual, Practical Assessment Forms and Performance Report Templates visit Bench Officials  


To ensure your Bench Officials Accreditation is current the completion of various related tasks is required within a 4 year period, unless a higher level of accreditation is achieved. To update just log in to MyNetball using your MyNetball ID.
