Officiating Update

The Gloucestershire Officiating Group is responsible for the education and training of umpires and officials. We are focused on trying to improve the standard of officiating at all of our Gloucestershire games, and beyond that, should umpires choose to officiate at a higher level.

As of October 2012, we are working with a number of umpires who are looking to improve their skills, either at their current level or by progressing to the next level. We've had a lot of interest from umpires this season, so please bear with us; we are working as quickly and efficiently as possible to get to everyone.

The breakdown of umpires who have asked for mentoring is:

  • Beginners 35
  • C Awards 21
  • B Awards 10

Gloucestershire coaches head to Jersey’s Academies

On 29th September Gilly Salter and Katie Noonan headed over to Jersey to coach the Islands Satellite and County Academies. The Gloucestershire coaches touched down in sunny Jersey bright and early on the Saturday and headed straight to Les Ormes, Jersey’s brand new netball facility, near St Brelade. Here they delivered a three hour session to the Satellite Academy. The session also provided a chance for Jersey coaches to see first-hand, new coaching concepts and practices from England Netball.

Sunday was another beautiful day and again Gilly and Katie headed to Les Ormes for their second session with the Islands talented youngsters. The Jersey County Academy athletes were put through their paces with a high intensity ball skills and decision making session. After the two and a half hour session many girls likened it to ‘Netball brain training’.
