Umpire Development

Umpires are an important part of our game whether it be grassroots here in our association umpiring our local Club or School fixtures right through to representative tournaments on a regional or national stage. 

WHA has various opportunities for umpires with varying levels of experience to contribute to our community. With that WHA has support systems in place to assist and grow our local umpires through various development and mentoring programmes.
