Help for umpires

ABOUT 40 umpires attended the two-day workshop in Suva organised by Fiji Netball to increase the profile of refereeing in the country.

Umpires from around the country were subjected to theory lessons and practicals were held during the Nasinu and Suva Association club games on Friday and yesterday respectively.

National Umpires Co-ordinator Gabrielli Qoro said the workshop was necessary for the development of the sport in the country.

"This workshop is mainly for Fiji netball umpires and it's the first time that New Zealand Umpires Development Manager Dianne McTigue conducted the session with her assistant Jan Skilton," he said.

"This workshop is very important as the Fiji Netball umpiring structure is under Oceania Netball and our Fiji umpires need to go through this training and understand the pathway of Oceania.

"They (McTigue and Skilton) are here to see our Fiji national umpires who were assessed and coached practically during the Nasinu Netball competition on Friday evening and Suva Netball Association on Saturday."

Qoro thanked all those who helped in the success of the workshop.

"This is the first time that these two ladies are conducting a workshop of this nature and we are so thankful to them for giving up their time during their holidays here in Fiji, to be able to squeeze in this workshop where the local umpires will benefit from.

"Many thanks as well to Netball Fiji for enabling us to host the facilitators from New Zealand and also to the Fiji National Sports Commission for funding this workshop."
