Intimidation and harassment are two issues that can “scare” people away from becoming netball umpires. Netball SA has policies and procedures in place to assist umpires when they are faced with difficult situations.
If you are an umpire experiencing intimidation and harassment from players, spectators or the coach never ever be afraid to hold the game and seek assistance from the court supervisor. If there is no court supervisor, seek help from a senior umpire. You should never have to deal with intimidation and harassment issues on your own.
