Bench Officials have an important role to play – they are responsible for ensuring the correct score is recorded, the correct time is played and other match details are recorded 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.
Netball SA is required to utilise these procedures and protocols when hosting Netball Australia National Championships, Suncorp Super Netball League and Australia Netball League, and aims to utilise them also for all other appropriate matches.
How to become a Bench Official in four easy steps:
- Must be a registered member of Netball SA.
- Complete the Bench Officials Online Education Course.
- Sit the Section 1 Theory Exam, Netball Australia Online Centre.
