Umpiring Tips

Netta Rules

(modified 7, 8 and 9 years)

Netta is different to regular rules in the following instances:

1. Two rings - goals count no matter what goal the ball goes through

2. Players must give 4 feet

3. Only one player can defend the player with the ball at one time

4. Players do not stand beside - please explain what they are doing and reposition them in the correct spot

5. Players have 6 seconds to release the ball.

All other rules follow the same as the full rule games.

Scoring a Goal

A goal is scored when the ball is thrown or batted over and completely through the ring by Goal Shooter or Goal Attack from any point within the Goal Circle including the lines bounding the Goal Circle.

1. if another player throws the ball through the ring no goal is scored and play continues

2. if a defending player deflects a shot for goal and the ball then passes over and completely through the ring a goal is scored

3. if the ball is won at a Toss Up in the Goal Circle, the Goal Shooter or Goal Attach may either shoot for goal or pass

4. If the whistle for an interval or 'time' is blown before the ball has passed completely through the ring, no goal is scored

5. if the whistle for an interval or 'time' is blown after a Penalty Pass / Shot has been awarded in the Goal Circle, the Penalty Pass / Shot shall be taken

Control Sign-On

Please ensure you sign on at Umpires Control no later than 10 mins before your allocated game.

If the court or grade is different to what is on our sheet, please ask someone from the BHSNA umpires committee. Also, if you are called to Control, please do not IGNORE it. If you can't go, ask someone you know to go for you - do not send a child under 12.

Should our umpires not sign on, the club will be FINED for an umpire missing.

More TIPS relating to rules to come soon!!

“A Throw in, is a throw in, is a throw in”

Example:  Team A throws in but her foot was on the line, then Team B, throws in.  if team B then has their foot on the line - then Team A throws in.
