Young Officials

This course is a fantastic way for pupils to develop their leadership skills through the sport of netball and football. Each group were asked to reflect on the qualities they feel it is important that leaders should have, as well as what specific equipment they need.

After going through some of the basic rules and being armed with whistles both groups were given the opportunity to put their skills into practice. The Partnership provided yellow T shirts to each pupil, as part of their umpiring uniform, and to help make them stand out in their leadership role.

It was fantastic to see so many students improve their knowledge of netball/football rules and positions and start developing leadership skills which are so important in many aspects of life. In total approx. 40  pupils completed the course and are now CSP Young Netball/football officials!

The netball YOs went on to officiate at the 1.5 netball festival in the afternoon where they put into effect what they had learned.

Congratulations to all involved!
