Whistlers

Whistlers is a great place to start for budding young umpires Year 8 up – no experience is necessary.

Whistlers umpire either on a Thursday or Friday after school, or a Saturday morning – they can choose.  The sessions start with a theory rules session and then the umpires go outside and umpire Year 5-6 to U13 games depending on their level and ability.  Each group of 4 Whistlers has a coach who is there to give advice and assistance.

Thursday/Friday whistlers and helpers meet upstairs in the Oak Room at 3.30 pm starting with a rules session.  We will focus on 1 or 2 specific rules each week. Whistlers will then go out to umpire games at 4 p.m.

Saturday 1st year whistlers and helpers meet upstairs in the Oak Room at 8am for a rules session.  We focus on 1 or 2 specific rules each week.  Whistlers will then go out to umpire at 8.40 a.m.

Saturday 2nd year whistlers and helpers meet upstairs in the Oak Room at 8.50am for a rules session. We focus on 1 or 2 specific rules each week.  Whistlers will then go out to umpire at 9.35am.

Whistler coaches needed

The Whistlers Program is in need of your services to help coach 1st year Whistlers on a Saturday morning.

1st year Whistlers are 6v6 games and start at 8.40am finish at 9.20am. 

We try to have all our coaches as qualified umpires.

This is a way to help young people learn to umpire the sport which we all love, and help them move through to umpire more senior games.

For further information and to become a coach please contact

Pam Ormandy at whistlers@cnc.org.nz or on 0211199439.

Your help will be very much appreciated.
