The Europe Netball ‘A’ and ‘B’ Written Assessment will be based on the 2020 World Netball Rules and will not cover any modified rules or versions that member countries may have introduced during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Before you attempt to sit the NE B/A Written Assessment, we strongly suggest that you prepare using the practice papers and review the past papers to look at the types of questions and the appropriate way to answer them. Review the rule book, hand signals and the application of the rules of the game. Work with a mentor or another umpire to test your knowledge. Download the practice paper and sit the paper in a simulated exam setting.
