Umpires and Technical Officials

Technical Officials - JOIN US!

Technical Officials and Statisticians have an important role to play in our game. They are responsible for the accurate recording of the score, player statistics and the timing of the game.

In Nelson our Technical Officials provide a bench for our NBS Premier Competition, which is played on Thursday evenings at 6:15pm or 7:45pm. 

Do you have good concentration, attention to detail, an ability to work under pressure and love working as part of a team?

If you answered yes – why not become a technical official or statistician!
