The purpose of the Academy is to provide a pathway of high-quality training and ongoing support for the Waikato Umpire and Umpire Coach Community.
The end goal is to create a structured pathway of facilitated training and development that has both online, in person, and practical assessment elements. By creating a pathway and program for Umpire Coaches, it helps to facilitate support and collaboration between umpires and umpire coaches, one needs the other to participate.
The Academy will take time to build, especially to develop the online capability, but WHA is committed to developing the Academy and bringing it to life over time.
