This is a development program for those umpires that have achieved their National C Badge and wish to further develop their skills. We have 4 levels within the Academy ensuring that all umpires are allocated to the games appropriate to their level whilst allowing them to further develop their skills. In 2016 we have 9 umpires that have come through our programs and are currently invited into State League Squad or State League Academy,with 4 umpires being allocated to either the 2016 U21s, U19s or U17s Nationals.

Coaching by highly experienced umpire coaches is given throughout the 15 weeks season along with free access to workshops throughout the season and the chance to develop your skills off court by learning how to umpire coach and help out the new green shirts.  An umpiring polo is also provided.
