    Mentoring at Raiders

    • At Raiders we take pride in our umpires and aim to provide them with every opportunity to develop their skills. One of the ways we do this is through mentoring and support. All our mentors are experienced National Badged Umpires who are available to assist developing umpires, particularly as they approach their National Badge or WDNA award assessments. It is expected that once Badged, umpires will be available to assist less experienced umpires in reaching their goals.
