Become an Official

 

All MNZ permitted events need trained officials to make them fun, fair and safe for all involved. As an official representative of MNZ, you’ll have the opportunity to lead the direction of the sport and influence its future. 

The various officials’ roles are described in Chapter 3 of the MoMS. It’s easy to get started – simply let your local club know you’re interested, get involved in their events and complete the officials training.

Whatever grade you aspire to reach, you’ll need to be conversant with the rules in the MoMS and abide by the Code of Conduct
