Caumaitoga says the clinic is aimed and developing younger umpires and officials to take the leading role for netball in the future.
“You notice we’ve targeted the young age group between 15 and 18 and the reason why we are targeting the younger girls is because they can go a long way and achieve their highest achievement which is New Zealand badge.”
