This award was first presented in 2011 in memory of Jodie Ridges. Jodie played with our Association on Saturdays and also in the Mid Week Competition on Thursday mornings. She was an avid umpire who umpired each and every competition the SNA held - Saturdays, Midweek, A grade and Night Comp.
The recipient of the award can be either an on court umpire or an ex umpire who continues to support the Shepparton Netball Association by mentoring/testing during the night competition. Quite often they are both an umpire and a mentor/tester.
