Coloured Shirt Program
Garville runs a Coloured Shirt Program (CSP) for new umpires. This program is aimed at those new to umpiring, with a distinctive shirt provided to identify CSP umpires as 'learners' and encourage patience and support by spectators, players, and coaches, providing a safe and supportive environment for beginner umpires to develop. As part of our commitment to this program, Garville provides extensive training as well as mentoring and support at games for all CSP umpires.

To play for Garville we ask only that girls train regularly, give their best when training or playing, and respect their team mates, opponents, coaches and supporters. Our aim is to always select competitive, well-balanced teams, while giving each player the chance to make the best of their ability and feel a part of their team.

Garville usually places 5-7 teams in each of the competitions (except GO) during winter and summer. The exact number depends on how many potential players we have, and how many coaches and umpires.
