We need umpires!

Think you know the laws of the game?

The AFL has launched a new initiative to encourage people to consider umpiring.

Lets face it, our children couldn’t play if we didn’t have umpires. Its a thankless job, but one which is absolutely essential.

Umpiring is Everyone's Business (2012 - high res)

Some of the advantages include:

  • Males and Females, young or old!
  • No Experience Necessary
  • FREE coaching and mentoring
  • Earn $20 – $65 per game, each weekend April to September.
  • Must be 13 years of age.
  • Umpire a game in the morning before you play.
  • Develop confidence, leadership and decision making skills.
  • Boundary and Goal umpiring opportunities also available.

There are umpiring groups located all over Sydney with weekly training throughout the season to teach you all you need to know. Locations include:

Sydney Harbour North Shore (Frenchs Forest)
Sydney Harbour North West (Baulkham Hills)
Sydney Harbour City (TBC)
Sydney Harbour South (Penshurst)
Western Sydney (Camden)
Western Sydney (Carnes Hill)
Western Sydney (Rooty Hill)
Western Sydney (Emu Plains)
