Calling on all players turning 13 years or older in 2021!
PLEASE NOTE: We have not yet received information on umpiring from AFLQ at this stage – this information is based on last year’s requirements.
Once we know more information, we will advise further. Please keep checking this website for more details.
Umpire4Fun umpiring opportunities this year will be on Saturdays, with Under 8, Under 9 Mixed, Under 9 Girls, Under 10 Mixed and under 11 girls all playing games mostly on Saturdays but also at times on Friday nights
How would you like to assist your club and get paid for it, and in doing so learn great life skills?
We have a number of Junior Football umpiring positions available for the 2021 season which we invite you to apply for. You don’t need to have experience as we will train you. You will be umpiring the modified games played by the under 8’s through to under 11’s. You don’t need to have elite fitness as these games are played on smaller modified ovals and with quarters lasting only 10 minutes each.
There are many great benefits undertaking a role of umpiring:
- Earn great pocket money
- Keep fit
- Make the game you love your first paying casual job
- Increase your confidence
- Learn leadership skills – Decision Making/Communications/Teaching/Directing others
- The experience will be good for your resume when you want to apply for other future casual and part time jobs
- It may be your first step to a possible career in AFL Umpiring (The elite AFL Field Umpires you see on TV earn from $80,000 – $150,000 per season; Boundary and Goal Umpires earn approximately $60,000)
Umpires will earn $15 for matches where they umpire their own games, and $10 each for jointly umpired matches..
What training is need
There are three one hour sessions in total:
- The first training block is compulsory
- The second training block is also compulsory
- The third training block is optional but is recommended
Umpires need to attend 2 of the 3 sessions to be applicable for a successful completion of accreditation.
