Calling on all budding umpires turning 12 years or older in 2023!
Umpire4Fun umpiring opportunities this year are available at the Cats! Under 9 Girls and Under 11 Girls on Friday Nights, and Under 8, Under 9, Under 10 and Under 11 Mixed competitions on Saturdays
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 2022 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 U8 to U10 and U11 Girls matches where they umpire their own games, or $10 each for jointly umpired matches
- $25 for U11 Boys matches where they umpire on their own, or $15 each for jointly umpired matches.
What training is needed
Training sessions will start in late March / Early April, and there are umpiring information sessions at various clubs on the Gold Coast all throughout the season. We encourage all club umpires to attend the training sessions.
