Get in the Game: Umpires wanted for 2020
Are you a teenager looking to earn money but don’t want to stack shelves or flip burgers? Are you a little older, taking a break from playing footy but want to stay fit and connected to the game? Or just love your footy and wanting to learn a new skill?
Then Umpiring is the option for you!
AFL North West is looking to recruit new umpires ahead of the 2020 season for both the Senior and Junior competitions.
If you love footy, you’ll love being an umpire. Not only do you get the best view of the action, you also get paid for the privilege. Keep fit, be part of a team, and learn leadership skills for both on and off the field.
People interested in taking up umpiring need to complete an online Laws of the Game course, then can access coaching that is delivered within the region.
Umpiring is a great way for players to learn the rules of the game which helps greatly with their own development as players.
For more information on taking up umpiring please see the flyer.
An introduction to Umpiring will be conducted as part of the AFL North West Education Roadshow, comprising sessions on both the Laws of the Game and practical aspects such as positioning, signalling, and match management. This session will be held on Saturday 29 February at Gunnedah Services Club from 10:30am to 2:00pm (includes lunch). Please speak to your club President to register for this session.
