Round Seven – Community Umpiring Round

This weekend across Australia is Community Umpiring Round.

The SWFL will acknowledge and does acknowledge the great job our women and men do each week officiating our great game.  Last weekend 72 Umpires officiated matches in the SWFL, when normally that number would be over 90.

Currently due to Injury and Covid-19 our umpires are hard pressed for numbers, but continue to support the game to ensure all fixtures are held with panel umpires.

On the weekend spare a thought for our umpires and acknowledge a job well done, potentially curb your enthusiasm to yell and abuse and consider the real time decision making the umpire had to make a decision.

Anyone who has ever considered umpiring is encouraged to make contact with the Umpires (details on Umpires page of SWFL website).
