Umpires Needed

The SWFL Umpires are again in need of new umpires for the 2024 season, which is now eight weeks away.

From last season, five up and coming younger umpires have moved to Perth for University, leaving another hole in the field umpiring ranks, while Boundary Umpire and Goal Umpire numbers are also low.

Training both practical and online along with resource training is available, with three highly experienced coaches along with an Umpires Co-ordinator in place to provide a smooth transition.

Field Umpiring pay rates range from $100 to $210 depending on the discipline, while Boundary Umpires can earn $60 for a Colts Game up to $100 for a League fixture.  Goal Umpire pay rates range from $55 to $90 depending on which match is being officiated.

Anyone interesting in umpiring should contact SWFL Umpires President Kevin Hutchins on 0408 524 776.  Training is every Wednesday from 5.30pm at Hands Oval.
