Umpiring

The AFL Queensland Junior Football Umpiring Program (JFUP) involves all umpire training,
education, support and ongoing development for our Queensland club based umpires officiating U8’s – U10’s. Club Umpires must be 12 turning 13 in the year they register in order to be a part of the program.

 

TO REGISTER FOR THE JUNIOR FOOTBALL UMPIRE PROGRAM,

 

PLEASE EMAIL THE CLUB WITH YOUR INTEREST.

 

Tailored to meet the umpires’ needs, the JFUP provides:

 

  • Initial and ongoing training through the year

 

  • Content relative to experience – sessions broken into first year and second year + club umpires

 

  • Training sessions located close to home to minimise travel requirements

 

  • Session content aligned to specifically to the fundamentals of umpiring, and the junior modified
    rules. 

 

Umpires receive free of charge:

 

  • An Umpiring starter pack (including bag, whistle, cap and sweatbands – paid for by club, subsidised by AFL Queensland)

 

  • An umpiring uniform ( paid by club, subsidised by AFL Queensland)

 

  • An Umpiring Manual – outlining everything umpires need to know

 

  • Match payments per game (rate set by the individual club)

 

  • Upon successful completion of the program (see training schedule for details), a certificate of competition.

 

 There are three education and super session blocks throughout the year, located at venues across South East Queensland.

 

Umpires may also attend any of the AFL Queensland League Appointed Umpires training sessions throughout the year to help develop their umpiring.
