AFL Queensland is on the hunt for new umpires ahead of the 2015 community football season.
Umpiring is a great way to earn money, get in the game and increase your fitness, while providing a clear pathway to the national level.
Queensland State Umpire Manager Gary Fila said umpiring allows people to combine fitness, fun and casual work.
“Umpiring is a unique activity that blends an active lifestyle with a sense of community,” said Fila.
“It allows people to become involved casually; working around their busy schedules, or it can be pursued at a more serious level.”
Umpiring is a welcoming multicultural and diverse group, with differing roles developing distinctive skillsets; such as the leadership of field umpires, the assertiveness of goal umpires or the precision of boundary umpires.
Full training is provided, meaning you don’t have to be an AFL expert to start your umpiring journey.
“Training sessions are designed to give new umpires a good grasp of the basics of the game with on-going coaching throughout the season,” said Fila.
“The AFL fully supports all its umpires and aims to provide a fun workplace that people can get the most out of.”
“So whether you are a former player looking to continue in the game, an aspiring AFL umpire or just someone looking for a new hobby, the AFL umpires program caters for you.”
