posted Mar 6, 2013, 5:38 PM by Blues Admin

Hi Everyone,

Please see this message from Carl Fletcher regarding recruitment of umpires for the 2013 season. Anyone interested in umpiring is invited to come to the AFL Umpire Roadshow this Sunday at Bateau Bay Sports Facility (details below). To register your interest, please email by Friday 1pm.


Good Afternoon Everyone,

I am pleased to now advise that this Sunday 10 March we will be holding the season launch for umpiring on the Central Coast at the Bateau Bay AFL Facility, Passage Rd, Bateau Bay. The launch will be held from 5pm till 7pm. Could all umpires, new umpires and any club people attending please reply to this email by this Friday 1pm for catering purposes.

All umpires from 2012, along with all new and interested umpires are encouraged to attend. As part of this launch I am pleased to advise that this launch will coincide with the AFL Umpires Roadshow. AFL Field umpire Stephen McBurney, a four time AFL Grand Final umpire and an AFL Boundary umpire Chris Gordon who has umpired one AFL Grand Final will be present to share their insights into umpiring at the elite level along with conducting some skill activities.

This will be a unique opportunity and I encourage all umpires, or interested umpires to attend. I would also like to invite all clubs to send any interested players, parents, committee members or coaches. Also make sure you tell any of your friends that might be interested in umpiring to attend.

Below I have provided some of the key points that can be shared with people interested in umpiring:

· No Experience Necessary

· FREE coaching and mentoring

· Earn $15 - $60 per game, each weekend April to September.

· Need to be turning 13 years of age in 2013 or older.

· Umpire a game in the morning before you play.

· Boundary and Goal umpiring opportunities also available.

· Parents also welcome to get involved!

Could all clubs please promote this event through your club network to ensure that all clubs are well represented in umpiring this year.

Please now reply by Friday 1pm to confirm your attendance. I look forward to seeing everyone this Sunday.
