Umpiring

Have you ever considered picking up a whistle and becoming an umpire?

As an umpire you have the best seat in the house at every game!

It’s a great way for players and coaches to increase their rule knowledge; plus for those that have hung up their bib, why not pick-up a whistle – it’s a great way to stay involved!

The good news is, to get started all you need to bring is a bit of enthusiasm and a passion for the game - we’ll take care of rest and give you the tools and support you need to become an umpire.
