AFL Umpire School Academy

AFL Gippsland are working with local schools and umpiring associations to bring to life AFL Umpire school-based umpire academies in Gippsland in Term 1 next year. The program will provide students at selected schools with the opportunity to engage in on-campus after school hours umpire training from local association coaches. The program is conducted over 6-8 weeks targeting Years 8-12 students and will cover all three disciplines. It is hoped that the students will then transfer into umpiring local football to alleviate some shortfalls that currently exist.

We will be announcing the Academies shortly with two and possibly three schools coming on board for Term 1. If you know a school who may be interested in engaging in the program, please contact AFL Gippsland at info@aflgippsland.com.au
