UMPIRING DEPARTMENT

The Umpiring Department oversees the entire Southern Football Netball League (SFNL) umpiring program, including the education, coaching, development, physical performance, selection, recruitment, list management and performance evaluation of all Umpires.

 

Coaches mantra:

“To help and improve the list as umpires and as people.”
“To assist in getting the most out of themselves and give the umpires constructive and posititive feedback at all times.”
“To enjoy the sport of umpiring and relish the challenge.”
