AFL Community Umpiring Week

Community Umpiring Week is designed to increase awareness of umpiring as a choice as an additional activity to playing or choosing umpiring as a sport of choice as an alternative way to participate in the game.

Between Round 8 and 9 of the 2022 Toyota AFL Premiership Season we will celebrate Community Umpiring Week with the aim to encourage people to get involved in umpiring Australian Football at the community level.
Throughout the week, May 6 - May 13, the AFL will be celebrating Community Umpiring Week through a number of initiatives:
• AFL Umpires will attend community Club training sessions
• Umpires at each AFL match this weekend will be led onto the ground by community umpires
• AFL Umpires will officiate in junior community matches
• Current AFL players will officiate in junior community matches

Over 94% of umpires currently play or have played junior football. You can play and umpire on the same day or on alternate days. It is a great way to keep fit, earn money, develop life skills and make life-long friends.
