Become an Umpire

The Ferny Grove Falcons are keen to hear from anyone with an interest in becoming an umpire for the club, starting at under 8’s through to under 10’s.

It’s fun, so have a go! No costs are involved, and you receive payment for your time and effort.  Learn crucial life skills involving decision making, assertiveness, leadership, effective communication and responsibility. You will make new friends and get fit too!

We will teach you the rules of AFL, so there is no requirement to have any prior knowledge or experience. We will equip you with all you need to know and ensure that you are adequately prepared with the knowledge to competently administer the duties of a field umpire.

Future aspirations! Who knows what may lay ahead for you. The AFL has established career paths for promising umpires with state and national representation and elite training squads. This could be the beginning of an extremely successful and rewarding career as a top grade AFL umpire. Imagine umpiring at either a packed Gabba or MCG, in control of a match involving the best footballers in Australia!
