During pre-season training your coach will liaise with you on the type/age level/division of umpiring you are interested in/suited for. Developing umpires may be paired with a Mentor to guide them through their first matches. Each week during the season the coaches complete the match appointments online in Schedula, the online appointment software.
Upon registering online with your SportingPulse account - you will automatically receive a Schedula account. There you can set up your availability for the whole season and/or week to week – if you will be playing football as well as umpiring you can set your availability so that you are able to be appointed to matches that are scheduled before or after your own.
During the season the match appointments are released weekly on a Wednesday at 12 noon, with umpires required to accept or reject their appointment online.
THE NEXT STEPS...
Please complete the online registration, you will then receive email updates from the SFUA Secretary regarding training and other information. You can then head along to a training session to speak with the coaches and get a feel for what umpiring in the SFUA will be like.
The Junior Umpire Intensive Program is brings together all junior aged umpires for a full, interactive umpiring experience that will prepare them with the basic building blocks for the season ahead.
We have junior members aged from 8-17 years, ranging from first year through to 5th year umpires. Each member will be provided opportunity to learn and grow through this program. We will then work with each individual umpire to build on their skills throughout the season.
The scheduled Junior Umpire Intensive Program has been POSTPONED due to the COVID-19 situation. Once we move closer to the May 31 proposed SFNL season start date - we will provide a schedule for training.
