Regional Tournament Umpire Clinics

written by usaflua on June 23, 2015 in News

Stating the obvious – you cannot have a game without umpires. The USAFL Umpires Association main objectives are the recruitment, training, and development of USAFL Field, Boundary, and Goal Umpires. But we cannot do it alone. We must have help. Your help. Each team’s executive committee must keep these same objectives. The development of USAFL Umpires in each city is paramount to the success of your franchise and our league. Together, we can ensure that each and every future USAFL game is adjudicated with properly trained, professional umpires.

Players and coaches who have attended clinics have found this basic knowledge has helped them on game day. Some have found that umpiring has helped to offset the cost of travel
to games and tournaments. Others have found a way to stay active with the game after playing days have passed. Looking to simply learn more about the game or pursue another way to participate in the game of Footy, everyone is welcome to attend!
