TRAINING: Currently it is anticipated that training will be held on Wednesday nights during the season at Moorleigh Reserve in Bentleigh. Further details will follow.

UNIFORM: In 2016 BLK was the official SMJFL uniform supplier, they have been replaced in 2017 by ISC who are designing us a range of umpiring gear to match the BLK uniform closely. In 2017 we are asking all of our umpires to wear either BLK or ISC uniform. Our squad will look similar to the AFL standard – green tops and socks with grey shorts with SMJFL logo. There was a change over period in 2016 in order to allow for umpires who had recently bought new uniform, but all umpires are expected to be in the new uniform for 2017.

To order uniform CLICK HERE : Please note – if you want to pick up from our office you need to ring ahead to make sure we (a) have stock on hand and (b) will be at the office when you turn up!

If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to ring Team Leader: Football Operations & Umpiring Amanda Beet on 0421 170 756 or email on

We are always looking for MENTORS to help our newest umpires learn their craft, and aid the more experienced ones with tips and tricks! If you are interested in becoming a mentor for 2017 please contact Amanda on the number above. Please note that potential mentors NEED to be able to attend training sessions, as we have to be giving the exact same information to umpires on match day, as what is being coached at training.
