Last weekend saw all of our SMJFL Umpire coaches attended the 2015 National Umpiring Conference held at Victoria Park. All our coaches   participated in either  one of two of the  training workshops which included the Development Coach Level 1 and the Advanced Coach Level 2. The conference  also  included interactive sessions to share and learn about other  umpiring coaching initiatives across the state.

We are the only league to  make  compulsory that all of our Umpire  coaches  are  accredited.

Head coach David Anselmi had this to say about the conference: “The continuous development of our coaches will ensure that our junior umpires are provided with the best personal learning environment, with the aim to become the best junior football league umpiring group within the state”

Hopefully this conference will set  our coaches and umpires up  for a successful season ahead!
