Thank you for you attendance at one of our Club Umpire Training nights. We hope you found the information presented useful. Please click the following link to download the presentation shown on the night.
In addition to the info session above, you may find some of the videos below useful resources.
We thank the Northern Football League who produced the following clips and have allowed us to use them as an educational tool. Please note that there are several differences between our league and the NFL – notably that we use volunteer parent umpires, not league umpires as used in these videos, we do not return the ball to the middle after a behind is scored, and that the distance run before having a bounce is 10m in the SMJFL (not 15 as per video).
As an additional resource some useful video clips are available to view by clicking the following:-
1. BALL UPS
2. KICKING OFF THE GROUND
3. MODIFIED (HUG) TACKLE
4. ONE BOUNCE ONLY – SMJFL IS TEN METRES (not 15)
5. OUT OF BOUNDS (KICKED)
6. OUT OF BOUNDS (GENERAL PLAY)
7. NO SMOTHERING
8. NO SCORING ALLOWED (Under 12 Girls may score) and in SMJFL the ball is kicked back into play rather than returned to the middle after a behind is scored.
