Umpires continue to be one of the critical factors in having well run football competitions. We know that good umpires can make a significant difference to the quality of the game and environment.
WACFL strongly suggests that every League receives direct reporting from an Umpiring advisor to manage the coordination and professionalism of umpires.
Items the Umpiring Advisor may report on include: -
- Numbers (database)
- Accreditation Status
- Representation of the Umpires
- Rulings and interpretations
- Training opportunities
- Fees (budgeting)
- WAFC Assistance
This portfolio would be best suited to someone who has a strong background in umpiring and can manage and represent the umpiring groups best interests.
They should also be proactive in sourcing opportunities for umpiring development.
