Riddell Umpires Preseason Is Here

The Riddell Umpires welcome all new and returning umpires to join us for the start of official preseason at MacPherson Park in Melton this wednesday 19th of February at 6pm. It would be great to see as many people there as possible.

Please note that the training start time has been adjusted in 2014. This year we will be starting training 15 minutes earlier than previous years in an effort to provide more time on the track for fitness and skills as well as allowing meetings to take place at more convenient times.

Please also keep in mind the preseason camp starting on Friday March the 14th. Please see the camp story in latest news for more details or speak to our fitness coach Nick Luke at training this wednesday.
