More than 23km in the legs

More than 23km in the legs!

The Riddell Umpires preseason camp in Anglesea was enjoyed by all as we pushed ourselves to our limits and built the camaraderie amongst the group!

On Saturday We ran along a trial 12km long, ran a beep test, rode up and down some steep hills on bikes and completed a short sharp hard running session on the beach.
Sunday morning we ran out any soreness and exercised the legs in an hour session of run throughs.

All the umpires had a great time, and we certainly encourage any umpire to attend next year!

Hermit and Howard Our 2018 Halftime Auskick Umpires.

Riddell Umpires wishes to congratulate Bailey Hermit and Mitchell Howard on being selected as the 2018 Halftime Auskick Umpires. Bailey and Mitchell will get to run out onto either the MCG or Etihad Stadium and officiate the main halftime game centre stage. Both individuals are second year field umpires this year and have been nominated off a strong first year and junior finals campaign. This is one of the amazing opportunities that umpiring can bring to an individual. Congratulations again Bailey Hermit and Mitchell Howard.
