Every Wednesday night starting February 8th 2017.


Training for umpires who only officiate on Sunday’s (Juniors) starts at 5.30pm 

For all other umpires training starts at 6pm.


At training you will do a combination of running and umpiring skills. We also hold coaching sessions each week.



Coaching Sessions?

A range of coaching sessions are held each week. At these sessions coaches will take you through rules, interpretations and skills you require to umpire on the weekend. A training calendar is published in advanced so umpires can plan their nights.

Most coaching sessions take place during training, however Senior Field Umpires meet at 7.45pm. We do have a coaching session for all Saturday Umpires that is held every 3 weeks at 7.45pm. 

All coaching sessions go for 30mins.



A meal is available each week. Some of the meals include Chicken Schnitzel, Pasta, Steak and Hot Beef Rolls. A range of drinks are also available.

Training also involves visits from AFL Umpires, a nutritionist, RDFL captains and coaches along with other special events.
