Umpire numbers take a tumble - 4/10/21

"SFUA umpires manager Josh Leske said he believed "uncertainty around COVID and lockdowns kept more people away from sport than usual".

Speaking to Sunraysia Daily, Leske said the SFUA would work with the SFNL board and clubs around ways to recruit more adult umpires. He noted key factors in umpire retention were umpire abuse and "more importantly, pay rates for umpires".

Leske said special attention needed to be given to pay rates for lower levels of footy, as some members had commitments preventing them from umpiring the afternoon senior time slots.

Discussions are due to take place between SFUA and SFNL executives this year about what season 2022 will look like."

Happy Friday all,

Hoping all are faring well and venturing outside and getting that much needed sunshine and exercise.

The executive met on Wednesday night and it has been agreed that we will be holding an end of season bbq lunch at the clubrooms next month.

During the luncheon the majority of our traditional awards will also be presented to celebrate and recognise the effort that you the members put in umpiring what was the 2021 SFNL season.

More detailed information will follow shortly

Be well and stay fit,

President Hawk
