As you know we've all had a busy start to the season, but the uniform situation is now almost under control. If you ordered uniform during the last week we HOPE to have it ready for you at training, and from next week will be back to some sort of normal supply, but if we don't yet have your order packed don't panic. I CAN'T stay late tonight, so see me before or at the start of training - it might not be pre-packed, but we should be able to supply most of it.
All first year umpires can collect a green "TRAINEE" vest which is to be worn over the uniform. You will also need to collect red and yellow cards (hopefully you won't need to use them).
For those whose uniform from last year still fits you can keep wearing this in 2016. If you need new uniform you need to buy the BLK gear at the following prices:
Shirt - green: $40.00
Shorts - grey: $25.00
Socks - green: $12.00
Wristbands - white with SMJFL logo: $8.00
PLEASE NOTE: Uniform is exactly that - we are striving for a uniform look for our team. You may either wear full "old kit" or buy the entire new kit, don't mix and match. All four of the above items are compulsory to wear - sweatbands are NOT optional.
You will also need a whistle. The best sort are the hand held ones. These may be bought at any sports store. AFL umpires use the ACME Thunderer
We now have an order form on our website (Umpires > Forms & Documents) to pre-order and pick up at training. Please allow a week to process.
