Welcome Back!

Footy Season is approaching...

We all know what that means - where there's a game of footy there are UMPIRES, and we have some of the best umpires in the business - YOU!

For those of you on our list in 2015 who haven't yet re-registered go to our website and navigate through the tabs at the top to the UMPIRES area. There is a Frequently Asked Questions page which answers the 101 questions every umpire asks, and a REGISTER page where you can (you guessed it) register to umpire with us this season.

Training is back from this week - details below

Coaches: we have a new look coaching team raring to go, and keen to implement some of the new drills that they have all picked up at last weekend's Victorian State Umpire Coach Conference. We'll introduce the team at training, and from next week run a newsletter article on each coach so you all know who's who in the zoo!

Click here to check our promotional video out if you haven't already, and feel free to share it with any friends who may be interested in umpiring. 
We have had many enquiries about uniform sales. Please be patient as the league has signed a new partner in BLK who will be supplying us with uniforms for at least the next 5 seasons. We'd rather get it right than do a rush job, and have recently signed off on the artwork for the new gear, and placed an order. We will let you know as soon as it is available to order. BLK also supply the AFL, so we'll be looking the same as theAFL umpires.

Attn any Phyios, Doctors or trained Sports Medicine people

The SMJFL runs an Interleague program which has begun training recently. On occasion we need a stand in to cover Medic duties. If you are a qualified person with Sports Trainer Level 1, or similar we'd love to put you on our list of emergency contacts for when our regular trainer can't make it.

You need to be adept at taping techniques, and basic first aid.

We urgently need someone tonight Tuesday 23rd February) at the Moorabbin Oval in Linton St, Moorabbin from 5.00-8.30pm. Pay would be $70 for the session.

Contact Amanda on 0403 664 999 for details

We will be holding an information evening at training one night, but are waiting for a few sessions in as there are many umpires wanting to participate who are still heavily involved in their summer sporting pursuits. Once these are finished for most umpires we will explain all about Schedula, uniform etc.

We are in the process of finalising the Umpires Handbook for 2016 whoch will be distributed electronically so as not to waste paper. As soon as it's available for download we will tell you, but in the meantime the 2015 edition is still up on the website.
