GRAND FINAL UMPIRES!


Hi everyone,

Congratulations to our 4 umpires selected to officiate in the U15 Youth Girls Grand Final this Saturday. Field Umpires: Cassie Collier & Hannah Layzell and Boundary Umpires Kim Docking & Amber Stelling will have a chance to show their skills with the whistle! Grace Bridges has been selected as emergency, but I'm sure she is NOT hoping that injury or sickness befall one of the others.... The fact that as an umpiring group we are able to appoint 4 female umpires to such an important game highlights the continuing role of females playing and officiating in our great game. Well done girls, I'm sure you'll do us proud!

UMPIRE PROFESSIONALISM: IMPORTANT FOR EVERYONE

This week: SUBMITTING PAPERWORK!

Nowadays it's more properly called ONLINE SUBMISSION rather than paperwork, but it still needs to be done properly.

First and foremost, once you have accepted your appointment on Schedula (before the deadline of course) check your MDP app. The game should be appearing, with an option to submit votes as well. If it's not, email Amanda ASAP, and we might be able to fix problems before Sunday!

Once the game is finished, you need to transfer the paper CMR to the online MDP. It's IMPORTANT to note that you don't need to type your own name in the umpire section - the app already KNOWS it's you. Only type the SECOND umpires name in the box, and ONLY ONE NAME per box please.

Ensure ALL official SMJFL umpires names are submitted on the app - or they will miss out on being paid. If you are not the umpire responsible for submitting the CMR ensure your name is on the paper form, or else your co-umpire may forget to submit your name.

MAKE SURE YOU BRING THE RIGHT ATTITUDE TO YOUR GAMES!
Do you PLAY as well as Umpire?

Please start thinking about finals time. If you are likely to play in a final or two we need to know. Our coaches need to start looking at the number of umpires we'll have available come finals time, and we'd like you to tell us who you play for and what division so we can start planning. There is a button at the bottom of this newsletter to click and submit your details or you can click this link http://smjfl.com.au/umpires-playing-in-finals-2016/ . Even if your team is only a remote chance, please fill out the form.

You may still be able to put your hand up to boundary umpire during the finals IF you can do so without exhausting yourself for your club game.
NO TRAINING NEXT WEEK:

Over the school holiday we will NOT be training on the first week (29th June) but will start again on the second week (6th July). 

However, we will not have access to the pavilion in the second week, so if we are hit with extreme weather conditions (like todays!) keep an eye on the website in case we cancel.
