Female - Umpire

As the game continues to grow in Western Australia particularly in the female space, the game needs more female Umpires to take up the role to support that growth.
Umpiring provides females several opportunities to get involved in community football with pathways to progress your Umpiring into state level competitions.
So, take control, whether you are a current player, former player or never played the game before Umpiring IT IS for everyone!
Now, if being in the middle making all the big decisions as a Field Umpire isn’t your thing but you still want to be involved, you can pursue Boundary or Goal Umpiring instead.

How you can begin your Umpiring pathway:
