Monday, May 8 to Sunday, May 14, 2023.


The theme for Community Umpiring Week this year is “Celebration of Umpiring”. We want to promote that Umpiring is a great way to keep fit, be involved in Australian Football and earn pocket money too.

We need more umpires across community, and there are opportunities for all umpires no matter their background to progress through talent pathways to the elite, if they choose.

During this week, AFL Umpires are visiting Community Umpiring groups for training sessions. Community Umpires will also have the opportunity to join the AFL Umpires on-field prior to each match in the Round.

Check out this video from your AFL club captains showing their support for Community Umpires!

Check in with your local club to find out what celebrations are taking place in your local area.
