USAFL Community Update

Letter from the President

What is perhaps the most important component to conducting an Aussies Rules game? Umpiring! Over the past few years, Umpire Director Jeff Persson has been hard at work, conducting clinics across the country. While Jeff is known for many things, such as his beard (where did it go?) and handing out yellow cards, he should be commended for his passion for officiating and helping develop the game across the country. A long term goal of the USAFL is to have an accredited umpire at each USAFL game and we are headed towards that milestone as last year over 100 people attended clinics. The USAFL is also aiming to send 5 umpires to the International Cup 2014. If interested, you could earn the Umpire Scholarship that supports your involvement for the trip.
