The online program, which begins in April, is free to join and is aimed at developing all current and aspiring Australian Football umpires from around the world.
The 2021 Umpire Development Series will cover a range of different topics, including the role of an umpire, communication, positioning, decision making and the laws of the game, with sessions delivered by some of AFL Europe’s most experienced and highly accredited umpires.
Signing up to the program will register you into four 60-minute sessions, held via Zoom at 6:00PM (GMT) on every Wednesday in April (7th, 14th, 21st & 28th).
Attending all four of these sessions will award you an accreditation and certificate from the AFL, although beyond that it will provide you with the confidence and skills to begin umpiring matches around Europe immediately.
