The Community Football Tribunal will act for the following leagues:

• West Australian Amateur Football League
• Junior Football – Fremantle, Northern, Peel and Central Conferences
• Metro Football League
• AFL Masters WA


What’s Required?
Tribunal Secretary will be required to be available weekly to act as Secretary to a Tribunal which will take place on Wednesday nights between 1 April and 30 September 2018 and attend an induction prior to the commencement of the football season.
