In 2020, Clubs in B Reserves, C2, C3 and C4 as highlighted in green in the payment schedule will be required to provide an Umpire who will be pooled and appointed by the WAFC. Where possible these Umpires will be appointed close to their home.
Pooled Umpires shall only umpire one game on any given day to ensure the highest standard of umpiring possible is provided to the League team. Where a Pooled Umpire is willing and able to umpire two games in a day then they can only officiate in Colts and League in order to rest between games. This must be stipulated on your nomination. WAFC Umpiring reserve the right to observe an Umpire officiating in both Colts and League to make a determination as to their level of competency and fitness. If it is deemed the Umpire in this case is not up to the required standard, the club will be asked to source an additional Umpire.
CLUB APPOINTED UMPIRES
All remaining grades will be umpired by Club Appointed Umpires who will be paid by their respective clubs. It is also important to note the acceptance of all Club Umpire nominations will be at the discretion of WAFC Umpiring.
