The Camberwell Sharks runs a Junior Umpires programme for 13 to 16 year olds.
Only kids registered as players, ex players or have a family member associated with the Camberwell Sharks can apply.
An application does not guarantee a place on the roster.
The kids umpire Under 8’s 9’s & 10’s – see link below to the YJFL Junior Matchday Guidelines 2018.
The programme reports through to the Umpire Coordinator.
The Umpire Coordinator provides training pre the season & mentoring on game day.
The Umpire Coordinator will “run with” new umpires until they are well enough qualified to umpire solo.
Our stats show the kids benefit in moving out of their comfort zone.
Parents feedback has been nothing but positive.
The Umpire Coordinator will meet & speak to the Junior Umpires on an ongoing basis.
The Goal is to develop our juniors in a role they would not have the opportunity to elsewhere, to develop confidence & develop decision making.
Finally they must have fun.
