Umpiring

Anyone who loves the great game of Aussie Rules and is aged between 12 and 65, male or female, can take up umpiring.

Umpiring will keep you fit and healthy and earn you some money as well! Field, Boundary and Goal umpires are needed state-wide for junior football through to State League, and AFL Tasmania’s umpire pathway leads all the way to the AFL.

TSL Umpiring

The Tasmanian State League (TSL) is the highest level of umpiring an individual can be involved in around the state.

The TSL Umpiring Group is made up of the state’s most promising umpires, as well as experienced umpires from the three main umpiring associations in Tasmania, the TFUA (South), NTFUA (North) and NWUA (North West).

AFL Pathway

For those umpires who aspire to the AFL, the TSL is the competition that a Tasmanian must officiate in to be chosen. Since the reintroduction of the state league in 2009, 2 umpires namely Nick Foot (Field) and Mark Ensbey (Goal) have been selected onto the AFL Panel due to their outstanding performances.

The following Field Umpires have also been given AFL Contracts:

  • Shaun Gleeson (AFL Supplementary Field Umpire 2011-13)
  • Ben Lehner (AFL Supplementary Field Umpire 2013-14)
  • Joel Harris (AFL Supplementary Field Umpire in 2014)
  • Matt Clarke (AFL Supplementary Field Umpire in 2015)

National Championships

The TSL also provides opportunities to represent Tasmania at the under mentioned national championships:

– Under 18 National Championships

– AFL Women’s League

– Under 16 National Championships
